With Labour scrambling to gain back working-class voters in the north, it’s clear the attempted EU referendum sabotage devastated the party who once stood for the little people.
To this day, Labour is more concerned about label politics, dividing people through Wealth, race, and religion than helping common folk through relatable causes. People can only take divisive cancel group think for so long, then switch off and search for a political home elsewhere.
This was evident in the last election when the Tories smashed labours so-called red wall seats. Labour took general folk for granted and didn’t care enough to save their seats because they thought people would continue to vote Labour because they always did before blindly. How wrong they were.
Even today, Labour still pushes the leftist divide and conquer mantra where cancel culture is the new silencing tactic. As a once Northern Labour supporter many moons ago, I like many feel Labour has drifted too far from its once working roots. I, for one, feel it’s too late for Labour to gain any momentum in the north. What’s say you? ‘leave your comments below.
Quote from former trade Union activist Paul Embery.
“I think it was a disastrous policy.
“I think it was always going to result in Labour haemorrhaging millions of working-class votes and that’s exactly what it did.
“I think it was a disastrous policy” The Conservatives fought the 2019 election with a pledge to ‘Get Brexit Done’
“Actually, if you look at the data it’s pretty clear Labour lost more amongst leave supporters who had previously voted for Labour in the 2017 election than it did from remain voters.
“The idea that you could say to millions of working-class people that we thought you got it wrong, and therefore we’re going to force you to take it again and there’s not going to be any kickback from that was completely naïve and they played a big price for it.”
