If you thought the Labour party’s remainer mindset had started to subside, new polling data shows the complete opposite.
A recent YouGov survey showed 59% of grassroots Labour members want Keir Starmer to fight to rejoin the EU, with only 15% wanting to move on.
Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen said: “This starkly demonstrates the circle that Starmer can’t square between his metropolitan members and the voters in the former Red Wall seats of the Midlands and the North.
“Whatever Starmer says his policy is on the EU, he and his party can’t be trusted if they ever get power not to sell us all back into vassalage as a member of the undemocratic and unaccountable European Union.”
This poll took place after Keir said: “The referendum was five years ago now. We have left the EU. There is no case for rejoining.”
Whichever way you look at this, the truth is the red wall seats voted majority to leave the EU, and Labour lost those seats because of their remainer stance.
Starmer either tells Labour members to move on from Brexit or face being decimated at the next election.
