Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn reportedly wants to delay Brexit. Again. It clearly seems his goal is to get rid of Brexit altogether.
The United Kingdom is set to leave the horrendous European Union on October 31st. As a Dutchman who has been pleading for his own country to do the same for years now, I can only congratulate my British friends. The EU is a bureaucratic monster. It pretends that there is unity where there is not. Europe is not one homogenous mass. It’s incredibly diverse with different languages, different cultures, different economies, and different political systems. Forcing them all into one big empire can only lead to one result: disaster.
That’s why the Brits are wise to get out while they still can. Well done Brits, you’re possibly the only ones who’ll save themselves once the EU meets its fiery end.
Unbelievably enough, some British socialists refuse to accept this. Their own people voted for Brexit in a referendum and anyone with eyes can see that the EU is doomed to fail, but still they try to keep the UK in the EU — at least for as long as possible. The Sun’s political editor Tom Newton Dunn now reports on Twitter that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn “still wants his MPs to vote for an October 14 general election tomorrow, but with a ‘mechanism’ attached to lock in an A50 extension to avoid No Deal.” A50 stands for Article 50, the article in the EU treaty that allows for members to get out and regain their independence.
Interesting. A senior Labour source close to Corbyn tells me he still wants his MPs to vote for an October 14 general election tomorrow, but with a ‘mechanism’ attached to lock in an A50 extension to avoid No Deal. Is one actually possible?

If this happens it’d be disastrous for the UK. Not only would it show weakness once again (which will immediately be exploited by the sharks in Brussels), but it’ll also create a situation in which a reversal of the Brexit vote is more likely than ever… which is exactly why Tory leader and Prime Minister Boris Johnson is having none of it:
To show our friends in Brussels that we're united in our purpose, MPs should vote with the govt against Corbyn’s pointless delay.
I want everybody to know, there are no circumstances in which I will ask Brussels to delay. We are leaving on 31 Oct, no ifs or buts. 🇬🇧

“To show our friends in Brussels that we’re united in our purpose,” Johnson writes on Twitter, “MPs should vote with the govt against Corbyn’s pointless delay. I want everybody to know, there are no circumstances in which I will ask Brussels to delay. We are leaving 31 Oct, no ifs or buts.”
