It comes as no surprise to hear of Labour MPs complaining about Theresa May calling a general election for the 8th of June because many of them face losing their seats.
A number of Labour MPs are in marginal constituencies and the party currently has terrible poll ratings. It also doesn’t help having Jeremy Corbyn as party leader.
Let’s look at the major reason for this election. May has stated that while the country is coming together, Westminster is not. On a daily basis we hear of some plot to derail Brexit. There’s MP after MP making one demand or another for a second referendum, to remain in the single market and customs union, that we should prioritise the rights of EU citizens living here over the rights of British citizens living there, that we need to stay as close as possible to our European “partners” by having the softest of Brexits, and that there must be some way to stop Brexit. This has been happening ever since the country voted to leave.
May has finally lost patience with Westminster. Parliament had the chance to stand as one over Brexit, but many MPs thought it best to snipe at the government for the next three years demanding concession after concession. Now they’re terrified of losing their seats.
Many lefties have moaned about the coronation of May as Conservative party leader and therefore PM, and now she’s giving them the chance to get rid of her. What are they afraid of? They’ve been given their chance. It’s now up to them to accept the challenge and get her out.
Only, they don’t want that opportunity. Many Labour MPs know they’re going to lose their seats, particularly in areas that voted to leave the EU while they themselves supported remain. Even now, there’s Labour MPs that refuse to accept the referendum result and would happily cancel it. Step forward, Owen Smith.
This election is going to be a defining moment in Britain’s history. We could witness the total destruction of the Labour party this year. Thoroughly deserved of course. This party ignores the very reason for its foundation. It ignores the very people it’s supposed to represent. If it gets slaughtered on the 8th of June it only has itself to blame.
And I for one will be glad to see it take a hammering. I’m fed up of its moaning and whining about Brexit. I’m sick of listening to Labour MPs go on about how I didn’t know what I was voting for. I’ve had enough of them telling me I’m a knuckle dragging racist and xenophobe. And I’m angry they think I’m a thick as two planks because I had the audacity to vote against their EU superstate ideals.
Goodbye Labour. It wasn’t nice knowing you.
