Labour fence siting over Brexit continues.

Weirdly Labourr Party members backing Jeremy Corbyn and voting down a motion which would have led to the party becoming remain-supporting.is actually a honest one though it will leave many confused  and it will be interesting to see how "Welsh" Labour  whosleader Mark Drakeford, has written to party members confirming that Welsh Labour will campaign to remain if there is another referendum on Brexit. in any forthcoming election.
I suppose it may depend on who produces the leaflets we get trough our doors , your candidates electoral address , my differ from  UK wide Labour leaflet.
The UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has promised that a government he leads will negotiate a new Brexit deal and put it to a referendum but he has resisted calls to say how the party should campaign.
Wales Online reports that.
A vote was held at the conference in Brighton yesterday afternoon afternoon.
Earlier in the day, it had looked like Mr Corbyn would be forced into supporting remain - against his wishes after the UK's largest union, Unison, said it will back a motion for the party to back remain in any second EU referendum.
However, delegates voted for a motion put forward by the National Executive Committee.
The main part of that motion reads: "If people vote to leave on those terms, Labour will deliver that and leave the EU with that negotiated deal. If people vote to remain, Labour would implement that and seek to reform the EU as members.
"A Labour government will deliver whichever decision is made by the people of the UK."

The three options which were voted on
  1. The National Executive Committee (NEC) motion says the party should "only decide how to campaign" at a one-day special conference, following the election of a Labour Government PASSED
  1. Composite 13 says a General Election is needed and "the only way to resolve Brexit is through a confirmatory referendum with an option to remain in the EU, against a credible leave option". LOST
  1. The final option, which Aberconwy constituency Labour Party has backed, says a no deal Brexit would be "damaging" and "supports the party leadership continuing to prioritise the fight to block a No Deal Brexit/Hard-Brexit, using all necessary and available means, including moving a Vote of no confidence in the Government, fighting for a general election and supporting a public vote on the terms of any departure from the European Union". PASSED
 Te truth is that there is that there is a significant  number of Labour members and supporters including Jeremy Corbyn , who regard  the European Union as a Capitalist Club.

They may well have a point but they are delusioned  the idea that LEXIT (Left Brexit) will result in these Islands becoming some kind of Socialist Utopia.

The idea that out of the ashes of Brexit  people will realise that the Tories will be exposed for self interested claque that is only there to increase their  own interest and who are intent on destroying the NHS and Welfare state , may look good on paper  but the reality is , that only a few years after a Labour Government invokes Brexit , it wil be they that will be held responsible for the economic disaster that will follow, and an even more vicious (if it possible) will be swept into power in the manner of Margaret Thatcher 40 years ago.

 Wales must rejectt this and follow Scotland out of the Brexit (Left or Right) union.
