Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has reportedly started to wonder what Brexit is, and whether or not it’s a good idea. Jeremy’s curiosity follows Wednesday’s House of Commons vote, which the Labour leadership supported, to allow the Government to trigger Article 50 beginning Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
A number of Labour sources have stated that following the vote Jeremy started asking what Brexit actually is, and whether he was right to vote for it or not. Speaking anonymously one Labour MP told us that after the vote Corbyn asked him ‘do you know what Brexit actually means, before adding ‘it’s got something to do with leaving NATO right?’
Another senior party figure told us that Corbyn had never really understood what Brexit was, even during the EU referendum campaign when he was obliged to support ‘Remain’. The source explained that for the first few weeks Corbyn ‘was convinced that Brexit is a breakfast cereal’, so couldn’t understand why it had become so politically divisive. He added that they eventually persuaded him it might have something to do with the European Union but as ‘Corbyn doesn’t know what that is either’ this didn’t help that much.
