Brexit, Corbyn will remain neutral in the event of a second referendum


LONDON – "I would remain neutral on Brexit". Neither to stay in the European Union, nor to come out of it: this is therefore the official position that Jeremy Corbyn will adopt the issue that has broken the UK for three and a half years. The same Labor leader stated this evening by participating in a series of interviews on the BBC with the leaders of the four main parties, including Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson.



All against "partner" Jeremy Corbyn: "It will bring the United Kingdom to decline"

Corbyn reiterated what his plan will be, if he wins the early December 12 elections: first negotiate a new agreement with Brussels for Britain to leave the EU, then hold a second referendum in which the British people will be called to choose between this agreement and the choice to remain in the EU. While wanting to negotiate an agreement that leads to a form of "soft Brexit" such as to maintain greater economic ties with the EU than those provided for by the agreement reached in recent months by Boris Johnson, Corbyn would not support his agreement, nor would he he would oppose during the referendum campaign: "I would remain neutral, in order to be credible in my promise to the voters to make any decision they will take in the referendum", explained the Labor leader to the BBC.



Try it again Jeremy

Boris Johnson he immediately criticized him: "How can he remain indifferent on such a vital issue for our country? I do not understand how he can negotiate an agreement with the EU which would then remain neutral in the referendum". Corbyn's intent is actually clear: try not to antagonize the "Remainers", the 48 percent who voted in the 2016 referendum to remain in the EU, nor the "Leavers", 52 percent who voted for get out of it, in view of the call to the polls in three weeks. Even the Labor electorate, in fact, is divided by Brexit, with about three quarters of Labor supporters, in London and in the major cities, lined up to remain in the EU, but a quarter of Labor voters, in depressed north-eastern industrial centers of England in particular, who voted to leave the European Union.



Anti-Semitism, that prejudice signed by Corbyn

The risk, for Corbyn, is that a similar tactic ends up on the contrary to alienate both of them: disappointing the Labor Europeans, pushing them to vote for a more decidedly pro-EU party, like the Liberal Democrats or the Greens; and irritating Labor's anti-Europeans, pushing them to vote for a party that is more hostile to the EU, such as Nigel Farage's Brexit Party or Johnson's conservatives, to say the least. The Labor leader claims that "Brexit has divided our country, while I want to unite it". The 12 December elections will reveal whether he has succeeded.
