Formerly-Labour MP Frank Field, a Brexit supporter, has announced in the Commons in the last half hour that he now intends to vote for Theresa May’s dismal Brexit deal:
While claiming that his decision ‘doesn’t excuse the government for its incredible incompetence‘, Field will support a deal that manages – against all expectations before Theresa May tabled it – to be worse than ‘no deal’.
Right-wing Labour MPs John Mann and Kevin Barron have announced that they would also support May’s deal, while other right-wingers are reported to intend to.
Nobody should miss the fact that it is the ‘bitterites’, as described by Labour’s former deputy PM John Prescott, who are riding to Theresa May’s defence in her hour of need.
The poor and suffering of the UK will surely be thankful.
