‘Mainstream’ media claims don’t stand up
Media are talking up strife among Shadow Cabinet members over the ‘failure’ of today’s meeting to change Labour’s policy on Brexit, claiming that a decision has been ‘delayed’ for two weeks.
But this is not news. Unions had already asked for time to consult, meaning that even if there was a change it was not on the cards before 8 July at the earliest.
Once again, those desperate for Labour to go ‘full remain’ are trying to control the narrative and box Corbyn in by briefing the media.
