Jeremy Corbyn delighted Remain Boss, Roland Rudd, with his multiple TV appearances & speeches in the run-up to the EU referendum vote.
Rudd admitted this on Bloomberg TV two days before the vote.
The exact quote is at 3m 37s:
Yet Angela Eagle, Hillary Benn, Chuka Umunna, & Seema Malhotra have repeatedly claimed Corbyn did not do enough.
They can’t all be right.
So many Labour MPs voted for the Iraq war, Tuition Fees, and for airstrikes on Syria — they all wanted Corbyn out of the way before last week’s Chilcot Iraq Inquiry.
Therefore ‘Blairites’ blame Corbyn for their own inability to defend the EU.
New Labour’s disdain for democracy becomes clearest when nominating successors.
Coming up with a challenger to Corbyn, has put them in total disarray.
How ironic that — given their individual ambition — New Labour dinosaurs are incapable of leadership or collective decision-making.
What will they do next to persuade the country to vote for them?
More Project Fear?
Angela Eagle is an experienced parliamentarian but has no charisma and was never more than a junior minister.
Her wooden PMQ’s performance in December 2015 against the equally wooden George Osborne was obviously stage-managed with both sides’s lines seemingly written by the same team.
Perhaps a clue lies in the fact that Angela Eagle shared the same Pro-EU platform with Roland Rudd’s sister Amber Rudd in the week before the Referendum.
