Labour has committed the most heinous betrayal of working-class Brexiteers and predictably they have responded with anger. Sharon Hodgson, Labour MP for Washington and Sunderland West, has faced the vitriol first-hand.
She voted for the Benn Bill and against calling a General Election. In an interview she said:
“As Shadow Minister for Public Health, I could not countenance allowing us to leave without a deal knowing that it could lead to medicine shortages.
“I, therefore, voted for the Bill to prevent a No Deal Brexit last night, and against a General Election.”
However, in a potential foretaste of the price Labour will pay at the polls, following the posting of the interview on Facebook, users quickly hit back, one said;
“CAN’T BE TRUSTED! You couldn’t be TRUSTED to abide by your Electorates decision and represent their wishes.
“You are not worthy to represent the good people of your constituency.”
Another called for her immediate deselection. It begins to become apparent why Comrade Corbyn is running so scared of the ballot box…….
