Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I have just had occasions to revisit Labour's 2017 manifesto. You know, the one that Brexiteers use to say every Labour MP was voted in under a manifesto saying they would leave?

Not surprisingly, that turns out to be a grave distortion. Here is an important paragraph, with my underlining:

Labour recognises that leaving the EU with ‘no deal’ is the worst possible deal for Britain and that it would do damage to our economy and trade. We will reject ‘no deal’ as a viable option and if needs be negotiate transitional arrangements to avoid a cliff-edge’ for the economy.
