The Labour Party, has often in its history, suffered ideological nervous breakdowns.
‘Brexit’ has been a spectacle of a middle Britain, trapped between two fanatical minorities, of Right and Left.
‘Brexit’ however, has been a defining moment for the Labour Party.
When Jeremy Corbyn became Labour leader, un-polarised and neutral in his approach, he seemed poorly placed to shake up the Houses of Parliament.
But he found a niche in accepting both Leavers and Remainers, that was in part a canny business decision.
Lord Chancellor David Kilmuir, himself an enthusiast for British membership of the European Economic Community, warned prime minister Harold Macmillan:
“The surrenders of sovereignty involved are serious ones and I think that as a matter of practical politics it will not be easy to persuade parliament or the public to accept them.”
The Labour Party, also like to present themselves, as the defenders of old fashioned business values.
