Huge number of Labour Leave voters considering abandoning Corbyn – shock election poll – News 247


 Jeremy Corbyn has been repeatedly criticised over his position on Brexit in the lead up to the crucial December 12 general election The Labour Party has said if they win the election, they will renegotiate a new deal with the European Union, before putting the deal back to the British people in the form of a second referendum Mr Corbyn has said he will remain “neutral” in the lead up to a potential fresh national vote on the issue  But, the party have been criticised over the stance, with Brexiteers claiming the Labour Party would only be offering the choice of a soft-Brexit or Remain to the electorate  And the party’s Brexit position could be damaging Labour ahead of the December general election, according to the latest polls  A poll by YouGov, found Brits who voted for the Labour Party in 2017, but to Leave the EU in 2016, were almost twice as likely to be unsure on whether to back Mr Corbyn in the 2019 December election, than those who voted to Remain  Of those surveyed, 24 percent of Labour Leave voters “don’t know” whether they should support Mr Corbyn next month  Meanwhile, 13 percent of Labour voters, who decided they wanted to Remain in the EU in 2016, said they were unsure on whether to back Mr Corbyn in the general election  The poll surveyed 11,277 Brits between November 12 to 20 asking how they intended to vote in the general election  The results will come as a warning sign to the Labour Party, as the Tories look to target traditional Labour seats in the north of England, with many overwhelmingly voting to leave in the historic EU referendum  Mr Johnson believes securing the backing of these areas will be enough to give him a majority in the election next month  Speaking in Wales on Monday, Boris Johnson announced a wave of investment once the UK has left the EU   Mr Johnson said: “When we get Brexit done, believe me we will unleash a tide of investment into this country ” He said the Conservatives were the only party with a deal which was “ready to go”  He got a laugh from the crowd when he referenced the Welsh word for microwave, saying: “Just pop it in the popty ping, as we say in Wales, and it’s there We could be out by January.” But, it comes as the latest polls show the Conservatives lead over Labour narrow to just seven points, according to an opinion poll by ICM for Reuters showed on Monday    Support for the Conservatives fell one point to 41 percent, while the Labour Party was up two points on 34 percent  The pro-European Union Liberal Democrats were unchanged on 13 percent while the Brexit Party was down one point on four percent  ICM surveyed 2,004 people online between Nov 22 and 25. And it said that for five parties that are not contesting all seats, it had only given respondents the chance to support those which are standing in their constituencies  It comes amid reports that Government is making preparations for a curtailed process that cuts down the Queen’s Speech ceremony in case Mr Johnson is the new prime minister and wants to drive ahead with a second reading of the withdrawal agreement bill before the Commons rises for Christmas recess  The general election is due to take place on 12 December and the results will emerge in the early hours of Friday 13 December  A government spokesman said: “The new Parliament will be summoned to meet on Tuesday 17 December, when the business will be the election of the Speaker and the swearing-in of members  “Should this Prime Minister return, the state opening of Parliament and the Queen’s Speech will follow on Thursday 19 December Trending  “The state opening of Parliament will take place with reduced ceremonial elements, as was the case following the early general election in 2017  “This is due both to the early general election and the proximity of the state opening to Christmas  “If there is a change of government following the election it is anticipated that the Queen’s Speech would be in January on a more usual timetable but this would be a matter for the incoming administration ”

  1. I just can't vote for someone who is willing to meet with different terror groups all over the world but refused to attend a state banquet to meet with Donald Trump. Not to mention all the anti Semitic happenings lately. As well as a lack of clarity on where he stands on brexit. I just can't vote for those reasons.
