Old Warriors

Two old Labour warriors have again expressed their long held views of the EU.

Austin Mitchell tweets   and explains he gave up being an MP because “birthdays caught up with him”. He’s 84.

And Dennis Skinner

writing in September 2017 “I’m the only person in the whole of this #Parliament who’s voted against every treaty of the #EU…As a matter of principle for 47 years I’ve done the same thing. Isn’t that a good thing to be able to say?” It’s 48 years now. Two days ago he wrote T May does Neville Chamberlain. “This morning the British Ambassador in Brussels handed the EU a final Note stating that, unless we heard from them by 11 o’clock that they were prepared at once to allow us to withdraw, a state of Brexit would exist between us”. Olive branch? Wonderful stuff!
