I’m impressed with a Paul Mason article in the ‘New Statesman’ in which he suggests that Labour should coalesce around remain and actually have a radical agenda for EU reform.
Hurray for that.
Remain and reform is what so many of us have wished for…
He suggests that reform would be easier if we revoked article 50 – we’d be seen as having viewed the darkest depths – that most did not want, and having encountered that, we have also seen the difficulties that ensue.
But, having encounterd these difficulties, the UK has acquired, necessarily, a mandate for reform.
So we’re prepared to stay but we need reform in order that we silence the Brexiters.
As a large EU economy I think that would hold weight.
It should be a savvy Labour policy.
Actually I fervently hope it will be followed regardless – if only, at the very least, for the sake of future generations.
