Labour Brexit Chaos: Starmer Backs Staying in Customs Union per Guido Fawkes

Guido Fawkes reports

'Last week Corbyn and McDonnell said Labour policy was to leave the single market. Today on Marr their Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer suggested Britain should stay inside in some way. Corbyn and McDonnell have backed leaving the customs union. Today Starmer said Britain should stay in. Is Labour's Brexit spokesman freelancing? Labour have been in complete chaos on Brexit all week.'

Not surprisingly the BBC are not reporting on this policy chaos. After all the BBC's role is to get a Labour government elected and anything that might stop that happening is to be avoided. Imagine that a top Conservative politician said something that was at odds with government policy, the BBC would be headlining this and screeching about Conservative splits.

Once you realise that the BBC is institutionally pro EU and pro the Labour Party their coverage of British politics makes much more sense.
