Boris Johnson Accuses Labour For Trying To Rig Second Brexit vote
Ms Long-Bailey told the Today programme:”I think it’s reasonable to ensure Labour’s Rebecca Long-Bailey said it’s right to give the right to vote to EU citizens, since it affects their future. This afternoon Michael Gove doubled down on denying EU citizens the right to vote, and stated Tories have to choose the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn getting Prime Minister’very seriously’. He maintained that the Labour manifesto set out to”fiddle” a second referendum on Brexit. Is true that EU nationals do not vote, haven’t voted, in general elections, and so don’t vote, have never voted in referendums like the Brexit referendum – and we think it could be unfair.
“It would alienate millions who feel disenfranchised and ignored by our political system.” The policy was adopted by Labour – that says it supports a confirmatory vote on leaving the EU – in September. Because you gave the capacity to just two million EU citizens to undo Brexit, biggest practice in our history is overturned.
Boris Johnson has accused Labour of trying to’rig’ another Brexit referendum by allowing EU citizens to vote. “It’s somewhat like a rugby league final, 13 players on Mr Gove said:”There is a basic principle of democratic fairness. It He’s written to Jeremy Corbyn asserting the move will’alienate’ voters. Either side. If one team suddenly said we are going to play with rugby union rather and attract two additional players on the field, that just would not be honest.”
He added that he knows Labour’s debate but that it is”essentially an assault on the basic democratic principle”. In a letter to Mr Corbyn, Mr Johnson asserted to allow EU nationals to vote could produce”bitterness”.
The Prime Minister wrote:”Imagine how people will feel if the That those people have the opportunity to vote over their future, because essentially this isn’t only about the future of folks who were born here, it is about the potential for individuals who contribute to our market and have done for a verylong time.”
Speaking on BBC Radio 4 Today Programme Mr Gove said allowing EU citizens to vote could influence another referendum.
