UK labour leader calls for anarchy if Brexit happens

Senior Labour politician Andy Burnham has called for violent anarchy on the streets of Britain if a ‘no-deal’ Brexit happens.

Burnham, the Mayor of Greater Manchester and former Labour Cabinet Minister, acknowledged that a second referendum would “further erode trust in Parliament and politicians”. reports: Yet he added: “There is always a price that comes with that, but in the end that price is worth paying to stop the catastrophic damage to jobs that would come with a ‘No Deal’ Brexit.”

In a speech in Westminster, the mayor made it clear he was adopting this position despite having a clear understanding of the impact it could have on society.

“I have to think seriously about what a second vote would mean on the streets of Greater Manchester,” he said.

“If we thought the first was bad, the second would be a whole lot worse. It won’t heal divisions but widen them. It would be angrier [and] create social unrest.”

Burnham reiterated his belief that the possibility of “real unrest” was a price worth paying to prevent a clean Brexit in an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I have real concerns about a second vote. It would cause real unrest on the streets of Greater Manchester,” he confessed.

“But there is something worse than having another vote and that is crashing out of the European Union without a deal,” he insisted.

Burnham also suggested that a second referendum would “open up a massive opportunity for the populist far-right in the way we are seeing elsewhere in Europe and the USA.”

“In fact, it is possible the so-called alt-right are driving this ‘No Deal’ agenda to set up the clash in our communities from which they think they can profit,” he claimed — although he did not provide any evidence of such a conspiracy.

The Mayor also proposed begging the European Union to postpone the UK’s departure deadline if a deal is not struck, in order to allow further negotiations.

  3. The govt calls for anarchy if the public get what they want and voted for??? In what looney tune world does that even make sense? Is the govt announcing they have planned multiple false flag attacks on the public as retaliation? Time to start building gallows for the politicians.

  4. Why aren’t these people being charged with inciting public crimes and disorder. Why is the media promoting these threats. Why no real investigation into public disorder and political riots. These are basically threats against the people if they use their free will for their own benefit.
