Jeremy Corbyn and his EU stance?

A video has surfaced on YouTube and other social media showing Jeremy Corbyn arguing for brexit against liz kendal at a labour leadership debate for sky TV.

Jeremy has long been Eurosceptic, but since becoming labour leader several months back his lifelong view has oddly changed overnight.

What happened? Did the unions threaten him? Did he spy a potential lucrative EU pension deal?

    Jeremy faces a massive revolt from the New Labour crowd if he dares to declare where he truly stands.

    HE KNOWS: there has been huge downward pressures on middle and working class wages since New Labour made it easy for huge rich corporations to bring in cheap EU labour.

    HE KNOWS: about the massive rise in rents, the packed GP surgeries, the over-burdened schools, the hospitals bursting at the seams, all caused by a massive increase in EU migrants and restrictive EU regulation.

    HE KNOWS: about the wealthy elite conspiring together to ruin Greece, to lock out the unions, to drive down salaries and remove workers rights and who are all desperate for us to remain in the EU so they can fatten their wallets and flatten the workers.

    With his mouth, he supports staying in. But his heart is screaming...

    GET OUT, GET OUT. LEAVE AND TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK.

    Similar to Boris, then. Lifelong EU supporter until it became obvious that a Brexit vote would see the end of Cameron and an opportunity for him to become PM. Boris has cynically used this referendum to further his prime ministerial ambitions, and lied repeatedly in the process.

    To be fair on Corbyn, he's been quite clear that the EU needs serious reform, and that 'remain' is a least worst option, rather than having his wholehearted support. It's not so much the unions driving the 'remain' stance, more his MPs and the Labour Party members who elected him.

    Jeremy is a nice guy but he is an atheist

    keeping in the EU means accepting TITP which will take away workers rights and give power to globalists and corporations

    When he became an MP Labour was anti Europe, so it makes you wonder how exactly that generation of MPs woke one day and realised they'd suddenly become pro Europe. Yeah, they've kept v quiet about that one!

    Yeah well the remain side definitely needs more skeptics, some of them are carrying on like the EU is willy wonkas chocolate factory and Brexiters are taking them to the cleaners, any remainer that doesn't start with 'despite the EU being in need of improvment'................is lying to you

    Didn't Cameron change his stance in the same way when he understood the full implications of Brexit for the economy?

    He changed his mind about it, but so what? Isn't anyone allowed to change their mind now? There are benefits for leaving and benefits in staying, no party is completely united over it even..
