We are concerned that your article of 8 January, ‘Labour grassroots step up anti-Brexit pressure’ is misleading about grassroots pressure in Labour for changing the party policy.
Only at the end of the piece is it mentioned that far more Labour members support the party’s current policy than oppose it. So the truth is that the majority of the grassroots are not stepping up pressure on Jeremy Corbyn at all, just a minority.
Jeremy Corbyn is providing serious leadership on the issue, ensuring that Labour is relentlessly and very effectively opposing both May’s Brexit deal and a no deal. To date this is not being seriously reported by the Guardian.
