He's right, in a sense.
He's also wrong to frame it as 'constitutional vs real'.
Well, he's right that climate change and poverty are ultimately far bigger issues than Brexit, but surely even Corbyn isn't so stupid as to fail to see that if Brexit goes ahead it makes combatting poverty exponentially more difficult, and tackling climate change more difficult than it would be if we were still able to act internationally as part of the EU. In fact, the treaty of Lisbon makes explicit provision for both.
He mustn't be let off the hook on this. Brexit is far more than simply "a constitutional issue" , and is unquestionably the number one priority for Labour to deal with right now.
If he helps deliver Brexit, he risks reducing Labour's chances of returning to government even more than he has diminished them already.
Genuinely angry of the sheer fuck-witted stubborn idiocy of this. It's as if he has asked Seumas to write him a speech that will piss off as many people as possible.
