Why shouldn't the UK public be allowed to accept or reject Boris Johnson's deal with the EU as the UK voters never voted for Boris Johnson's deal with the EU?

Fair enough. So let Labour stop blocking a general election on it.

A general election will not determine  whether UK voters support or oppose an unknown future deal between the UK and EU. The only way to determine if UK voters support or oppose a EU-UK deal is to have a referendum on that specific deal after it has been agreed upon.

'Deeply Damaging': Anger as Boris Johnson Plans 'Anti-BDS' Law

https://t.co/V99nNdKuHz

"His message, posted in a video on the Conservative Friends of Israel lobby group's Twitter feed has stirred concerns. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quick to congratulate Johnson, calling his recent win a 'crushing victory in the fight against anti-Semitism' - apparently a reference to allegations of anti-Jewish racism within the opposition Labour Party..."

Austria Confirms OPCW Report on Skripal Faking by the British - Vienna Exposes FT Lies and Cover-Up

https://johnhelmer.org/austria-confirms-opcw-report-on-skripal-faking-by...

"Austria officially confirmed this week that the British Government's allegation that NOVICHOK, a Russian chemical warfare agent, was used in England by GRU, the Russian military intelligence services, in March 2018, was a British invention. Investigations in Vienna by four Austrian government ministries, the BVT intelligence agency, and by Austrian prosecutors have revealed that secret OPCW reports on the blood testing of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, copies of which were transferred to the Austrian government, did not reveal a Russian-made nerve agent..."

And remember when the Canadian parliament unanimously supported expelling Russian consular staff without evidence but simply on UK's 'highly likely' accusations? Notice how our msm hasn't even bothered to ask obvious and fundamental questions since, like  just where are the Skripals?

Labour opposes rise in corporation tax in Autumn Budget

Keir Starmer’s spokesman has rejected mooted Tory plans for a rise in fuel duty, corporation tax and capital gains tax in the budget.

The Labour leader’s spokesman told lobby journalists this afternoon that it is “absolutely the wrong time to be talking about tax rises”.

The comments come as newspapers report that “Treasury officials are drawing up plans for a £30bn tax raid on the wealthy, businesses, pensions and foreign aid — to plug a hole in the nation’s finances caused by the coronavirus crisis.”

The Times reports that Rishi Sunak, the chancellor, is considering a proposal to increase corporation tax from 19% to 24% in the November budget, a move that would raise £12bn next year, alongside a hike capital gains tax.

Other papers noted that the 10-year freeze on fuel duty – which climate campaigners say is a catastrophe for the environment – could also be finally increasing. But No 10 sources have scrambled to deny the claims. As Politico reported today: “The policy does not appear to have survived 24 hours after appearing on the front page of Tuesday’s Sun“.

Labour backed a rise in corporation tax in its 2019 manifesto. as did Keir Starmer during his leadership campaign. Starmer also backed a Green New Deal in his campaign.

However, speaking to journalists, Starmer’s spokesman said the government should not be “floating ideas for new tax rises” amid an economic crisis.

This includes 45% of those in seats the Conservatives gained at the last election. When we asked those who say they have a more positive view of Labour party why that was, common responses included the change in leadership and Starmer being a better, competent and credible leader, and labour’s policies being more realistic.

So it sounds like the Tories are proposing some form of wealth taxes with Labour opposed. Am I reading this correctly?

A Labour Party that opposes tax rises can't do anything distinguishable from a Tory government.  And the voters never wanted Labour to be a "centre ground" party again.

If Labour runs the next election on a non-left wing platform, nobody would even want it to win-and no one would notice if it did.
