Op-Ed: The political and ruling class of the UK are pushing for the country to remain a part of the European Union.
You may or may not agree with that position but you must have realised that is the result they want.
At its annual conference in September 2015 the Labour Party decided its official EU referendum position was to support the remain in Europe camp.
Jeremy Corbyn was a newly elected party leader in September 2015 and has been out and about around the country making his case for the UK to stay a part of the European Union and then work to reform that institution.
He has faced a barrage or criticism almost for waking up and breathing each day from the moment he became the new Labour Party leader.
This week he even faced Twitter abuse from Simply Red front man Mick Hucknall, a confirmed Blairite, who called him a coward for allegedly staying out of the EU debate.
Mr Hucknall has now set his tweets to protected as presumably he experienced the might of Twitter in angry response.
Within the party backstabbers lurk planning some future coup when they hope to take back the Labour Party and water down any left wing politics.
PMQs each Wednesday lunchtime Mr Corbyn has faced a torrent of abuse from a smug-faced David Cameron but we tuned in today and were somewhat surprised.
It was an almost civil or is that civilised political PMQs but then we remembered Cameron currently needs Corbyn.
No surprise perhaps then that Jeremy Corbyn will now face a Q and A. Sky news is reporting "EU Vote: Corbyn To Face Live Sky News Audience."
That event will take place June 20.
So close to the actual voting the cynic in me wonders if it is another trap to lay the blame.
Tuesday Farage and Cameron took part in a so-called debate that was anything but. It was at best a Q and A of two halves with neither man sharing the same stage at any point.
Catching that session briefly I noted Cameron's dumbed down accent.
A few weeks ago he was verbally attacking Corbyn in the House of Commons and his plummy Etonian voice rose to the fore.
Not on Tuesday night however when he ran true to talking to the plebs form and used words like 'wanna' instead of 'want to'.
Chancellor George Osborne often does this. He tempers his vocabulary and accent to suit the crowd.
That is such a patronising modus operandi.
When it come to the EU referendum some are looking to blame Mr Corbyn if we leave the EU and pull up the drawbridge.
Yes they like to blame him if the sun does not shine too.
But in the end it is the likes of Nigel Farage and David Cameron who will be to blame. They both pushed for an EU referendum for their own reasons.
Cameron is also one reason Corbyn will not share a platform with the IN campaign.
Cameron used Labour leader Ed Miliband shamelessly in the Scottish independence referendum and then hung him out to dry.
Wednesday with reports of a 48-hour registration deadline extension, a series of non-eligible foreign residents incorrectly receiving ballot cards to vote and reports that MPs may ignore a BRexit vote the UK is in danger of becoming a laughing stock.
Allegations of tory election expenses overspending in 2015 still hang over British politics casting doubts over our very democracy.
But for this writer suspicions that other political parties are pretty quiet on that perhaps indicates they have all broken those rules and more than once.
Can Mr Corbyn save the EU day? Then again, why should he?
If we leave or stay it should be down to the will of the people or why have we spent so much money on a referendum.
If post EU referendum the proverbial hits the fan it must surely plaster David Cameron and the Tories first?
[A friend in London, a German lady, received a voting card along with a government IN campaign leaflet]
Will MPs let the United Kingdom exit the European Union
Jeremy Corbyn damned if he does and damned if he does not
Is extending voter registration deadline even legal?
