Tory candidate reveals anger at Labour's Brexit 'betrayal' on the doorstep 'day after day'

The Conservative Party’s candidate for Wolverhampton South West, Stuart Anderson, slammed the Labour Party for betraying their voters who voted Leave. Mr Anderson also revealed he has lifelong Labour supporters offering to campaign for him because they feel so strongly about leaving the European Union. The Brexiteer told Express.co.uk that it was his desire to help get Brexit completed which motivated him to get involved in politics. 

Commenting on Labour’s betrayal, Stuart Anderson said: “The last general election in 2017 in the manifesto they said they would honour the result of the referendum.

Mr McDonnell said Mr Corbyn would reiterate the same position he has held regarding Brexit which is negotiating a new deal with the EU and then holding a second referendum within six months.
