It does, but I think there is a real concern of People’s Vote people trying to push their argument too far. I think their approach to bringing Corbyn on-side has reflected a misunderstanding about he conducts himself in the party and, if anything, has decreased the chance of the Labour frontbench being brought around to their side.
There’s something to be said for public pressure, there’s something else for the ardent Remainers doing everything they can to frustrate the push for a General Election that is likely to blow back on them if it is Corbyn’s decision.
Something I find frustrating with some of the media portrayal (and not yourself – I’d agree that I think the time is coming to make a commitment) is that the Labour Party’s position on this has been pretty clear – it is based on the decision made in the September 2018 party conference. Much has been made of Corbyn’s influence on it (and one can argue that he should have taken a more decisive position – but that’s a different argument than one of clarity), but he has stuck to it to an almost dogmatic extent.
I think People’s Vote campaigners have focused on the Westminster bubble (and, thereby, on Corbyn and his team) rather than trying to win the argument among ordinary Labour voters. Polling indicates that party opinion is starting to shift towards Remain more decisively, but I find it deeply frustrating that People’s Vote, no less than Theresa May, are leaving it until the last minute to resolve something that should have been two years in the making.
It does not fill me with confidence about how well they’ll do campaigning for Remain II.
