NIGEL Farage has vowed to cripple Labour by targeting its Brexit voters after a bitter clash with the party’s deputy leader.
Tom Watson blasted the anti-EU campaigner and his new Brexit Party for being on the “far right” yesterday.The outburst came as he accused his boss Jeremy Corbyn of being “mealy mouthed” and “sitting on the fence” over its support for a second Brexit referendum.
Labour must offer a People’s Vote to defeat Mr Farage’s “backward-looking brand of politics that offers no solutions”, Mr Watson insisted in a withering attack on the hard left Opposition boss in the Observer.
In a bid to hold his bitterly divided party together, Mr Corbyn has insisted a new nationwide poll is only an emergency final option to halt a hard Brexit.
But angry Mr Farage hit back to accuse Labour’s deputy chief of having “broken his promises to the people”.
