Is that supposed to be an argument, Brexit campaigners are 'soft on crime', Labour careerist Jonathon Reynolds makes a fool of himself using a rehashed Tony Blair comment to scare people into voting to remain part of the EU, someone should add Reynolds name to momentum’s list for removal
The Labour MP for Stalybridge and Hyde is Jonathan Reynolds, I have never heard of him until today.
But in my defence, there are lots of people in politics not worth listening to because most are like battery hens producing a set product of ideas already worked out for them or making up rubbish.
Reynold’s says that Brexit campaigners are "soft on crime and soft on the causes of crime".
9If you don’t recognise the quote, it’s from the Tony Blair era, a variation on ‘tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime’, this was the Labour soundbite and policy lite to win over people that they had the grip on crime.
Germany is in the European Union, I know you will already know, if being in Europe is so wonderful, can Reynolds explain:
I will stop there because I could go on and on and on.
Labour's Jonathan Reynolds said leaving the EU would compromise Europe-wide co-operation that allows Britain to track down serious criminals like paedophiles more effectively.
This is dangerous rubbish, it is scaremongering and it shows that Reynolds seems to have a shaky grasp on reality.
Can you imagine a German Police Chief saying, ‘Britain’s might not buy BMW’s so I will not pass on information about serious criminals’?
European co-operation will continue, why you may ask, because it is in everyone’s national security interest.
In politics, if you want to make a name for yourself, best to do with big ideas, being a statesman, not by being the village idiot.
For Stalybridge and Hyde MP to claim campaigners to leave the union want to end such partnership with other EU countries is laughable.
Joining and replying for the Government, Attorney General Jeremy Wright said there was a "considerable advantage" in Britain remaining in the EU and being part of justice measures such as the European Arrest Warrant.
And post #Brexit, the EU will want that considerable advantage to continue, this seems to be a theme on the Remain, cry wolf, loud, long and often.
I would to Jonathan Reynolds, go learn politics or get educated or get some integrity, he is coming across as a loon.
During law officers' questions, Reynolds said:
"I always remember the first piece of European legislation that I sat on a delegated Bill committee for was, I believe, a regulation that enabled us to track paedophiles more easily across different European countries. Frankly, why anybody would wish to end that kind of co-operation between European countries is beyond me. Would you agree with me that the Brexit campaign is soft on crime and soft on the causes of crime?"
Is there something which tracks paedophiles?
It is called a passport.
Mr Wright replied:
"I have great respect for those who argue for a British exit from the European Union but I'm afraid on this I believe they are wrong. And for the reasons that you give there is considerable advantage to Britain and to British citizens in being part of the European Arrest Warrant."
With slightly less respect, if this best that Jonathan Reynolds can come up with I sincerely hope that the Jeremy Corbyn fan club called momentum stick his name on the list for removal from public office via a campaign for de-selection.
Perhaps an extended period of unemployment and being unemployable would do the Stalybridge and Hyde the world of good; he could then at least go online and see how the world works.
It is precisely the European attitude to crime that will motivate many people to vote for #Brexit.
Do we want to import rape, robbery, terrorism and, murder onto the shores of Britain?
If anyone is ‘soft’, it’s Jonathan Reynolds, soft in the head; he is just another Labour Party careerist!
On his wiki, it is said that Reynolds has a wife and three kids, maybe he should read this:
I would like his thoughts on sexual emergencies.
