THE White Van Man mocked by Emily Thornberry for draping his house in St George’s flags has warned today that Labour would be buried for good if she is elected Labour leader.
In an interview with The Sun, White Van Man Dan Ware said it would be final confirmation that Labour is now “the party that sneers at working class people rather than represents them”.
He predicted that the arch-Remainer – one of the architects behind Labour’s move to back a second referendum – would drive the party into obscurity if the party’s members choose her as Jeremy Corbyn’s successor.
He warned: “The Labour party would be non-existent after a few years under her. This woman just loves the sound of her own voice who spits her dummy out when she doesn’t get her own way.”
Ms Thornberry, who is one of the declared candidates in the race to replace Mr Corbyn as leader, was forced to quit Labour’s frontbench five years ago for posting a picture mocking Dan’s house.
The patriotic dad of three, 42, proudly displayed his three England flags on the front of his house – and Ms Thornberry took a picture of his white transit van in front of it with the sneering caption “Image from Rochester” when she visited the Kent constituency during a by-election in 2014.
Speaking to The Sun last night, Dan branded her “Corbyn in a dress,” adding: “She would be Tory party’s ideal candidate because she would drive Labour into obscurity.”
Explaining why she would be the worst pick of the bunch for Labour leader, he said: “She’s out of touch with ordinary working class people. When I see or hear her on TV or radio she has no interest in other people’s views, she’s one of the ‘I’m right as I am intellectually superior brigade’ type of hopeless MPs.”
Dan added: “Of course you’d get the delusional followers of her, but overall I don’t think it would do her or the Labour party much cop.
“Surely even the most wrought Labour followers see it as a bad move. I guarantee she’d lose votes.
“I’m not saying they’d jump ship to the Conservatives. But she won’t do her party any favours at all.”
