    Voters rejected May’s hard Brexit: Britain should stay in the single market, says Khan

    The mayor of London has today added his voice to calls for Britain to stay in the single market. Sadiq Khan has stepped up his demands in the wake of the electoral disaster for Theresa May, where she saw her commons majority wiped out – a result that has been interpreted by many as a rejection of her hard-Brexit vision.

    I was wrong on Corbyn – and with a united team we can win a general election

    How things have changed. Back in February 2015, I was standing shoulder to shoulder with Jeremy Corbyn during my General Election campaigning in the Nethermayne ward of the South Basildon and East Thurrock constituency. I remember clearly at the time, and long before anyone had used the term “Corbynista”, some Labour Party staffers and members thinking that I was wasting my time by inviting him. Personally I was delighted as a socialist Labour Party candidate standing in a prestigious seat […]
