    Updated: Labour make gains in council by-elections as Lib Dems lose ground

    Labour gained seats from the Tories and Lib Dems in a series of council by-elections last night.

    David Davis’ Brexit deal puts us on course for a calamitous act of national self-harm

    The entire Brexit project is descending into farce. The government is more vulnerable than ever to attack while Labour is two points ahead in the latest Survation polling and Theresa May’s government is taking an increasingly shambolic approach to departure from the EU.

    Abbott hits back at ITV News over claim she “struggled” through policing interview

    This is the video Diane Abbott published as her row with ITV News escalated after the broadcaster reported she had “struggled again” through an interview on Labour’s policing pledge.

    Once in power Labour must future-proof its policies against Tory advances to bring lasting change for the country’s good

    Politics is cyclical: sometimes your party is in and sometimes your party is out. It is very likely that some time in the future, and perhaps very soon, Labour will be back in power. It is equally likely that, at some point after that long-awaited victory, the Conservatives will get back in power again. And there’s the rub.
