    Sunday shows round-up: Starmer, Benn, Lammy and Cooper on Brexit

    The Andrew Marr Show Keir Starmer expressed many of the same views set out in his Fabians conference speech on Saturday, including that delaying Brexit by extending Article 50 is now inevitable and that Labour’s policy is in its ‘third phase’. He also conceded that any Brexit deal at this stage would “probably” require a backstop. On Theresa May’s deal: “I have said for two years we will faithfully look at any deal that is brought back, which is what we […]

Thanks to the Fabians, to Andrew and his team, for inviting me here today, and particularly to Ivana for that kind introduction. I’d also like to add my thanks to Kate Green, your outgoing Chair, who has done a stellar job. And thanks too to the Foundation for European Progressive Studies which has worked in Partnership with the Fabians to organise this conference today. We are cursed, I’m afraid, to live in interesting times. These are not, however, […]

    “A public vote has to be an option for Labour” – Keir Starmer’s Brexit speech at Fabian conference

    I want to start by welcoming everyone to my constituency of Holborn and St Pancras… And by thanking Ivana, Andrew and all Fabians staff for today’s conference. To put it mildly, it’s well timed. We often say that nobody can foresee how and when crunch moments will come in the Brexit process. But given the Fabians chose today to hold a conference called “Brexit and Beyond”, they must know something the rest of us don’t. I was delighted to write […]

    To have an ethical foreign policy, Labour must lead renewal of Responsibility to Protect

    Hundreds of thousands of people were shockingly killed in the genocides that engulfed Rwanda and parts of Bosnia in the 1990s. The horrors that took place compelled the world in pledging “never again”. Yet two decades later, history has repeated itself in Syria. Conflict there has completely devastated the country, with over half a million deaths and dozens of chemical weapons attacks. Some 13 million people have also been displaced and years of fighting led to a global refugee crisis on a […]
