    John Denham: Going local. That’s how Labour wins key seats in England

    The English Labour Network is going nationwide. We will ask how Labour can reach voters we struggled to win last time: those living in smaller towns, often working class, older, non-graduates, who see themselves as more English than British. The most recent event was in Stoke-on-Trent with Ruth Smeeth MP, Gareth Snell MP and the Labour candidate for Stoke South, Mark McDonald. I was in Stoke for Gareth’s by-election in 2017. Too much Guardian reading led me to expect down-trodden, […]

  • Europe Featured News Theresa May’s deal is dead. How will Labour help break the Brexit deadlock?

    Theresa May’s deal is dead. How will Labour help break the Brexit deadlock?

    Sign up to LabourList’s morning email for everything Labour, every weekday morning. It’s safe to say the results of Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations have not gone down well. With two secretaries of state, two ministers, two PPSs and a party vice-chair gone, the Tory government fell apart yesterday as the Labour Party watched delightedly, popcorn in hand. Responding to her statement on the draft withdrawal agreement and political declaration, Jeremy Corbyn skilfully picked apart the deal using both his own left-wing objections […]

    Angela Eagle: This Brexit mess is of Theresa May’s own making

    Rarely in my 26 years as an MP have I witnessed a British Prime Minister forced into such a humiliating situation by the actions of members of their own party. After finally alighting upon a botched Brexit deal, Theresa May has at last managed to unite a deeply divided country – in horror against the flawed and unacceptable deal she has brokered. With her cabinet crumbling around her and the pound plummeting on foreign exchanges, our hapless Prime Minister attempted […]

    Corbyn confirms support for ‘people’s vote’ campaign remaining on the table

    In an email to Labour Party members this evening, Jeremy Corbyn confirmed that Labour supports the campaign for another public vote on Brexit “remaining on the table” if a general election is not possible. The Labour leader’s message reads: “If we cannot get a General Election, in line with our conference policy, we will support all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote.” Although this is simply a reiteration of existing party policy, ‘people’s vote’ campaigners […]

  • Comment Europe Featured Phil Wilson: All Labour MPs must vote down May’s dodgy deal – and back a people’s vote

    Phil Wilson: All Labour MPs must vote down May’s dodgy deal – and back a people’s vote

    After all the promises, and following two years of negotiation, we can now see what Brexit really means. I am sorry – but not in anyway surprised – to say that the chaos and shambles surrounding this dodgy Brexit only serves to underline the gap between the Brexit that was promised and what is being delivered. This is a Brexit that will diminish the standing of our country. Far from the Brexiteer claim we would “take back control”, the government […]
