Figures from across the labour movement have given their take on Damian Green’s decision to resign.
Andrew Gwynne, shadow local government secretary and elections chair:
So David Davis gives his resignation letter the same treatment as the fabled Brexit impact studies… pic.twitter.com/kPNH6tv09Y

Alastair Campbell, former communications director for Tony Blair: If Damian Green resigned not because of porn but dishonesty could May now sack Michael Gove and all who promised £350m a week extra for NHS?
Liz Kendall, Leicester West MP: Damian Green’s departure will be picked over for many good reasons – just hope impact on social care is included, as he was leading on Green Paper that could affect lives of millions of people.
Richard Burgon, shadow justice secretary: Arguably the Prime Minister’s main prop of support – de facto Deputy Prime Minister Damian Green – has had to resign. This failing Tory Government has the stench of death about it.
