A statement from the party leaders on the murder of Lyra McKee:

„We are united in rejecting those responsible for this heinous crime.

„They have no support in the community, must be brought to justice and should disband immediately.

„We reiterate our support for the PSNI, who while carrying out their duties were also the target of last night’s attack. We call on anyone with any information to bring that forward to the police and assist their inquiries.

„This is a time for calm heads.”

Labour MPs in Leave-backing seats should not be tempted into backing May’s deal

Now is a moment of truth for Labour MPs. Theresa May’s decision to go back on her manifesto promises and agree a deal which would tie the UK to EU rules indefinitely but without us having a say in setting those rules has presented them with an open goal. All the signs are that the Labour front bench will oppose the deal. But the stance of the many Labour MPs in Leave-backing constituencies is open to question.

Foster forderte May auf, einen besseren Austrittsvertrag aushandeln.
