Jeremy Corbyn ‚will TODAY back move for Labour to change Brexit policy and support a second referendum‘

A senior Labour source told The Times that Mr Corbyn was supporting the policy change.

The new policy paper has been written by Andrew Fisher, Mr Corbyn’s head of policy, and suggests a second referendum on any deal negotiated with Brussels.

As it stands Labour currently is asking the government for a custom’s union or a general election.

EXCL Sir Keir Starmer calls for Labour to back Remain in new EU referendum

He said: „In the aftermath of the local elections and particularly the EU elections, there are many in the Labour party who feel we need to be very clear about a second referendum and about making the case for Remain.

„That’s certainly what I’m advocating, discussions are going on at the moment, I hope we can resolve it pretty soon, and that will be a material step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned.“

Even if the next Tory leader keeps no deal on the table, Labour must not block Brexit

Labour MPs need to take a view, knowing where we are now, on both what is best for the country and what is most likely to hold together the party’s vital coalition of support between mostly Remain-orientated liberal-minded middle-class people and the largely Leave-leaning industrial working-class voters who have long been Labour’s electoral bedrock. Maybe reconsidering no deal would be the right thing for Labour MPs to consider on both counts.

Labour lost 10,000 votes in Peterborough. It has lost Scotland. It is losing in its old industrial heartlands. This is a party in serious crisis. It is becoming little more than the plaything of the London-based woke bourgeoisie, says Brendan O’Neill

Der Fall „Curveball“: Wie ein BND-Informant den Irak-Krieg auslöste

(28.8.2011)

Diese bis heute verbreitete Darstellung ist unangenehm für die Bundesrepublik. Deutschland steht da als ein Land, das ein Doppelspiel betrieben hat: nach außen den Pazifisten geben – und hintenherum über seinen Geheimdienst einen entscheidenden Grund für die militärische Intervention liefern. Der Bundesnachrichtendienst nahm die Vorwürfe schweigend hin.

The strange death of Labour Britain

One of the most striking but neglected outcomes of the European election last week was the complete collapse of the Labour Party in traditional Labour territory. From Ashfield to Redcar, Merthyr Tydfil to Middlesbrough, Barnsley to Bolsover, most of Britain’s working-class and pro-Brexit areas abandoned the traditional defender of the working class. Instead, they put their tick next to Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, a party only launched six weeks earlier.

DAN HODGES: Is Labour about to declare itself the party of the smug metropolitan elite?

Someone needs to wake up and recognise that fact. Labour is preparing to abandon the North. It’s preparing to abandon millions of supporters who have helped sustain the party over generations.

And it’s about to create a political vacuum that will see what’s left of a once-proud party implode.

May and Corbyn are now the most unpopular PM and opposition leader duo of all time

Their combined approval rating is now at a disastrous -96 according to the latest figures from Ipsos MORI from earlier this month. A Telegraph analysis has shown that this is the lowest combined score ever recorded by the pollster, well clear of the -89 posted by Margaret Thatcher and Michael Foot in December of 1981.

‚EU won’t change one dot or comma‘: Nigel Farage declares it is ‚absolute rubbish‘ to suggest new Tory PM could renegotiate May’s Brexit deal as he blasts Jeremy Hunt’s No Deal u-turn

On Fox News last night, Mr Farage vowed: ‚If we do not leave the European Union on October 31, I will lead the Brexit Party after that into the next general election and we will sweep away parties that have dominated British politics for over 100 years.‘

Outside the M25…. Brexit Party to the left of them. Brexit Party to right of them. Brexit Party to the front of them. Into the valley of death rode the Labour Party.

Labour now looks set to back a second referendum, with the option to remain and Labour would campaign to remain. This is suicidal- but hey, London and Brighton will be happy. Labour starting down the path of other left parties- abandoning the core. Its a perilous route.

Corbyn backs referendum on Brexit deal after voter exodus

The Labour leader said he was “listening very carefully” to both sides of the debate after the party fell behind the Liberal Democrats and also lost ground to the Greens.

Labour’s preference would be a general election but any Brexit deal “has to be put to a public vote”, he said. Several Labour sources noted this was a shift from his previous position that a second referendum was being kept as an option on the table to stop a damaging Tory Brexit.

This isn’t about Brexit. Backing remain now would wreck Labour

Trying to overturn the referendum result would alienate voters who trust us and end all chance of winning a general election

Euro Elections – Labour’s choice: pander to the siren calls of its cosmopolitan patricians, or trust the euro-sceptical plebs. It’s a choice between elitism or democracy; between the London centric chattering classes or the Labour heartlands; between electoral oblivion or power.
