Confirmation, if it was needed, that Labour is a Brexit supporting party. Problem is a Labour Brexit, just like a Tory Brexit, will hurt Scotland. So if you want to keep Scotland in Europe, and make sure that our voice is heard, vote @theSNP on 23 May. https://t.co/NaHPBN5dM9

NEW: @OwenSmith_MP tells me Labour has more to lose from being vague on Brexit than it has to gain from "pandering to Brexit." He argues that polling shows Remainers deserting the party, and he wishes "the leadership recognised the risk to our vote." pic.twitter.com/V3IHMoFYQS

Labour MPs tweeting out their respective "we have confirmed our commitment to a people's vote" and " we will not back a people's vote" takes looks really odd.
A fudge only works if everyone sits on their hands and pretends. This just looks hopelessly divided.

AVENGERS: “we can undo this catastrophe. It’s gonna be hard, but we have a plan for a time heist. If we all work together”
LABOUR: “now, look, we have to respect the outcome of the catastrophe and work together to build a catastrophe that protects the rights of working people”

In the battle we face today against rise of right wing anti-migrant populism, Labour *should* have taken a side
Its failure to do so is devastating
Young people, free movement & internationalism all abandoned
Labour is now clearly a party of Brexit – & that’s a tragedy https://t.co/mzoeHIV0Vn

After being contacted by The Times today Labour admitted that Hobson's book contains "antisemitic elements" which "Jeremy completely rejects".

“Brexit is no longer a policy. It is a religion and selection is by faith alone. There is only purity and heresy.”

Putin is advising Maduro to hold firm in #Venezuela because it is a foundational principle of #Russia's foreign policy never to allow a dictator overseas to be overthrown by a popular revolt. Putin couldn't care less about Maduro; he just doesn't want Russians getting ideas.

The new emperor takes the throne at a time when Japan faces numerous challenges, including a declining, aging population. Under the country’s postwar Constitution, the emperor has no political power to policy issues directly, but he can set a tone. https://t.co/ZgVgy5ZtUT
