Labour must now focus on the longer term. The referendum was a Tory ruse to deal with splits in their own ranks. They never expected Leave to win and made no plans for it. Labour must hold the Government to account throughout the Brexit negotiations, but we must not to let the Tories misrepresent this as wrecking tactics they can blame for their inevitable failures... In politics you win by owning tomorrow not yesterday. The referendum is over and Brexit is going to happen on terms dictated by the Tory parliamentary majority because Labour lacks the votes to change it. So we should now focus on a more positive vision of what Brexit could be.
Those of us in the Labour party who have been staunchly sceptical of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership from the beginning often stand accused of not taking him or his supporters seriously enough. At Progress, we are keen to rectify this perception, and apply rigorous intellectual scrutiny to the Corbyn project.
When a musician like Madonna jokes about blowing up the White House, it only serves to crowd out the real and substantive criticisms of Trump. When he steps out of line, Trump needs to be challenged with facts and reason, not incoherent wailing or malicious threats. In an age where politicians must be incredibly careful about what they say and how they say it, famous celebrities should take similar care when they preach to us on political issues of which they might only have a limited understanding.
Labour could lose both by-elections this week. Such an event would send political shockwaves throughout the country with new questions raised about Mr Corbyn's leadership and his lack of political direction or ideological coherence. But it would also generate questions about the future of Labour England.
We really are in a 'through the looking glass' phase of national and international politics with a dangerous growth of 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' dogma. Self styled moderates behaving like the right. Vexed liberals coming over all authoritarian. Reactionary western nationalists having a love-in with long time foe Russia.
By injecting honesty and integrity into our politics we may have a chance of fighting back against the 'fake news', 'post-truth' normalisation that is taking place. Needless to say politics is a dark art, and we'll never have a political order based on complete honesty, however all I'm really talking about here is the need to take responsibility for their own actions.
The uncertainty created by Brexit means that the reliance in recent years on recruitment from the EU is no longer available to shore up the numbers. Our NHS staff cannot keep giving more at the same time that we are giving them less, the Government needs to reinstate bursaries and end pay restraint - we cannot afford not to.
From Gandhi to JFK and Martin Luther King, great men who stood up for our rights as human beings were all assassinated. Today, Jeremy Corbyn is assassinated on a daily basis. It may be the media that has taken the role of the rifle, but it is us that have the power to pull the trigger, or put the weapon down.
This week it was, again, as always, for the rest of time, about Brexit. An historic vote took place in the Commons giving Theresa May the power to trigger Article 50, and Jeremy Corbyn the headache of more resignations. Paul Waugh tells us what it's like being in the same room as Donald Trump, and we hear why Liam Fox isn't happy with HuffPost UK. There's also a tremendous quiz on protest signs written in regional slang. It was baffling.
Does anyone remember that old Panorama episode about Scientology? I'm thinking particularly of the clip in which, having spent the past few months ...
President Trump banning people from certain countries entering the US has robbed millions of people of their individuality. They are no longer separat...
Trailing Theresa May in the polls and disliked by many in his own party, Corbyn desperately needs to change his image for the voters that aren't die-hard Labour supporters...
Jeremy Corbyn wants this government to listen to his concerns regarding "jobs, security, economic rights, justice", yes indeed. Now put the maximum pressure on the government by allowing your MPs to have a free vote on this vital issue that will shape Britain's future for generations to come.
I have tabled amendments to the Article 50 bill, to protect workers' rights in British law from the day we leave, and Keir Starmer and the Labour frontbench have agreed to support them. It's time for Theresa May to either put her money where her mouth is, or admit that her Party has no intention of preserving the rights of working people.
Should Labour, in the final analysis, be seen to have in effect collaborated or at least stood by motionless as the Tories go hell for leather for a Hard Brexit, then its perceived waving through of Article 50 will be interpreted as a colossal act of cynicism, which many of the 48%, and indeed many loyal Labour voters, may not be able to forgive.
One of the most extraordinary of many memorable events of the first few days of President Trump has been the escalation, rather than the diminution, of his battle with the media. These confrontations may be taking place in Washington and may appear so ludicrous that it is tempting to ignore them. But there are key implications for anyone who is contact with the press and TV in the UK, as well as on the other side of the Atlantic.
