For a woman of Jo's age to leave the legacy in the Palace of Westminster and beyond, in such a short space of time, is what legends are truly made of. Coming into Portcullis House this morning and looking at the screens dotted around which inform us of the business of the day, has such a different meaning today.
Although some countries have legislated against discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation in goods and services, this isn't universal across member's states. That's why it is important for UK influence to remain at the heart of the single market, to facilitate further anti-discrimination measures. It makes no sense for LGBT people to have protection at home, but subject to discrimination elsewhere in the single market. Retreating with a Brexit vote isn't going to change that unsatisfactory position.
After years of campaigning, the European Union has agreed an outline deal to combat the unchecked trade in natural resources, which fuels some of the world's most brutal conflicts, underwriting child labour, sexual violence and modern slavery.
Jo Cox, who has been taken from us so cruelly, was a brilliant politician, tireless campaigner for social justice and friend to all who knew her. Jo lit up any room she walked into, with her warmth, wit and wisdom. The Labour Party has lost one of our brightest and one of our best.Jo's Labour family is shocked to the core that such a vibrant, dedicated, warm and exuberant woman can be snatched from us in an instant. Jo fizzed with life, energy, and compassion. Jo's husband Brendan has urged us all to fight against the hatred that killed her. I know that he and their children will have all the love and support that our party, and our country, can give as they face a future without the wife and mother they loved.
Jo Cox was a heroine of multiculturalism. A woman who stood up for refugees, the brutalised and displaced people of Syria. But most importantly she stood against hate. So yes, we still can use the word great today. But not for our much maligned country, but for Jo - a beacon of hope.
Well-liked by MPs from all parties across the House, Jo Cox's proud track record working for Oxfam in the field of overseas aid and development ensured she was highly respected for her expertise... When asked which three words her best friend would use to describe her, she said, simply: "Passionate, compassionate and loyal." She was undoubtedly all three.
Downing Street is most likely to delay further Killing the goose Whilst the UK media is relishing the drama over Britain's leaving the EU, speculatio...
Labour is calling for a vote to remain in Europe at next week's referendum because we believe staying in the European Union offers our people a better future in terms of jobs, investment, rights at work and environmental protection.
Taken together, the chances for each one of these eight conditions for Brexit's success are not great. The chances of some subset of them happening are very slim. The chances of all of them happening are as close to zero as you can get.
Vote Leave suggestions that life would be better if Britain votes to leave the EU is unfounded nonsense, and a hardline Tory-led Brexit could never live up to the presumptive promises they are currently making.
I wasn't sure how to approach the news that 'Master of Lies' Jean-Claude Juncker has been drafted in by David 'Scourge of Pensioners' Cameron to make a major intervention in the referendum campaign next week. Why would the Prime Minister call in his boss, the President of the European Commission, a man with a less than exemplary reputation?
Jeremy Corbyn, vice-president of CND, must surely have spent much of his political life preparing for a fight over Trident. It would be understandable for him to think the moment for that fight has come. To save his party, he may have to think again.
Proponents of UBI argue that it provides an economic safety net for everyone, allowing individuals to work how and when they want to. A modern reform of the ageing welfare state. A proposal fit for the future of work. Much like the Cost of Living Crisis, I think we need to consider these issues with a longer time frame in mind.
Britain faces its most important week since the end of the Second World War. For generations to come people will look back at the decision we make in the EU referendum. Its impact will be felt over decades, not just years. Given the momentous nature of the choice before people, I'm angry at the false promises being made by Leave campaigners. We know it is Labour voters who will decide this referendum. And it is precisely those people who are being knowingly misled with unrealistic and unfunded promises.
If you're planning to vote remain, please take a moment to read this article. It may help you reconsider the most important political decision of your life. Most people I've spoken to say they're planning to vote leave, but of the few who say they'll vote remain, these have been the most common reasons...
Is Jeremy Corbyn such an inept politician that after months of campaigning in the EU referendum it still feels like he doesn't give a damn about remaining inside the European Union, even if he occasionally whispers that he does? Or would it suit him and his Socialist cabal, currently in control of the Labour Party, for the Brexiteers to drag Britain back to an era of politics they understand?
