'The grown ups', Britain's Labour, ready to lead Brexit talks

'The grown ups', Britain's Labour, ready to lead Brexit talks”

Ms Dugdale's comments come as Labour divisions over Europe erupted at the party's conference in Brighton.

Labour's London mayor, Sadiq Khan, said he wanted the United Kingdom to stay in the single market after Brexit.

The decision sparked fury from Europhile MPs on Sunday evening.

Jonathan Reynolds, the shadow City minister, also questioned the vote, calling it "a unusual decision".

"For me and many others, that means committing to full and permanent membership of the single market and customs union". After the topic was not selected, Alexander tweeted that she was "gobsmacked" and said the decision would make the party "a laughing stock".

Former Cabinet minister Lord Hain claimed there had been "rigging" of the process adding: "So much for "democratising party".

"But the way we organise conference now, the delegates themselves, no longer the leadership, decide on what motions they'll debate, and that's what the delegates have done". A natural eurosceptic, Corbyn told the earlier: "I would also say that we need to look very carefully at the terms of any trade relationship because at the moment we're part of the single market, obviously".

"I sometimes think people are ignorant", he said, adding that it was his job to educate them.

He suggested that European Union rules could have prevented him as prime minister from intervening to prop up Britain's steel industry during its recent crisis, and would block a future Labour government from investing in key industries.

"Labour are now the grown-ups in the room", Starmer will say to hundreds of Labour supporters on Monday, according to excerpts of his speech.

Sir Keir has previously said that under a Labour government Britain would remain in both the single market and customs union for a transitional period of two to four years after the official Brexit date in 2019. "I think you've got this wrong", he said.

Speaking at an event organized by the Guardian newspaper at the annual conference of his opposition Labour Party, the mayor, who is the first Muslim to run a major western city, said he was outraged by a suggestion, during Trump's election campaign, that the future US president would make an exception for Khan on his proposed ban on Muslims travelling to the U.S.

A series of rule changes are expected to be passed to limit the influence of more centrist MPs, while members of the Momentum campaign group are set to flood the hall and fringe events.
