Jeremy Corbyn said an election or referendum is now the “only way out” of the Brexit crisis following mounting pressure on the UK Labour leader to back a public vote.Mr Corbyn said that going “back to the people” was now the only option when faced with the prospect of a no-deal Brexit and an incoming Tory prime minister “with no mandate”. The Labour leader has been under intense pressure to explicitly back a referendum on Brexit after the European elections saw his party suffer heavy losses. Divisions within the party were further exposed by the decision to expel Alastair Campbell, one of the architects of New Labour, for voting for the Liberal Democrats in protest at his own party’s Brexit policy.Labour has sought to appeal to both Leave voters in its northern seats and Remainers in London and other cities, but lost half its MEPs and took just a 14% vote share as support switched to the clear alternatives offered by the Brexit Party and pro-EU … [Read more...] about Corbyn: Public vote is only way out of Brexit crisis
Voters across the UK have delivered a hammer blow to both Labour and the Conservatives in the European elections. They punished the Tories for failing to deliver Brexit - and punished Labour for failing to make it clear whether it backs Brexit or not. The Brexit Party, led by Nigel Farage, was celebrating after topping the poll, winning more seats and more votes than any other party. Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats appeared to have come second, pushing Labour into third place, as results continued to come in. The Green Party also made gains in many parts of the country. With most votes counted, the national results showed the Brexit Party on 32%, with Liberal Democrats on 20% of the vote. Labour was in third place with 14%, and the Greens had 12%. Conservatives had 9% of the vote, while Change UK had 3% and UKIP and 3%. The SNP, which only stood candidates in Scotland, had 3%. It meant the two major parties, Tories and Labour, got only 23% of the vote between them. The results sparked … [Read more...] about Voters reject Labour and Conservatives in European elections
The number of young people starting apprenticeships has fallen dramatically since the Government introduced a new scheme designed to get the numbers up. Official figures show the North East has suffered the worst fall of any region. The number of people starting apprenticeships fell from 34,000 in 2016-17 to 23,000 in 2017-18, a cut of 33%. And a new report by the House of Commons Committee of Public Accounts warned: “The Department for Education has failed to make the progress that it predicted when it reformed the apprenticeships programme.” Apprenticeships are jobs that combine work with training, and employers have called for an increase in apprenticeships because they need workers with technical skills which are not traditionally taught at universities. But there has also been concern about a significant fall in employers’ investment in training over recent decades. The Government responded by making larger firms pay an apprenticeship levy. It meant … [Read more...] about Concern over major fall in number of apprenticeships
