Tom Watson Accused Of "Killing Labour From Within" By Furious Supporter

Tom Watson Accused Of

After the result in the Commons, shadow Brexit spokesman Matthew Pennycook appeared to suggest the party is ready to act, tweeting it is "now time to wholeheartedly get behind efforts to facilitate a new public vote that includes the option of staying in the EU".

McDonnell made the bold claim in an interview on ITV's Peston show, arguing that when May does bring another vote back on her deal, due on or before March 12, then Labour can win on their new European Union referendum amendment, because eurosceptic MPs are "shifting" their positions.

May's climb-down took much of the heat out of a series of votes on Wednesday that could have ripped control of the entire process away from the government.

But there remains no majority in parliament for a second referendum.

Berger left the party last month with six other lawmakers, calling Labour "institutionally anti-Semitic" and criticizing its support for Brexit.

"This is uncomfortable for everyone, but we can not negotiate a successful Brexit unless we are prepared to walk through the door".

'Monkees' Peter Tork dies at 77
The group's broadly comic TV series " The Monkees " (1966-1968) was a short-lasting sensation, but also an Emmy victor . He would go on to join them for major reunion tours about once each decade, beginning in the mid-'80s.

Labour MP Julie Cooper wrote she had "no intention of voting for a second referendum".

British Prime Minister Theresa May had averted a major crisis by giving in to demands from her Cabinet to offer MPs the chance to rule out a no-deal Brexit in the event that her withdrawal agreement was once again rejected by Parliament.

An amendment tabled by Labour's Yvette Cooper, created to pin the PM down by placing her promise in a motion approved by Parliament, was passed by a majority of 482 - with 20 Tory hardliners opposing it.

Just as many are accusing the Prime Minister Theresa May of running out the clock, in order to make passage of her Withdrawal Agreement more likely; running out the clock also works to the advantage of People's Vote campaigners.

All but 20 of the U.K.'s sitting parliamentarians backed a delay of the March 29 Brexit date if the alternative was clearly a no-deal exit.

A delay would increase the chances of a reversal of Brexit, especially as the opposition Labour Party is tilting towards supporting another referendum.

Key Moments Since Jussie Smollett Reported Chicago Attack
Chicago PD refused to comment on the speculation that the attack was a hoax but acknowledged that the investigation has "shifted". TMZ reports the two brothers, who were once suspects, admit to rehearsing the altercation between them and Smollett.

The Labour Party's motion for the United Kingdom to remain part of an EU customs union was defeated by 323 votes to 240 during the session on Wednesday, leading to party leader confirming previously announced plans to push for a public vote on the government's Brexit proposals.

Having said about 80 times over the last two years that the country will definitely leave the European Union on March 29, the prime minister has now opened up the option of extending the Article 50 process until at least the end of June, in what could yet become a major turning point in the Brexit debate.

And there was a furious response from Labour MPs, with deputy leader Tom Watson saying the apology was "not good enough" and issuing a formal request for Mr Williamson's suspension.

"An extension can not take no deal off the table", May said.

Wednesday's votes also saw lawmakers defeat a Labour proposal for a permanent customs union with the EU.

Mr Costa quit his position as an unpaid parliamentary aide in the Scotland Office, despite Home Secretary Sajid Javid saying he supported his proposal and Downing Street making clear that Mrs May does not oppose it. "That is nowhere near enough to offset the Labour MPs who are not on board for whatever reason", said one MP who meant to back any amendment for a second referendum.
