I have just arrived in Brighton where the Labour Party Conference is taking place. Aside from trying to establish exactly whether the party still respects the 2016 referendum result and what its policy on Brexit actually is, at the end of the afternoon I am hoping to support our friends from Labour Leave by attending their conference fringe meeting at 5.45pm in the Sandringham Room of the Queens Hotel, 1-3 Kings Road, Brighton. It is outside the secure zone, so even those without a conference pass should be able to access the event, which is due to be chaired by John Mills and addressed by Kate Hoey, Graham Stringer, Paul Embery and Brendan Chilton.
For those seeking to understand the Labour position on Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn’s interview on The Andrew Marr Show yesterday didn’t shed a great deal of light: by all accounts he refused on nine separate occasions during the course of the interview to say if Labour would support Brexit even if they were in government and had negotiated a new deal with the EU. Watch it for yourself here.
