Jeremy Corbyn receives rapturous reception at biggest Labour conference for years

Share

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn last night avoided a potentially divisive clash over Brexit at Labour's party conference, as disagreements between senior figures and grassroots members threatened to dominate this week's agenda.

John McDonnell, the party's treasury spokesman, said European Union free movement rules make it "difficult to see" how the United Kingdom could stay in the single market while addressing voter concerns about immigration.

Some grass-roots Labour members feel like they've got their party back after the slick, centrist "New Labour" years under former Prime Minister Tony Blair and his successors.

It is the issue that dominates the political and media landscape in Britain, consumes and threatens Theresa May's Tory government but Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party has decided it is not important enough to debate at the party's conference underway in Brighton, England.

"Labour in government will work across departments to counter the effects of deregulation, liberalisation and the weakening of trade union rights and freedoms", she said.

"How can @uklabour not have a full & proper debate on Brexit policy at #Lab17?"

"It used be very suit-orientated", said delegate Andrew Ward, sporting a kilt, a red Labour t-shirt and multiple facial piercings.

Mr. Khan, who has been critical of Mr. Corbyn in the past and backed Owen Smith's leadership challenge a year ago, had not been expected to address the annual gathering.

In TV interviews, both Mr Corbyn and John McDonnell sent out mixed messages about the single market membership, supported by an overwhelming majority of Labour supporters. This year's award specifies the work done by JLM "in engaging and mobilising the Jewish community in support of Labour campaigns", and is, say the JLM leadership, "a testament to the hard work of our 2000+ members and activists across the country".

After months of sticking to a position little different from the Conservative Party's pursuit of a clean break with the EU, Labour changed tack last month by suggesting that, if in power, it would press for remaining in the EU's single market for a transition period to smooth Britain's departure in March 2019. "That is totally and utterly unacceptable", she said.

The opposition Labour Party said on Monday that Britain could stay in a customs union with the European Union for the long term after leaving the bloc should it take power.

The party's ambiguity on Brexit is, in a sense, pragmatic.

"Setting out Labour's vision for Brexit, he will go on to state that the party remains committed to respecting the result of the referendum while "[putting] jobs and the economy first".

The left-of-centre party confounded expectations in June's snap election by gaining an extra three million votes, a ringing endorsement for the anti-austerity programme of its veteran leftist leader.

The new compromise proposal would mean MPs being forced to get nominations of two-thirds of the union branches in their constituency - which often do not have any actual Labour members - and local branches representing two thirds of the constituency Labour party membership. "We stand ready to take charge of the negotiations".
