The Brown report is a smoke-screen to cover Labour’s failure to support a fair voting system

Labour members and the country at large are crying out for fair votes, genuine electoral competition and the end of the moribund two-party system

It’s clear that a large majority support a much closer relationship with the EU

But a ‘Swiss-style’ deal with never be on the table - the EU detests it even for Switzerland!

Historic moment as @[email protected] Clean Air (Human Right) Bill passes the House of Lords. A Conservative MP sponsored the private members bill that government enacted in 1956. If this govt doesn't act then hope other parties include in their manifestos.
