It would seem I can vote for the Labour Party once again.

Isn't that nice?

What I meant to say was now we remainers have somewhere to go on the left.

It's been a while coming, but better late than never.

If Labour is serious about remaining in the single market during transition, they will need to amend the repeal bill or defeat it, or at least try, so we'll have to wait and see what they actually do. But I agree the new position is encouraging.

Pidcock has said her own grandmother was a lifelong Tory. Even by the standards of silly season, the manufactured fuss about this has been pathetic and dishonest.

I thought the repeal bill was from the point of leaving, so there's no reason not to stay in single market during transition, except political leaning?

Divorce bill remains sticking point as Brexit negotiations resume

Senior EU diplomats warn progress in this week’s negotiations will be difficult unless UK agrees how to calculate final Brexit bill


EU officials said they were looking forward to hearing the UK team’s legal analysis on the Brexit bill but voiced their frustration. “We are not yet in a situation where lack of time would prevent us from advancing, so far it is a lack of substance,” said one official. (Guardian - my emphasis)


Lack of style, too.

And the general thrust seems to be that the UK wants somebody else to do all the spade work.

Hi tinybgoat. Sorry to only just respond to your question, I was out shopping.

The point about the repeal bill is that the way it's currently drafted it will apply from "exit day". And "exit day" is whatever day the government later decides it wants it to be without any recourse to parliament. So if Labour are serious about opposing May's plans to pull us out of the single market and customs union in March 2019 (or having a meaningful vote on the exit agreement) they will have to start that opposition right now, either by successfully amending the bill so "exit day" can only be designated by a vote in Parliament or by opposing the repeal bill.

So if Labour are ever going to fight hard Brexit, they'll need to start now. Even if they completely fail to stop May's plans, at least they won't be implicated in any of the negative consequences of a Tory hard Brexit, having tried to oppose it. I assume this is why Starmer's clarification of policy has come now, because being all things to all sides will no longer be possible once the repeal bill goes through Parliament as Labour will be forced to take definitive stances on significant issues, like the one above.

Hi Willow

Presumably Labour will indeed be seeking to amend the Repeal Bill as it hits Parliament shortly.

One thing I am interested in is to the extent to which the Lords will cause trouble. If I understand correctly, since there is no formal coalition, the Salisbury Convention does not hold.

Am I right on this?

How and when the Salisbury Convention might apply to a minority government is a good question. I don't really know, but I think it's very clear Theresa May went to the country to get a mandate for her hard Brexit plans and failed to get one, so I can't see how the Salisbury Convention would apply in that case.

I hope so...still, I don't like unwritten and customary procedure

Tories lost their majority and while they've currently the most MPs in Parliament and can justifiably be in leadership, the fact remains they're a minority government, their expensive supply confidantes notwithstanding. Tory government have no mandate for their manifesto or Tory Brexit, as far as I'm concerned.

Isn't specifically about the Salisbury Convention but I thought it interesting.
Mind the dates, this is prior 2015 GE and the expectation was that it'd be a hung Parliament
Quote:
Commons Select Committee
26 March 2015

In a report published today, Thursday 26 March, the Commons Political and Constitutional Reform Committee looks at procedures for forming a government after the General Election and sets out what the public ought to expect in the event of a hung Parliament.

In the next Parliament the Cabinet Manual should be updated to differentiate more clearly the reasons behind the periods of restriction on Government activity before and after an election. This will give greater clarity to the public about what should and what should not happen during these periods.

http://www.parliament.uk/business/commi ... -may-2015/
Was more clarity sorted after the Tory majority in GE 2015? Anyone got a link?
