Jeremy Corbyn quotes

Nov 10 2017

The foreign secretary has been damaging Britain’s standing in the world for 16 months, and has now put Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s future liberty under threat. Theresa May should never have appointed someone as Britain’s top diplomat who had accused Barack Obama of being anti-British because he’s “part-Kenyan”, and notoriously wrote about “flag-waving piccaninnies”.feedback

Nov 10 2017

I value the day-to-day relationship we have with the CBI, as does John McDonnell, and others in my team. And I look forward to working with all of you in the future, whenever the general election comes, and we, I hope, are in government, to continue working with you.feedback

Nov 10 2017

Yes, I was aware that he had been reprimanded and I was also made aware that that was the end of the matter. He had been reprimanded, the case had been closed. I thought it was reasonable to appoint him, albeit for a very short time, to shadow cabinet.feedback

Nov 09 2017

He was, as you know, suspended last week and this tragedy happened a few days later. An inquest now follows, inquiries now follow and we will have to await the outcome of those. It would be not right for any further speculation by me or anybody else to take place on the circumstances surrounding it.feedback

Nov 07 2017

This is terrible and deeply shocking news. My thoughts and profound sympathy are with Carl's family, friends and colleagues.feedback

Nov 06 2017

We've agreed we will establish a group of representatives of the parties and of the staff ... in this building and we will work out necessary procedures.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Anyone that is putting money into tax havens in order to avoid taxation in Britain – and obviously investigations have to take place – should do two things: not just apologise for it, but also recognise what it does to our society.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Abuse, sexism and misogyny... is widespread in our schools and universities, in our businesses and workplaces, in our newspapers and on our TV screens. It is all around us. That must change, and business has an essential role to play. All of us, all of you, must take a good hard look at ourselves.feedback

Nov 06 2017

We simply have to challenge the culture that there is something clever about avoiding taxation. Taxation is what gives us ambulances.feedback

Nov 06 2017

We all have the responsibility to pay for it. It undermines everyone of us here, who pay our taxes properly and diligently, we are undermined by this kind of evasion. It must stop.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Like you, I want the certainty of the customs union and the single market.feedback

Nov 06 2017

We are talking about tens of billions that are effectively being leached from our vital public services by a super-rich elite that holds the taxation system and the rest of us in contempt. Anyone who puts money into a tax haven to avoid paying tax should acknowledge the damage it does to society.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Trade union representation is a vital mechanism for strengthening effective action and protection against sexual and other forms of harassment and abuse at work, and the problems in achieving effective trade union representation and recognition in parliament have made that more difficult. In addition, I believe the relevant trade unions should be full parties to further discussions and decisions on changes to house policy in relation to the rights, protection and treatment of staff.feedback

Nov 06 2017

We believe it is necessary to introduce a minimum standard training programme for MPs following each general election in best practice employment standards and management of their parliamentary offices.feedback

Nov 05 2017

He has been suspended from party membership, which is a decision I took immediately I heard about the later revelations.feedback

Nov 05 2017

Well, it has been reopened and, obviously, there will now be an investigation taking place on this and that's ongoing. I made a decision to put him into the shadow cabinet for a short time and I thought that was the right thing to do. And now the case has been reopened and it will be looked at again.feedback

Nov 05 2017

When it comes to paying taxes, does the prime minister think it is acceptable that there is one rule for the super-rich and another for the rest of us?feedback

Nov 01 2017

My thoughts and solidarity are with those affected, their families & emergency services.feedback

Nov 01 2017

On the question of the sex harassment allegations that the prime minister quite rightly referred to, just to put on the record I am happy to meet with the prime minister and all party leaders to discuss this. We need better protections for all in this house. This house must involve workplace trade unions in that. But it's also incumbent on all parties to have robust procedures in place to protect and support victims of sexual abuse and harassment.feedback

Nov 01 2017

Nine hundred and fifty-seven business jets in the Isle of Man seems a bit excessive for any island anywhere.feedback

Oct 29 2017

The prime minister has announced this morning that she supports, which I agree with her on, a process that the staff of any [member of Parliament], of any party, can and should report these matters to the House of Commons authority. Where there is an unequal power relationship in the workplace and women become vulnerable as a result of it, they have to be supported, they have to be protected.feedback

Oct 28 2017

Sexual abuse and abusive treatment of women by men is not confined to any one industry, workplace or institution. It is rooted in unequal power relationships that treat women as subordinate to men, and a culture where the abuse of women has often been accepted and normalised.feedback

Oct 28 2017

Labour is once again a force for change in Scotland. We've been written off time and again, but we showed that it is our party that is capturing the mood both in Scotland and across the UK.feedback

Oct 28 2017

The problem doesn't stop with those who make unwanted advances on women – it extends to a culture that has tolerated abuse for far too long.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

The prime minister seems to have managed to upset just about everybody and have a warring cabinet around her. It is up to her to get the negotiations back on track. We cannot countenance the idea that we just rush headlong into no deal with Europe. No deal with Europe would be very dangerous for employment and jobs in Britain.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

You cannot leave EU nationals living in Britain in the limbo land they are living in and the letter they sent overnight really doesn't cut it. It is like something out of a civil service comedy, like in The Thick of It. Let's have something grown-up.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

The issue of Brexit is obviously a huge one in Britain. Let me be clear: the British Labour party does not see anyone in Europe as an enemy. We see people across Europe as friends. You are our colleagues, our partners, our comrades and our friends. So I urge all leaders on all sides – the UK and the EU. The UK and the European Union must take steps together. There is no need for insults or divisive posturing. It is our responsibility to build a relationship that will continue to thrive for generations to come, and we in the Labour party are determined to achieve that.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

We would immediately legislate on EU nationals. We would propose legislation on workers' rights, consumers' rights and environmental rights.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

We are not going to walk away from Europe ... The point we were putting was that these negotiations need to get back on track. His message to us was that he recognised that we are fully involved in the process in the British parliament. It was the second time I had met Mr Barnier. We went through the issues, explained our position.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

Our commitment is clear. We must and will respect the result of the EU referendum but at the same time build a new close and cooperative relationship with our fellow Europeans based on our common interests. We are internationalists.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

We have to realise the seriousness of the situation and the chaos in which our government is operating at the present time. It is a chaos of their own making.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

Many establishment commentators have been determined to write the left off. To write socialism out of the agenda. In Britain we were told we hd no chance. No chance we were told just before the recent general election. And although we did not quite win the election I think you would agree we comprehensively proved our critics wrong. We delivered the largest increase of the Labour vote since 1945, increasing our vote by 3 million.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

The idea of no deal would mean that World Trade Organization rules would be implemented straight away in March 2019.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

In the referendum the Labour party campaigned for remain and reform. That call for reform of EU institutions and rules in the interests of the many is echoed by many friends and allies across Europe. We will resist any attempt by British Conservatives to use Brexit to try and create any kind of deregulated tax haven off the shores of Europe. A deal that works for all of us. For Britain and the whole of Europe.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Labour Party

It would be catastrophic for manufacturing industry jobs and we would have real problems all through the economy. I don't want to see that. I want to see an agreement being reached.feedback

Oct 18 2017 - Northern Ireland

So, I say to her, Labour will help you keep your promise. Bring forward a bill to update the act and improve trans rights and Labour will back you. You can give your MPs and the DUP a free vote and Labour will make it law.feedback

Oct 18 2017

Last week I asked the prime minister to scrap the unfair charges on the universal credit helpline. Today she's finally bowed to that pressure. But the fundamental problems of universal credit remain: the six-week wait, rising indebtedness, rent arrears and evictions. Will the prime minister now pause universal credit and fix the problems before pressing ahead with the rollout?feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Labour Party

A lot of abuse takes place on online media and on social media.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Labour Party

Nobody should ever feel alone, isolated, at risk because of their faith, the clothing they choose to wear, the lifestyle they lead.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Labour Party

If you're a woman alone and you've been abused in the street, or abused where you live or abused anywhere at all, you've taken a big step in going to tell the police about it … There must then be an appropriate response by the police to acknowledge and understand the seriousness of the crime.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Labour Party

As communities we must stand up for each other.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Uber

The biggest obstacle to this is not technological, but a rigged economic system that favours wealth extractors, not wealth creators.feedback

Oct 12 2017

There isn't going to be another referendum, so it's a hypothetical question but yes I voted Remain because I thought the best option was to remain, I haven't changed my mind on that. But we accept the result of the referendum therefore we want to make sure we obtain tariff-free access to the European markets and protection of all the rights and membership of agencies we have achieved through the European Union membership. I think we have to look at very carefully the effects on the civilian population of any bombing that takes place before such a decision is made.feedback

Oct 12 2017 - Labour Party

The danger is we will get to March 2019 with no deal, we fall out of the EU, we go on to World Trade Organisation rules and there will be threats to a lot of jobs all across Britain. I think it is quite shocking. We are now 15 months on since the referendum and the government seems to have reached deadlock at every stage.feedback

Oct 12 2017

I think that people who have committed crimes ought to be put on trial.feedback

Oct 12 2017

I think it is difficult to give an answer to that question which is hypothetical.feedback

Oct 12 2017

This is further proof that the Conservatives are yesterday's party, with no plan to fix our country's problems.feedback

Oct 11 2017

If you can't lead, then leave.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - Labour Party

If a prime minister can't lead, shouldn't she leave?feedback

Oct 11 2017 - Labour Party

Everywhere you look it's a government in chaos. On the most important issues facing this country it's a shambles. Brexit negotiations made no progress. Bombardier and other workers facing redundancy. Most working people worse off. Young people pushed into record levels of debt. A million elderly people not getting essential care. Our NHS at breaking point.feedback

Oct 09 2017 - Brexit

Just at the moment when Britain needs a strong negotiating team, we have a cabinet at each other's throats. Half of the Conservative party want the foreign secretary sacked; the other half want the chancellor sacked.feedback

Oct 05 2017

The Conservatives have no plan for Britain and their posturing will not deliver the change our country is crying out for.feedback

Sep 30 2017 - British politics

2017 may be the year when politics finally caught up with the crash of 2008.feedback

Sep 30 2017 - Brexit

It seems a pretty dysfunctional government. I can't imagine what it's like sitting around a table with their Brexit negotiating team because there are three or four people with three or four completely different opinions.feedback

Sep 30 2017 - Brexit

I think we're out of time.feedback

Sep 30 2017

I often feel deeply embarrassed by it. It's not my wish and it's not my doing.feedback

Sep 29 2017

It is often said that elections can only be won from the center ground. And in a way that's not wrong – so long as it's clear that the political center of gravity isn't fixed or unmovable, nor is it where the establishment pundits like to think it is.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - Labour Party

Has within it restrictions in state aid and state spending. That has pressures on it through the European Union to privatise rail for example and other services. There are issues of state aid rules which are endlessly disputed.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Labour Party

And now is the time that we developed a new model of economic management to replace the failed dogmas of neo-liberalism.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Labour Party

That is why Labour is looking not just to repair the damage done by austerity but to transform our economy with a new and dynamic role for the public sector particularly where the private sector has evidently failed.feedback

Sep 28 2017

We are now the politicial mainstream. The Tories are hanging on by their fingertips.feedback

Sep 27 2017

A Prime Minister betting our economic future on a deregulated trade deal with the US might want to explain how 220% tariffs are going to boost our exports.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

If the special relationship means anything, it must mean that we can say to Washington: that way is the wrong way.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

This is the real centre of gravity of British politics. We are now the political mainstream.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

Today's centre ground is certainly not where it was 20 or 30 years ago. A new consensus is emerging from the great economic crash and the years of austerity, when people started to find political voice for their hopes for something different and better. We need to build a still broader consensus around the priorities we set in the election, making the case for both compassion and collective aspiration. This is the real centre of gravity of British politics. We are now the political mainstream.feedback

Everybody whose life could be saved by an organ transplant can have the gift of life - from one human being to another.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

No social cleansing, no jacking up rents, no exorbitant ground rents. And second councils will have to win a ballot of existing tenants and leaseholders before any redevelopment scheme can take place.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

We must be a candid friend to the United States, now more than ever. The values we share are not served by building walls, banning immigrants on the basis of religion, polluting the planet, or pandering to racism.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - United Nations

And let me say frankly - the speech made by the US President to the United Nations last week was deeply disturbing.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

Look at the Conservative housing record and you understand why Grenfell residents are sceptical about their Conservative council and this Conservative government.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

At its core free tuition for all college courses, technical and vocational training so that no one is held back by costs and everyone has the chance to learn. Lifelong learning for all is essential in the economy of the future. The huge shift of employment that will take place under the impact of automation must be planned and managed.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Human Rights

It threatened war and talked of tearing up international agreements. Devoid of concern for human rights or universal values, it was not the speech of a world leader.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

The Labour campaign machine is primed and ready to roll. There were some who didn't come out of the election too well. I'm thinking of some of our more traditional media friends. They ran the campaign they always do under orders from their tax exile owners to trash Labour at every turn. The day before the election one paper devoted fourteen pages to attacking the Labour Party. And our vote went up nearly 10 per cent.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

Our government has a responsibility. It cannot meekly go along with this dangerous course.feedback

Never have so many trees died in vain. The British people saw right through it. So this is a message to the Daily Mail's editor- next time, please could you make it 28 pages?feedback

Our outstanding shadow cabinet team here today. And our message to the country could not be clearer - Labour is ready.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

A Brexit that uses powers returned from Brussels to support a new industrial strategy to upgrade our economy in every region and nation. You have to see how the negotiations go, at the end of it. So we're not ruling it out. But it's highly unlikely.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

Labour is the only party that can bring together those who voted leave and those who backed remain and unite the country for a future beyond Brexit.feedback

We need urgently to face the challenge of automation – robotics that could make so much of contemporary work redundant.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Labour Party

It was not just the result of failed political decisions, it stands for a broken system that Labour must and will replace.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Brexit

So I have a simple message to the cabinet: for Britain's sake, pull yourself together or make way.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Labour Party

Against all predictions, in June we won the largest increase in the Labour vote since 1945 and achieved Labour's best vote for a generation. It's a result which has put the Tories (Conservatives) on notice and Labour on the threshold of power. Yes, we didn't do quite well enough and we remain in opposition for now. But we have become a government-in-waiting. And our message to the country could not be clearer: Labour is ready.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Labour Party

That is why Labour has made clear that Britain should stay within the basic terms of the single market and a customs union for a limited transition period.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Labour Party

So I have a simple message to the cabinet -- for Britain's sake pull yourself together, or make way.feedback

If planned and managed properly, accelerated technological change can be the gateway for a new settlement between work and leisure, a springboard for expanded creativity and culture, making technology our servant and not our master, at long last.feedback

I look forward to hearing [Klein's] insights into the upheavals in global politics and how we can make common cause to tackle the challenges of our times and build societies in the interests of the many, not the few.feedback

Sep 25 2017 - Labour Party

Wide participation in policy making leads to more support for the policies we get, leads us to that movement that will bring about the end of this government but - beyond that - the end of the system of inequality and injustice in our society.feedback

Sep 24 2017 - Labour Party

This law is something that is really unfair. No MP, very few MPs, get more than 50% of their electorate. I think I was one of the very few who does. I will ensure that a Labour government repeal the existing trade union law and bring us in line with the international labour organisational conditions. I will be with those workers demanding a decent pay rise.feedback

Sep 24 2017 - Labour Party

Look. I understand the importance of liquid refreshment. A lot of people drink water. Others drink tea. Others prefer coffee. I understand that. But what we have to recognise is, while a lot of people drink water, others drink tea – and others, don't forget, prefer coffee. And we've been very clear about that. Yes, human beings need to drink fluids. And I respect that. But the point we're making is: yes, there's water, but there's also tea, and there's also coffee – and, let's not forget, there's also water, too. And that's what we have to recognise.feedback

Sep 24 2017 - Labour Party

I think it's impossible for anyone to put an absolute figure on that.feedback

Sep 24 2017 - Labour Party

The clear answer is this: I support the campaign for a decent pay level in the public sector.feedback

Sep 24 2017 - Labour Party

We're looking at how we can open the party up much more and make conference the final decider of policy.feedback

Sep 23 2017 - Labour Party

Our mission must be to work with the people of Britain to transfer wealth, power and opportunity to the many from the few. For the first time in a long time we can provide a politics of hope and a politics for the people.feedback

It's without question the Labour party is the party of women's equality, no matter who else might try to claim that mantle. I acknowledge that the Tories have a woman leader, but their policies have actually hurt women a lot.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - TTIP

We are opposed to TTIP-style deregulation and investor protection deals with the Trump administration, which is precisely what this Tory government wants to use Brexit for. We want trade based on fairness, open rules and strong rights and protections.feedback

Sep 21 2017

Austerity has been forced on public sector workers. I'll be supporting the TUC campaign. I think the public as a whole would be behind public sector workers on demands. Many private sector workers are in work poverty.feedback

Sep 21 2017

The election has changed politics in this country. We are now the mainstream. The government lacks any sense of direction. They are hiding behind parliamentary power grabs to avoid scrutiny. It is a government that is in disarray. We will keep up pressure in parliament. There is a social agenda investment housing, health and social care and industrial needs ... We are ready for an election and we will keep on demanding that this takes place in parliament. That is the process in parliament.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - Labour Party

All too often members of parliament seem to think that actually 'this party is our party, we are the important people in it'. No. It is the members and it is them on behalf of the public and that is why they should have a bigger say.feedback

Sep 13 2017

I hope that the prime minister will be prepared to look carefully at the speed of our response to Hurricane Irma and, if demands are made in the near future from any country affected by it, that Britain will respond as generously as we possibly can to help people at what must be the most catastrophic time of their lives.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - Labour Party

We want a relationship which allows us to trade within the single market. Whether that's formal membership - which is only possible, I believe, if you are actually a member of the EU - or whether it's an agreed trading relationship, is open for discussion.feedback

We cannot ignore that this is the latest in an increasing number of extreme weather events: from the floods that affected millions in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal to Tropical Storm Harvey and the terrible mudslides in Sierra Leone.feedback

I want to thank Kez for her tireless service to our party and movement, and look forward to campaigning with her in future.feedback

Aug 27 2017 - Human Rights

I think there has to be an arrangement in the long term with Europe, which is one of tariff-free trade access to Europe, which is protection of the rights and regulations and gains we've made from Europe on workers rights, environment protections and consumer rights, and have continued membership of European institutions, particularly the European court of human rights, but there are many others as well.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Labour Party

Invest in the future of all us. Invest in better transport systems; invest in sustainable jobs in new industries; invest in communities; invest in decent housing. You then create the virtuous circle of increasing employment in all those industries and providing a common good for all. You don't cut your way to prosperity: you improve people's lives by investing in the future. If money was found to bail out the banks then surely the money should be available to support and invest in communities all across the country.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Labour Party

[If] you cut and destroy public services, they are not there for anybody later on in life. Even the very richest get heart attacks; even the very richest may get cancer; even the very richest homes might catch fire. At that point they need an ambulance service. At that point they need a hospital. At that point they need a fire service. I simply say to the Tory party, think again about the direction you're taking the country in.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Labour Party

I'm saying to the government: halt this closure programme, halt the closure of this centre here, don't destroy the 600 jobs that are available here that are important as an economic contributor to this town. Instead think again. Think about the role of government in supporting people. Think again about the punitive way in which you operate your regimes.feedback

Aug 20 2017

Many well-off people I speak to, in Islington and around the country, would be quite happy to pay more tax to fund better public services or to pay down our debts. Opinion polls bear this out - better off people are no less likely to support higher taxes.feedback

The fire has raised profound concerns about the way that social housing is provided and managed in this country, and I as well as many survivors worry that without a wider focus, the inquiry will fail to get fully to grips with the causes of the fire.feedback

I have accepted Sarah Champion's resignation and thank her for her work in the shadow cabinet. I look forward to working together in future.feedback

Aug 16 2017 - Islamophobia

In recent days, the Sun has published statements that incite Islamophobia and stigmatise entire communities. That is wrong, dangerous and must be condemned, as Naz Shah's public letter does in the clearest possible terms. The interests of victims of sexual abuse and the rigorous investigation into the underlying causes of that abuse are damaged by this kind of bigotry and prejudice.feedback

Surely for goodness sake have we not learnt the lessons of what happened in the earlier part of the 20th century, surely we have learned the lessons of the brave people that marched from Selma to Montgomery, there can be no return to those days.feedback

I hope President Trump will recognise he is the president of the United States. And that includes all of the people of the United States.feedback

Aug 14 2017 - Mexico

There are stories of his heroism while living in Mexico in exile and then the boat to Cuba, the march to Havana and the revolution in 1959. He managed to bring good quality health services to all the people of Cuba, good quality education to all the people of Cuba and, of course, he had a foreign policy which was global, but particularly important in Southern Africa in supporting Angola against the apartheid regime.feedback

Aug 14 2017 - Labour Party

Yes, I'm spending the summer campaigning around the country, but everywhere I go I make sure I have time to meet and listen to different people and different groups, and I learn a lot by that. It does mean that when we're writing policy documents you think, hang on, this isn't practical, it wouldn't work. Let's do something else.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Labour Party

Trump and Kim must immediately wind down the war of rhetoric, as the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has demanded. The risks of an unintended escalation into full-blown conflict are too great for the whole world. We cannot play fast and loose with nuclear weapons and nuclear threats. Our government must press for measured responses to bring the temperature down.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Labour Party

Our government must not drag our country into any military action over the Korea crisis, including joint exercises.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Labour Party

There can be no question of blind loyalty to the erratic and belligerent Trump administration. US-led regime-change wars and the threat of more to come have made this crisis more dangerous and difficult to resolve.feedback

Aug 11 2017

The idea that anyone can contemplate using nuclear weapons at any stage against anybody is unthinkable. There is no such thing as an isolated nuclear attack. It will kill millions on both sides of the Korean border and, of course, in neighboring countries.feedback

Aug 11 2017 - Labour Party

If Theresa May is back from her holiday yet, perhaps she's listening. It would be a really good idea to have another walk, have an epiphany moment while you're walking and come along with a proposal to dissolve parliament and have another election. We're ready for it at any time.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Labour Party

Labour would, firstly, properly fund our NHS by putting emergency money in. Secondly we'd lift the pay cap to ensure there are sufficient staff at the NHS to stay there and do the work, and thirdly invest urgently in reinstating the nurse bursary so that we have a good number of nurses for the future.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Labour Party

The times to see a doctor are increasing, the times to be treated in A&E departments are increasing, the times to get elective surgery are increasing. We can't go on like this. The NHS is something we all rely on. It's up to government to make sure it's there for everybody all the time.feedback

Aug 07 2017 - Labour Party

There has to be a dialogue and a process that respects the independence of the judiciary and respects the human rights of all. What I condemn is the violence that's been done by any side and all sides in this. Violence is not going to solve the issues.feedback

This is not sport. Kroenke should stick to football if he wants to be involved in sport. In my mind 'blood sport' is a contradiction and there should be no place on television or anywhere else for it.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Labour Party

I'm appalled at the glorification of killing wild and rare animals on this TV channel. As an Arsenal fan I'm disgusted that Stan Kroenke is involved in such a brutal, unethical and unnecessary activity.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Homosexuality

Homophobic hate crime must be treated as seriously as hate crime based on race and faith, by being made an aggravated offence. I am proud of the role the Labour party played in these advances, by equalising the age of consent, introducing the Equality Act, equalising adoption laws, and legislating for civil partnerships for same-sex couples. Labour also repealed the deplorable section 28 in 2003.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Israel

There are members of my local branch that now won't speak with me because they know I'm Jewish. This was never the case and only started in the last two years. Our Jewish friends are no more responsible for the actions of Israel or the [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu government than our Muslim friends are for those various self-styled Islamic states or organisations.feedback

The mayor will go as far as the law allows in his new London Plan to ensure rules applying to such spaces are no more onerous than those that apply on publicly owned land.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Labour Party

We must reclaim our public spaces from the corporate interests who want to control them. Our country's laws should govern public space, not secretive private rules. City life is made rich and exciting by our varied shared spaces. They should be run in the interests of the many not the few.feedback

It would be a managed thing on the basis of the skills required. What there wouldn't be is whole-scale importation of underpaid workers from central Europe in order to destroy conditions, particularly in the construction industries. You prevent agencies recruiting for jobs like that, you advertise for jobs in the locality first … It would be on the basis on the economic need and skills required. The need for nurses is huge … we have to be sensible about this.feedback

The single market is dependent on membership of the EU. What we have said all along is that we want a tariff free trade access to the European market and a partnership with Europe in the future. The two things are inextricably linked so the question then is the kind of trade relationship of the future and we have made it very clear we want a tariff free trade access with the European market.feedback

It is no good Theresa May suppressing a report into the foreign funding of extremist groups. We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to these terror networks, including ISIS here and in the Middle East.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Labour Party

Given the prime minister has had to administer a slap-down to her squabbling cabinet, does she think the chancellor is actually talking about her own ministers? The prime minister doesn't seem to have had any problem finding money to pay for the DUP's support. Can I invite the prime minister to take a check with reality on this? I look along that frontbench opposite and I see a cabinet bickering and backbiting while the economy gets weaker and people are pushed further into debt.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Labour Party

Discrimination has gone on too long. The Gender Recognition Act does not allow trans people to self-identify their gender and forces them to undergo invasive medical tests. This is wrong. Labour recognised this in our manifesto, pledging to update the act. Theresa May told Pink News that 'changes need to be made' but failed to include anything on this in the Conservative manifesto.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Northern Ireland

So, I say to her today, Labour will help you keep your promise. Bring forward a bill to update the act and improve trans rights and Labour will back you. You can give your MPs and the DUP a free vote and Labour will make it law.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Labour Party

We would be disrespecting the memory of those who died in the Grenfell Tower fire, and putting further lives at risk, if we fail to fully learn these lessons. It is therefore our view that an immediate inquiry into the proximate causes of the Grenfell Tower fire should be supplemented by a longer-term, more wide-ranging inquiry into the underlying causes of what went wrong and the extent to which they are replicated on a national scale.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Labour Party

There is widespread recognition that Grenfell Tower residents and victims' families deserve rapid answers to these questions, and that any undue delay risks adding to the intolerable levels of suffering they have already experienced.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Labour Party

With this in mind, I urge you to consider broadening the inquiry team to a model more similar to that used in the Macpherson Inquiry, including with representation from those from minority backgrounds, in order to support the judge leading this inquiry.feedback

Unease, that a society can go on in this direction with poverty and inequality alongside very rapidly rising huge individual wealth for a small number of people. I've got good news for the Tories: I know they're living through a nightmare at the moment. I'm somebody, as you're very well aware, that doesn't get involved in personal abuse and would never exploit somebody else's misfortune – so I want to help these Tories out of their nightmare. Feel free, at any time, to resign and we'll have another general election.feedback

I think have to have some degree of certainty and confidence for the future. We cannot go [on] with these levels of regional disparity, we cannot go on with the underfunding of so many of our public services and we cannot go on loading every generation with debts of £50,000 or £60,000, which at some point will be so serious there will be a shortage of people to go to university because they simply can't countenance the idea of that level of debt. The result is we all lose.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Labour Party

There are no short cuts. If we are to create a high-skill, high-wage and high-productivity economy we're going to have to invest more to upgrade our economy for the 21st century. And that will mean businesses paying a bit more tax to invest in education while still maintaining low tax rates by historical and international comparisons.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Labour Party

I think we should be prepared to raise to what would still be a lower level than the average of the G7 as a way of investing in our future. I don't see a future for this country of being a sort of low-tax haven on the shores of Europe. I see the future of this country as one that has a close partnership with the European Union, a tariff-free trade access to Europe and a similarity in taxation levels.feedback

The low-pay epidemic is a threat to our economic stability. So can she take some tough choices and instead of offering platitudes, offer some real help, and real support for those in work, young people who deserve better and deserve to be given more optimism rather than greater inequality?feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Labour Party

There is a low-pay epidemic in this country and it has a terrible effect on young people. Those in their 20s will earn £12,500 a year less than the generation that went before them – the first generation to be worse off than the last.feedback

I was hoping she was going to say a bit more about NHS staff and their pay during her birthday greetings.

While we do that, we will always recognise the need to makes those decisions against the need to live within our means.feedback

Jul 01 2017 - London

Grenfell taught us a message about housing, taught us a message that so many people are frightened of living in tower blocks, frightened of the danger, frightened of the insecurity. That is the face of modern Britain with the Tories. That is the face of modern Britain with austerity. End austerity and invest in the future. Invest in decent housing.feedback

Jul 01 2017

You shouldn't draw easy conclusions from results like this. There is a lot of analysis that is still to be done. But there are some rather obvious things. People under 40 were worried about the future of public services and genuinely wanted a fairer society and they have a government that doesn't really believe in that.feedback

When you cut local authority budgets by 40% we all pay a price in public safety – fewer inspectors, fewer building control inspectors, fewer planning inspectors, we all pay a price.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Labour Party

What the tragedy of Grenfell Tower has exposed is the disastrous effects of austerity, this disregard for working class communities, the terrible consequences of deregulation and cutting corners. I urge the prime minister to come up with the resources needed to test and remove cladding, retrofit sprinklers, properly fund the fire service and police, so that all our communities can truly feel safe in own homes. This disaster must be a wake-up call.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Article 50

Jun 26 2017 - Labour Party

The truth is it is too little, too late. That could have been done and should have been done a year ago when Labour put that very proposal to the House of Commons. But by making an offer only after the negotiations have begun, the prime minister has dragged the issue of EU citizens and families deep into the complex and delicate negotiations of our future trade relations with the European Union, which she herself has been willing to say may result in failure. This isn't a generous offer. This is confirmation the government is prepared to use people as bargaining chips.feedback

Jun 26 2017

The commentariat got it wrong. The elites got it wrong. Politics is about the lives of all of us, and the wonderful campaign that I was involved with, that I was so proud to lead, brought people back into politics because they believed there was something on offer for them.

I think everyone in the Labour party, and everyone who supported the Labour party yesterday – young people, old people, everyone in between – I think they should be very proud of what we have achieved.feedback

It is the strength of our communities that gets us through these awful times as London Mayor Sadiq Khan recognized, but which the current occupant in the White House has neither the grace nor the sense to grasp.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Syria conflict

The new U.S. president seems determined to add to the dangers by recklessly escalating the confrontation with North Korea, unilaterally launching missile strikes on Syria, opposing President Obama's nuclear arms deal with Iran, and backing a new nuclear arms race. We will not be afraid to speak our mind. Pandering to an erratic Trump administration will not deliver stability. Britain deserves better than simply outsourcing our country's security and prosperity to the whims of the Trump White House.feedback

As we prepare for government, we have already changed the debate and given people hope. Hope that it doesn't have to be like this; that inequality can be tackled; that austerity can be ended; that you can stand up to the elites and the cynics. This is the new center ground.feedback

I want to go on representing them and go on learning from them in Parliament, but above all, I want to see tomorrow the cynical way in which this election was called turned on its head.feedback

We won't defeat terrorists by ripping up our basic rights and our democracy. They underestimated the good sense of ordinary people, ordinary people all over Britain.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Scottish referendum

The priority is the election of a Labour government... I do not see the urgency or the need for an independence referendum.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Human Rights

We have to protect our basic freedoms, our basic democracy and our human rights. We are signed up to the European convention on human rights. Our Human Rights Act protects our rights.feedback

Of course Diane is somebody that works extremely hard and represents her community very well and I have to say has received totally unfair levels of attack and abuse not just recently – over many years. I'll be talking to her later on today – she's not well at the moment.feedback

There's been calls made by many responsible people on this who are very worried she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers and now is saying that we have a problem. Yes, we do have a problem, we shouldn't have cut the police numbers.
