Keir Starmer quotes

Guy Verhofstadt asks, what is the purpose of this general election'? The answer is simple. The prime minister is attempting to crush all challenge to her hard Tory Brexit approach at home and to negotiate by threat and demand abroad. As Guy Verhofstadt rightly points out, far from helping negotiations with the EU, the prime minister's stance is eroding the chances of achieving the best deal for Britain.feedback

It is deeply concerning that the prime minister is now so isolated from our EU partners. I have emphasised in parliament on a number of occasions that the tone adopted so far by the government is unlikely to get the talks off to a good start. The prime minister should have spent the last nine months building alliances across Europe, not pandering to those in her cabinet and her party who want to sever all links with the EU and retreat from our closest allies and most important trading partners.feedback

It is a sad day because I campaigned to stay in the EU, but I and the Labour Party have accepted the result and therefore we are resolute to get the best deal for our country and to shape the future. So we're not looking back, we're looking forward but of course it's tinged with sadness, I wanted to stay in the EU.feedback

Freedom of movement is an EU rule, therefore when we leave, those rules fall away and we have to decide what immigration rules and policy go in its place. What I'm arguing for in the speech is new rules that reflect both economic demands and those of the community.feedback

All these tests are tests that at one stage or the other the government has said it is prepared to meet, and therefore it's impossible for them that they cannot be met, including the single market test – those are David Davis' words. They are tough tests, but we are talking about the future of the UK in the EU and the world.feedback

Under this view, not having a full collaborative and co-operative relationship with social Europe is a positive, not a risk.feedback

You absolutely have to have a vote in parliament before this could happen.feedback

It is a reminder of the stark choices we face over Brexit and the huge risks of the PM failing to get a good deal. Labour is clear that no deal is the worst possible deal and would not be in the national interest. The PM should be fighting for a close, collaborative future relationship with the EU and rule out the danger of reverting to WTO terms, as this would be disastrous for British jobs and businesses.feedback

This just emphasises how isolated the prime minister is now on this. Whether you campaigned to remain or leave, there's a growing consensus – including now the House of Lords and the cross-party Brexit select committee – that EU nationals should not be used as bargaining chips. The prime minister needs to listen to this, and act now.feedback

It is a source of real frustration that so far the [Brexit] debate has been focused too much on parliament and process, and not enough on the principles and priorities that will shape the Brexit deal and our future relationship with the EU.feedback

For months we've been calling for a plan ... now there's a White Paper too late in the day to ask meaningful questions ... That is completely unacceptable.feedback

Had the outcome been to remain, we would expect the result to have been honored, and that cuts both ways.feedback

Labour have consistently said that we will not frustrate or delay the process of triggering Article 50. Therefore Labour will accept the government's amendment.feedback

The terms upon which we leave the EU will define us and our country for many years.feedback

Parliament and the public need to know the basic terms the government is seeking to achieve from Brexit. This issue is too important to be left mired in uncertainty any longer.feedback

The government has approached its task in the wrong way and its approach is now unraveling, and I am afraid to say it's unraveling in a most ... ugly way. Only parliament can make and repeal laws.feedback

I have stood here and accepted that there is a mandate for exit. There is no mandate for the terms. It has never been put to the country; it has not even been put to the Secretary of State's political party; and it has not been put to this House. Where is the mandate on the terms?feedback

It's frankly astonishing that the government proposes to devise the negotiating terms of our exit from the EU, then to negotiate and then to reach a deal without a vote in this House.feedback

We have concluded that there is sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against both Mr Huhne and Ms Pryce for perverting the course of justice.feedback

I am innocent of these charges and I intend to fight this in the courts and I am confident that a jury will agree. So as to avoid any distraction to either my official duties or my trial defence, I am standing down and resigning as Energy and Climate Change Secretary.feedback
