All quotes about Labour Party
While Jeroen Dijsselbloem has been a good finance minister – he had a pivotal role the past four years in taking some tough but necessary decisions – the chances of him returning in an upcoming cabinet are slim. His party, the Labour Party (PvdA) has lost more than 75 percent of support from its voters compared to the 2012 elections. It therefore seems unlikely that the PvdA will again take part in a coalition.
We do not rule out any party, not even … no party at all. At the same time there are huge differences between my party and the Labour Party and the Freedom Party.
If Scotland is to have a real choice - when the terms of Brexit are known but before it is too late to choose our own course - then that choice must be offered between the autumn of next year, 2018, and the spring of 2019. If the UK leaves the EU without Scotland indicating beforehand - or at least within a short time after it - that we want a different relationship with Europe, we could face a lengthy period not just outside the EU but also the single market. Yes I do. Absolutely, I believe that. LABOUR PARTY WON'T OPPOSE CALL FOR REFERENDUM IF SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT WANTS ONE.
It was the same kind of casual indifference that he seems to have about our fate with the European Union. He just doesn't seem to care about the United Kingdom sticking together. I know that's not the view of my colleagues in the Scottish Labour Party – they must be tearing their hair out this morning.
If a referendum is held then it is absolutely fine, it should be held. I don't think it's the job of Westminster or the Labour party to prevent people holding referenda.
When one of the smartest people in the world thinks you’ve had it, listen to them. Those of us who love the NHS need Labour in power, not exiled from it. John McDonnell wrote an article on 26 February announcing that a “soft coup” is under way against Jeremy Corbyn. This coup, claimed McDonnell, “is being perpetrated by an alliance between elements in the Labour party and the Murdoch media empire, both intent on destroying Jeremy Corbyn and all that he stands for”. But the truth is that not everyone who wants Corbyn out is a Blairite stooge, or in thrall to Rupert Murdoch: the latest ally of the Progress Putsch is Stephen Hawking.
Jeremy Corbyn will lead us into the next election. Of course we are building up a succession for the long-term future and we have got some really great young talent coming through but they need more experience before eventually they will succeed.
Jeremy Corbyn is trying to transform our society so that it is radically more equal, radically more fair, radically more democratic. The whole media establishment [is] owned by people whose power is entrenched. They are trying to destroy a socialist who is trying to transfer power from the establishment to the people. That is their job to do. The oligarchs are protecting their power base.
The party’s supporters voted two to one to remain, so why does Jeremy Corbyn kowtow to the leavers?If you are unfortunate enough to be standing on a burning drilling platform in the North Sea, you face an unenviable choice. Stay on the platform and the blaze will kill you; leap into the sea and, if you are still alive after you hit the water, you risk a rapid death from exposure.
When I became the MP for Norwich South, I promised my constituents I would be 'Norwich's voice in Westminster, not Westminster's voice in Norwich'. I therefore cannot, in all good conscience, vote for something I believe will ultimately harm the city I have the honour to represent, love and call home. It is therefore with a heavy heart that I have decided to resign from the shadow cabinet. It has been a privilege to work with Jeremy Corbyn and be part of the shadow cabinet. I will continue to support our party and our leader from the backbenches to the very best of my ability.
Having been hammered by political punters backing Jeremy Corbyn at 200/1 to be Labour leader, Donald Trump at 150/1 to be US President, Brexit and a Tory General Election victory both at 6/1, we're taking no chances this time round.
There's a desperate need in British politics for that third party that sits at the centre ground, which both the Labour Party and the Conservative Party have completely abandoned. I will ditch the right wing, Trump-style rhetoric and appeal to the common sense center.
I just wish the party would take half a step back and realize that if the public are running in this direction, the last thing the Labour Party should be doing is running at speed in the other direction because that's not going ... to win us the country.
I will do everything I can to repay the trust and the support, to bring our party together, to make it an engine for progress in our country and the people who depend on the Labour party to protect their interest, to get power and deliver real change in this country. Let's wipe that slate clean from today and get on with the work we've got to do as a party together.
We have a Labour Party at the moment that is not working, we have got a leader that doesn't have the confidence of his members of parliament and isn't reaching out to the country.
It is in the best interests of the Labour Party that we now come together so we can have one candidate.
Jeremy Corbyn is unable to provide the leadership that this party needs - I believe I can. I am not a Blairite, I am not a Brownite and I am not a Corbynista, I am my own woman.
Today I am announcing my decision to stand for the leadership of the Labour Party.
Whilst we will now leave the European Union the terms of our withdrawal are unclear. If there is too much backsliding by the government and with the Labour Party detached from many of its voters, then UKIP's best days may be yet to come.
I don't think Jeremy Corbyn is going to stay. I think he's going to go.
I was democratically elected leader of our party for a new kind of politics by 60 percent of Labour members and supporters, and I will not betray them by resigning. Today's vote by MPs has no constitutional legitimacy. We are a democratic party, with a clear constitution. Our people need Labour party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite behind my leadership at a critical time for our country.
We can't duck the issue of immigration, clearly it was a factor. What I'm totally amazed by is that in the past 24 hours 140,000 people have said they do not want the Labour Party to spend the next two months debating the leadership.
There is no leadership challenge, there is no other leadership candidate. The public and Labour party supporters expect us to get on with the job of reforming parliament, getting us through the economic downturn.
I am truly humbled that so many of my colleagues have nominated me for the leadership of the Labour Party… and I formally accept the nomination, the responsibility it brings and the opportunity to serve the people of Britain.
The Labour party is in an open civil war, if they can't govern themselves they can't govern the country.
Even if it worked, I don't think it would protect Britain against the sorts of risks we face over the next two decades. As to views within the parliamentary Labour party, obviously this issue hasn't been discussed for some time, but I would guess that those concerns are widespread.
I'm absolutely determined to win this seat back at the next general election, because anything other than a Conservative government will put our recovery at risk and mean Ed Miliband [leader of opposition Labour party] in Downing Street and I'm more determined than ever to make sure that we deliver security for Britain.
In the election halls of the two big parties, people are rejoicing. A government coalition without the Liberals and the Labour Party working together is thinkable. But this cooperation might prove to be difficult, after an polarising election campaign between the right and left, the like of which the Netherlands hasn't seen in a long time.
The truth is that this issue will continue to dominate the headlines. I can't take it off the agenda, and in those circumstances it is not possible for me as leader of the Labour Party in Scotland, to put on the agenda the real issues that should dominate.
My constitutional duty is to make sure that a government can be formed following last Thursday's general election. I have informed the Queen's Private Secretary that it is my intention to tender my resignation to the Queen. In the event that the Queen accepts, I shall advise her to invite the leader of the Opposition to seek to form a government. My resignation as leader of the Labour Party will take effect inmediatly.
She was controversial, we disagreed with much of what she did as a Labour Party but we can disagree and also hugely respect her extraordinary achievements and her extraordinary personal strength.
