A post-Brexit deal should make it easier to build supermarkets, avoid tax and sue the UK, US business lobbyists say.
Chuka UmunnaThe stark reality of a Trump Johnson Brexit has been laid by bare by this document, which would put treasured national institutions such as the NHS, Post Office and BBC on the negotiating table.
The Liberal Democrats have long pushed for a People’s Vote. But without the numbers in parliament, the only option left for Remainers is to support a general election before the government’s withdrawal bill can pass
Chuka UmunnaIf like the @LibDems you want to #StopBrexit, here's why we believe the best thing for Remainers now is to support a General Election, on our terms, in December. ⬇️
NEW It comes after the Mirror revealed that senior diplomats accused the government of “putting lives at risk” over shadowy briefings accusing opposition MPs of “colluding with foreign powers”
Chuka UmunnaBREAKING: I have written to the Prime Minister demanding answers over Number 10 briefings that suggest MPs are the subjects of officially-sanctioned surveillance and intelligence gathering operations into contact with foreign governments.
As we enter into the crucial final few days before the European summit this week, there is fevered speculation about the chances of a deal. The Liberal Democrats are clear that there is no version...
Chuka Umunna.@joswinson in today’s Sunday Times: “You cannot be pro-jobs and pro-Brexit despite what Jeremy Corbyn says. It’s bad for the economy.” Glad to be led by a leader who backs #Remain without hesitation.
The source says Germany's Angela Merkel was highly pessimistic in a call with Boris Johnson, but the EU's top official hits back.
Chuka UmunnaIt is obvious that Boris Johnson’s Conservatives are trying to shift the blame for their own arrogant refusal to negotiate or suggest workable options. The blame for this mess does not lie with Merkel. It lies on the shoulders of the Conservatives.
Exclusive: Dr Phillip Lee to mount Brexit challenge against veteran Eurosceptic
Chuka UmunnaMy friend and fellow @LibDems @DrPhillipLeeMP is taking on Brexiter Tory John Redwood at the general election in Wokingham - a #Remain seat which deserves far better representation. Phillip will provide that!
Boris Johnson is unfit for office. Agree? Add your name
Chuka UmunnaBoris Johnson tried to shut down Parliament and tried to silence our democracy. It was a Trump-like authoritarian power grab.
He is unfit to be Prime Minister. If you agree, back our campaign here today👇
The move will be debated at Labour's conference on Saturday and sources expect the attempt to succeed.
Chuka UmunnaThe move to abolish @tom_watson as Deputy Leader for speaking out on the need to #StopBrexit illustrates how illiberal and authoritarian the Labour Party has become. This is no longer the party of Attlee, Wilson, Blair and Brown - its Corbyn’s Labour now.
Exclusive: Leader Jo Swinson says Lib Dems will campaign on unequivocal anti-Brexit policy
Chuka UmunnaBREAKING: @JoSwinson ⬇️

Britain risks “the biggest unilateral abandonment” of its foreign interests in modern history if it leaves the European Union without a deal, 25 former senior British ambassadors warn today. In a...
Chuka UmunnaIn tmr’s @Times 25 former senior British Ambassadors warn a “no deal” Brexit would result in “an unprecedented diminution of the UK’s international influence” - @DominicRaab should heed their advice
Brexiteer Jeremy Corbyn has ruled out an emergency government, but Jo Swinson is ready to step up to stop no deal – and to stop Brexit itself
Chuka UmunnaJohnson, Gove, Raab and the rest of the Brexit elite see themselves a tribunes of the people – but they do not speak for the country. @joswinson and the Liberal Democrats are determined to not only stop a No Deal Brexit, but to stop Brexit altogether.
