Downing Street has rejected pleas for Parliament to be recalled to discuss the possibility of a no-deal Brexit. Boris Johnson has been urged by more than 100 MPs from across the Commons to call Parliament back to address the “impending national...
Keir StarmerWrong again. Johnson has no mandate for a ‘no deal’ Brexit. He should be held to account by parliament & defeated.
This is the first photograph of Pc Andrew Harper taken just four weeks ago at his wedding in July.
Pc Harper, 28, married wife Lissie and the pair celebrated their wedding at Ardington House, a Georgian manor in Oxfordshire.

Keir StarmerAll thoughts are with PC Harper’s family & friends from me & so many of my constituents who have contacted me today to support our police.
It is time for rebel Tories to join the responsible majority and block Boris Johnson’s ‘do or die’ pledge
Keir StarmerWe are in the middle of the most intense political crisis for a generation; Boris Johnson as PM will make things worse not better. The national interest lies in MPs from all parties working together to stop him.
Keir StarmerI respect Philip Hammond’s decision to announce that he cannot serve in a Boris Johnson Government.
As I wrote in today’s Observer, I want to work with all those MPs who, like me, want to ensure Parliament can stop a disastrous no deal exit. #Marr
He says government departments have been ordered to step up preparations for an EU withdrawal without an agreement.
Keir StarmerThis dismissive attitude towards no deal shows a complete lack of regard or respect for the thousands of people who stand to lose their jobs, lose access to medicine, or face anxiety and hardship as a direct result.
Leaving the EU without a deal has become a key pledge for a number of candidates for PM
Keir StarmerThe Tory debate on Brexit has descended into the disturbing, ludicrous and reckless.
We can't be bystanders while the next Prime Minister forces through a no deal without the consent of the British people.
Tomorrow MPs must act in the national interest.
Shadow Brexit secretary also warns Labour risks losing its remain voters
Keir StarmerWe are not the country of Nigel Farage and Tommy Robinson.
In the coming weeks we must take the fight to those who challenge our values. Labour is an internationalist party and always will be.
My interview with @guardian.
Get on the electoral register so you can vote in elections and referendums.
Keir StarmerToday is the last chance to register to vote in the EU Elections.
In these elections we must take the fight to those who challenge our values.
We are not the country of Nigel Farage and Tommy Robinson.
Make sure your voice is heard and you #voteLabour
'I want to clear – Labour will not support this latest desperate attempt by the PM'
Keir StarmerUnless Parliament takes a stand now, the outcome of the Brexit negotiations is going to be determined by the outcome of next Tory leadership contest.
Labour will not countenance that. My message to the @britishchambers #BCCConf
We've been badly let down by incapable PM and incompetent Government
Keir StarmerThis week Labour will once again
vote down the Tories’ failed Brexit plan.
Our country has been badly let down by an incapable Prime Minister and an incompetent Government.
We need an urgent change of approach. My piece in today’s @TheSundayMirror
Met Police chief Cressida Dick's comments come after the PM insisted there was "no direct correlation".
Keir StarmerThere are many interlinked causes of violent crime. Police numbers are not the only factor, but Met Commissioner Cressida Dick right to say policing cuts do play their part. If we are to tackle knife crime, much more honesty from government is needed.
Amber Rudd, David Gauke and Greg Clark today make clear they are prepared to defy the Prime Minister unless there is a Parliamentary breakthrough on her deal next week.
Keir StarmerFirst it was Labour, then it was Parliament, now it’s the Cabinet telling the Prime Minister to take no deal off the table.
It’s time the PM finally listened and did the right thing for the country. If she doesn’t, Parliament will force her hand.
PM Theresa May suffers a fresh defeat in Commons vote on her Brexit strategy by 303 to 258.
Keir StarmerThe Prime Minister’s Brexit strategy has once again been defeated. She can no longer claim to have a ‘substantial and sustainable majority’ in Parliament.
We can’t go on like this. Parliament must decide what happens next.
Labour is planning to seize control of the Brexit negotiations by forcing Theresa May to put her deal to a second decisive vote before the end of the month. In an interview with The Sunday Times...
Keir StarmerWe have got to put a hard stop to the Prime Minister running down the clock on Brexit and trying to impose a binary choice between her deal and no deal.
This week Parliament needs to say enough is enough - and to take control of what happens next.
