There were no winners today. Consultation with the members has been evaded endlessly until we're left with a grassroots motion being defeated by the Leadership, damaging our morale, our electoral chances and the country in the process. Everyone lost.
Labour conference votes AGAINST campaigning for Remain. Defers decision until after election. Because Labour is NOT a Remain party it will lose votes to Lib Dems, Greens, Plaid & SNP. Disaster! Labour may be throwing away the next election. Tragedy!

Corbyn defeats bid for Labour to campaign for Remain at the next election. Strategically, very impressive that he's managed to ride two horses for so long. Not alienating its Leave voters is essential to the long-term prospects of the Labour Party.
The irony of Jeremy Corbyn relying on most of the union barons and then conference being refused a card vote. The insurgency is over.
