  • Why Labour looks set to become the referendum party Link
    Robert Peston Thu 11 Apr 2019 17:57

    On a noisy night, what stood out for me was Labour's shadow chancellor John McDonnell volunteered to me, on my show - without me needing to ask - a commitment by the PM to hold a so-called "confirmatory" referendum on any Brexit deal could be a way of "entrenching" whatever Brexit entente Labour and the Government can reach.

    It felt like a straw in the gale blowing from Brussels. So I talked to a number of his colleagues - including those sceptical about a people's vote - and it is clear to me Labour is close to upgrading the referendum idea from option to formal first-choice policy.

    Which doesn't mean Labour's shadow cabinet is yet foursquare behind it: there are probably ten of Jeremy Corbyn's most senior colleagues who, like him, have doubts about whether Labour should become the referendum party.

  • The new Brexit deadline of 31 October sets up Tory leadership election and even general election. Here is why Link
    Robert Peston Thu 11 Apr 2019 08:46

    Under pressure from France's president Macron, the Brexit delay to 31 October is shorter than Donald Tusk, the EU's president, and many government heads thought desirable - though still considerably longer than Theresa May consistently said was acceptable.

    Its impact may well be to turn the Tories into the no-deal Brexit party and Labour into the referendum party, via a change of Tory leader and even a general election.

    Here's how and why.

    What was agreed late last night poses an immediate and important question for MPs and ministers, because there is an explicit opportunity for the UK to avoid participating in the EU election by leaving without a deal on 1 June.

    This is how the EU council conclusions put it:

    "If the UK is still a Member of the EU on 23-26 May 2019 and if it has not ratified the Withdrawal Agreement by 22 May 2019, it must hold the elections to the European Parliament in accordance with Union law. If the United...
