Adonis apologises for telling Brexiters not to vote Labour in EU elections

Peer backs party’s alternative plan for leaving EU in post criticised by Chuka Umunna

The pro-remain Labour peer Andrew Adonis, who is standing for the party in the EU elections, has backed its “sensible alternative plan” to deliver a Brexit deal, in a Facebook post that baffled some of his supporters.

In the post, Lord Adonis, a candidate European parliament elections candidate in the South West England constituency, apologised for “off-the-cuff comments” he had made during an LBC radio phone interview, in which he said those who were pro-Brexit should not vote Labour because the party was going to stop Britain leaving the EU.

This would normally have been a tightly guarded and unpublicised decision – Attlee, for instance, involved only a few trusted ministers in his momentous 1947 decision to build an independent British nuclear weapon. Instead, the Huawei decision was reported in full detail in the following morning’s Daily Telegraph, which named five cabinet ministers who opposed it, and laid the decision directly at the feet of Mrs May.

Hunt calls for Trump to address parliament during state visit

Foreign secretary’s support for US president seen as revealing ambition to be next Tory leader

Jeremy Hunt has come out in favour of Donald Trump being invited to address both Houses of Parliament despite protestations from other politicians about the controversial state visit, as he made a thinly veiled pitch to be the next Conservative leader.
