Labour Must Not Abstain In Brexit Deal Vote, Says Shadow Minister
Labour must not abstain in a vote on any Brexit trade deal Boris Johnson strikes with the EU, a shadow minister has said.Lucy Powell suggested on HuffPost UK’s Commons People podcast that refusing to vote would amount to “putting two fingers up” to ex-Labour voters who back Brexit.The shadow business minister said it was “better to be strong” and take a position.Labour leader Keir Starmer is currently trying to contain a shadow cabinet row over whether the party should back any deal or abstain.On Thursday, he acknowledged the “different opinions” in Labour but said “a deal is obviously in the national interest” and stressed the party would take a united position, A UK-EU trade deal could be agreed with days as negotiations draw to a close.Reports suggest that some shadow cabinet ministers may quit if Labour backs the deal. The Times named shadow chancellor Anneliese Dodds, shadow trade secretary Emily Thornberry and shadow justice secretary David Lammy as among those who have reservations about voting in favour.Powell, who worked on a review of Labour’s crushing December 2019 election defeat, suggested her party would have sought a softer Brexit.But she described Johnson’s proposed deal as something that can be “built on”, whereas no-deal would be a “catastrophe”.Powell told Commons People: “I think having a skinny deal or whatever, a kind of basis of future negotiation and relationship-building is very important, even more so because of the economic crisis and the  pandemic we’re in — businesses need that certainty.“I think it’s quite hard for us to oppose that on that basis.”Powell also warned that the vote would be highly significant for so-called red wall Leave voters who switched to the Tories last year.“These long term trends in our voter coalition are not going to go away,” the Manchester Central MP said.“It’s not just about Brexit, although Brexit was a big symbolic expression of Labour losing touch with its traditional voter base.“And we can’t keep putting two fingers up to people if we want them to vote for us again and support us and be part of the agenda that we want for the future.”She added: “It was unbelievable - I went round loads of red wall seats during the election campaign - how many people on how many doorsteps knew exactly how their Labour MP had voted on all of these issues.“It didn’t matter... that they had actually rebelled the Labour whip a number of times, people knew all the other times that they’d voted to kind of block Brexit if you like, so to speak in their cases.“So these votes do carry weight and people do watch them.“That’s what I would urge colleagues to think about really.”Put to her that abstaining was not an option on this vote, Powell replied: “I don’t think so, I think you’ve got to have a strong position on it, even if that’s difficult.“But obviously whipping decisions and the decision on how we’ll vote on it hasn’t yet been taken and it’s above my pay grade. But yeah I think it’s better to be strong on these things.”If the choice is a deal or no-deal, then a deal is obviously in the national interestLabour leader Keir StarmerEarlier, Starmer told reporters: “We’ll have a look at that deal as soon as we see it and make our decisions then, but I can’t emphasise enough how a deal is in the national interest.“We don’t know that there will be a deal – I hope there will.“As soon as there’s a deal we’ll look at it, but if the choice is a deal or no-deal, then a deal is obviously in the national interest.“The Labour Party has pulled together hugely in the last few months, presenting a strong united front, and we will do the same on this issue.“Of course there are different opinions, as you would expect, but we will pull together, discuss it as a team and be united.”It came as Jacob Rees-Mogg confirmed the controversial Internal Market Bill would return to the Commons on Monday.It remains to be seen whether the government will try to reinsert law-breaking clauses that would allow ministers to renege on the Withdrawal Agreement Johnson signed with the EU earlier this year.Any such move would be highly provocative with negotiations on a trade deal drawing to a close.And it is believed that a decision rests on whether the UK and EU reach a deal in the coming days on future trade arrangements.Related...

Iran says it will comply with nuclear deal if Biden lifts all sanctions
Foreign minister calls on US to ‘show its good faith’ but appears to rule out renegotiating dealIran will come back into full compliance with its nuclear deal immediately after an incoming Joe Biden administration proves its bona fides by lifting all sanctions, the country’s foreign minister has said.Setting out the parameters for a new relationship with the US, Javad Zarif also said Iran would not require the US to rejoin the deal, known as the joint comprehensive plan of action (JCPoA), before lifting its sanctions, but would need some kind of assurance that once it has rejoined a Biden administration would not simply leave the deal again in the same way Donald Trump did.

Can the superhero movie survive the Covid-era switch to streaming?
As Wonder Woman 1984 heads for front rooms at the same time as it hits cinema screens, the future of expensive blockbusters is in the balanceWonder Woman’s origin myth is well known: Princess Diana of Themyscira quits her beloved fantasy island of Amazonian warrior women and sets out into the human world to help save us from our worst instincts, like a sort of kick-ass female Jesus in red, blue and gold. You might think Gal Gadot’s battling goddess would be better off heading home, given we’re in the middle of a pandemic, otherwise it probably won’t be long until she needs a little saving herself, along with all the other superhero movies out there.Covid 19’s ability to shutter cinemas worldwide could fundamentally alter the way these big-budget productions are put together in future. It was reported this week that forthcoming sequel Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first film screened in 4K Ultra HD on the new US streaming service HBO Max, from Christmas Day. It’s also heading to cinemas at the same time (fans outside the US won’t have the streaming option for now), but whether anyone really feels like heading out to a multiplex with the virus raging and temperatures plunging when they can simply download an app and watch in the comfort of their own home remains to be seen.

Manchild Gavin Williamson plumbs new depths of stupidity | John Crace
Education secretary might like to compare global coronavirus death rates after ‘UK is best’ drivelMuch to everyone’s surprise, we have learned that Boris Johnson can – just occasionally – engage his brain before speaking. Having begun the Wednesday night Downing Street press briefing with his usual mangled militaristic and jingoistic metaphors about “the searchlights of science” and Britain having pioneered vaccination in the 18th century, he actually twice refrained from saying that Brexit was responsible for the UK being the first country to license the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. Just imagine. A prime minister known for being a lying, opportunistic chancer actually decided to tell the truth for once.Would that the same could be said for some of his cabinet colleagues. Only on Wednesday, Matt Hancock and Jacob Rees-Mogg had described the vaccine as a Brexit bonus. On Thursday, Gavin Williamson, the education secretary manchild who has yet to move up to secondary school level and whose career since winning Fireplace Salesman of the Year two years running in 2006 and 2007 has been a mystery to us all, ratcheted up the nationalism to a new level. Asked by LBC’s Nick Ferrari if Brexit had meant that the UK got the vaccine ahead of the EU and the US, Gav went rogue. Continue reading...
