Getting a little confused with people asking whether I’ve resigned. I made that announcement 8 weeks ago - when I said that because of our differences on Brexit and prorogation, I wouldn’t be able to serve in a Boris Johnson cabinet...🤔

The last time an incoming prime minister was met with pre-emptive resignations because of his unsuitability was Douglas-Home in 1963. The refuseniks were led by the brilliant Iain Macleod Douglas-Home lasted in No 10 for 364 days, the shortest tenure since the war

“We will take the party back for true, decent, social democratic values” Labour peer says it should be those responsible for anti-Semitism who leave the party; not those protesting against it who feel they must quit
