• Is Frank Field trying to fill the vacuum left by the implosion of UKIP?
    When Frank Field appeared on BBC’s Sunday Politics he repeatedly said he would not betray the “Northern Labour voters” who opted for Leave. What about the two thirds of Labour voters who voted Remain?
    What was most disturbing was his seeming indifference to workers for firms such as Vauxhall and Unilever, which are considering transferring jobs out of Wirral in the wake of the Brexit vote.
    As his fellow Labour MP Stella Creasy pointed out, Brexit is going to have the greatest impact on those on the lowest income. “Northern Labour Voters” in Birkenhead won’t thank Mr Field when further austerity caused by Brexit leads to even greater cuts in public services.
    There is a vacancy for a leader of UKIP, but the people of Birkenhead did not expect their MP to be positioning himself for the role.

    Lib Dems: Survey shows growing public anger at Conservatives' mishandling of Brexit

    A survey by Kantar Public, published today (Sunday, 18 February), has found that 56% of the public judge the Conservatives' handling of Berexit as poor or very poor.
    Responding, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:

    "Whether people are for or against Brexit, there is clearly growing anger that the Conservatives are badly mishandling negotiations. Warring factions in the Conservative Party mean the prospect of sensible negotiations have long since disappeared.

    "This is why there is growing support for the Liberal Democrat policy of a vote on the terms of the deal, with the option of an exit from Brexit."
