The FEPS-Fabian Summer conference will focus on both domestic and international policy priorities for the next Labour government, examine the impact of the European elections, and will ask what comes next in the Brexit process.
GURINDER JHANS: As Brexit dominates the legislative agenda and the government machinery has become preoccupied and paralysed with leaving the EU, social mobility efforts have stalled.
ANAND MENON: Politicians are struggling to attract support in a nation where how you feel about Brexit matters more than anything else but there is a way of overcoming the tribalism.
DIANNE HAYTER: The breakaway by the Independent Group is the most serious split in Labour since the SDP was formed. Big lessons need to be learned by the party from what went on then.
ANDREW HARROP: Labour has been right to seek a compromise on Brexit. But the divisions within the party and beyond now run deep.
Since the referendum was announced through to the Brexit negotiations, politicians and commentators have failed to predict which way the wind is blowing. Is Richard Corbett the exception? Kate Murray talks to Labour’s leader in the European parliament.
