Jon Lansman, the founder of Momentum, has said he will use his new position on Labour's key decision-making body to push for sweeping changes to the party's campaigning, mirroring the strategy pushed by his grassroots activist group.

The party leader reiterated his call for MPs to have a "meaningful vote" on the final Brexit deal. We have set down our lines on that which are about democratic accountability. The case for a complete break from the European Union was no longer being made, even by pro-Brexit MPs in parliament, he said.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has questioned the value of Britain's "special relationship" with the USA, suggesting Washington is not actually the UK's 'most important ally, ' while criticizing Trump's 'endless offensive remarks'.

Speaking on ITV's Peston on Sunday programme, Mr Corbyn insisted that remaining in the single market would not respect the outcome of the 2016 referendum.

But he said the existing arrangements needed improvement.

The First Minister accused Mr Corbyn of seeking to "mislead people" by persisting with "inaccurate" comments.

Green Party co-leader, Caroline Lucas, said: "What happens this year in Parliament will have huge and lasting repercussions for the country - which is why we're putting party differences aside and working alongside each other".

Mr Corbyn said that he was not calling for a second referendum.

On the 's Andrew Marr show, Ms Thornbery was asked about demands for a second nationwide vote.

"The leader's office could do whatever they wanted, technically, but the unions are still extremely influential", one source said.

'But, at the moment, and as things now stand, we proceed in good faith, we do as we are instructed and we are leaving the European Union.

Here we go again.

Conservative deputy chairman James Cleverly said the two Labour politicians had "failed to rule out a second referendum".

"This amendment is a significant step in the fight against Brexit, demonstrating the increased willingness of parties to work together formally rather than just behind the scenes", said Sir Vince.

Nigel Farage today makes a dramatic admission that the vote for Brexit could be overturned because Remainers have seized control of the argument over Britain's future relationship with the EU.

"This amendment would not keep the United Kingdom in the single market and customs union, nor does it intend to deal with the serious flaws in this Bill", they said.

"Also the trading relationships we have around the world with obviously the European Union, but also with India and China and the rest of the world are very important".

"The biggest disappointment of Donald Trump is - apart from his endless offensive remarks about women, about minorities and about different faiths - is his failure to support worldwide institutions like the United Nations and like Unesco", he said.

Time taken for the United Kingdom to invite a new USA president for a state visit.

She told the magazine: "I think the resilience I've got from always having a chaotic, feral existence has actually helped me".
