Jeremy Corbyn led the fight against No Deal in last week’s parliamentary vote, bringing with him the bulk of the opposition parties– and against the overwhelming majority of the Tory party.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has detailed plans for rapid, ambitious and socially transformational climate action to deliver the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Climate Agreement, starting from the moment a Labour Government takes office.
The entire media, the Tory party and the Labour right were gleefully prepared for a Labour defeat in the Peterborough by-election, which they intended to exploit ruthlessly to further undermine Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party.
The Danish General Election on 5 June resulted in a defeat for the ‘blue bloc’, the centre-right governing alliance that had been in office since 2015, and a victory for the ‘red bloc’, the centre-left parties.

On 27 May, during his visit to Tokyo, US President Trump told reporters that Iran “has a chance to be a great country with the same leadership”. He added “I’m not looking to hurt Iran at all.

No nuclear weapons for Iran and I think we will make a deal.” Given that just days before he had threatened to “end” Iran, this may seem a remarkable turnaround.
