Corbyn Doubles Down on Venezuela

Jez is back from his cycling holiday in Croatia; asked specifically whether he condemns President Maduro’s actions, he says:

“What I condemn is the violence that’s been done by any side and all sides in this.”

As expected…

UPDATE: “Both Sides”

UPDATE: Labour NEC member Jasmin Beckett says Corbyn’s position on Venezuela “isn’t good enough”.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
