‘It would have to be a credible choice that’s real’ – @jeremycorbyn discusses his ‘enthusiasm’ for a second referendum but says his priority is making sure that the UK doesn’t ‘crash out’ of Europe on March 29. #RidgeFor more, head here: https://t.co/KpKvynnkfY pic.twitter.com/L5CMe3qHke— Ridge on Sunday (@RidgeOnSunday) March 17, 2019Jeremy Corbyn was interviewed by Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday. This is what we learnt…1. Labour is still campaigning for its Brexit plan.Every time Jeremy Corbyn was asked about Labour’s Brexit policy, he described the party’s alternative plan to Sky’s Sophy Ridge. On the “five points” set out in his amendment tabled in February, and originally in a letter to the Prime Minister, the opposition leader said: “I’m reaching out to MPs across all parties to discuss those at the moment.”Then, describing “our proposals of a customs union, market access and guaranteeing rights and environment and consumer protections” as “the credible ones”, he reiterated: “that’s what we’re putting forward”.2. But Labour is set to support an amendment proposing another referendum.Although the leadership had promised to back a ‘people’s vote’ amendment at the second meaningful vote, the People’s Vote campaign recommended that the move be delayed. It was widely recognised that it would otherwise have been heavily defeated in parliament – and possibly taken off the table as a result.It is now expected that Labour will make the move this week, when MPs vote on Theresa May’s deal for a third time, in the form of ‘Kyle/Wilson’ – an amendment tabled by Labour backbenchers Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson. Asked whether he would be whipping in favour of it, Corbyn replied: “If the amendment is as I have just set out, then, yes, we will be supporting it. But we’ve obviously got to see the wording of it, and Peter and Phil are discussing that.”It was unclear in the interview what had just been “set out” as terms for agreeing to the amendment. But it is understood that the Labour leadership would prefer not to support May’s deal, but to withhold support (and abstain in the vote) on the condition that it is put to a ‘confirmatory ballot’. Kyle and Wilson’s Guardian piece tells us that their amendment will take this shape.3. Jeremy Corbyn’s “enthusiasm” for another referendum will continue to be doubted.“Are you enthusiastic about a second referendum?” Ridge asked. “I’m enthusiastic – I’m enthusiastic about getting a deal with Europe which guarantees our future trading relationship and protects jobs and industries in this country,” Corbyn replied. “And I do think… I do think people should have a choice on that.” His reply, which referred to securing a deal rather than the possibility of stopping Brexit, sparked criticism.4. Blocking ‘no deal’ is the priority.Labour’s support for its alternative Brexit plan and another referendum, plus its discussions with MPs about Common Market 2.0, is all about making prevention of a ‘no deal’ Brexit the priority.5. Corbyn could vote to leave in a new referendum.Asked whether he would vote to remain, Corbyn replied: “It depends what the choice is in front of us. If we’ve got a good deal in which we can have a dynamic relationship with Europe, which is all the trading relationships and so on, then that might be a good way forward that unites the country.”When the question was repeated, he confirmed: “It depends what the relationship is we’ve agreed in the future.” His answers imply that he could very well campaign to leave if Labour’s alternative plan were on the ballot paper (rather than May’s deal).6. We can expect another no-confidence motion soon.Noting that the government reportedly intends to bring its deal back to a third meaningful vote this week, which it is widely expected to lose again, Corbyn said: “I think at that point a confidence motion will be appropriate. I think at that point we should say there has to be a general election.”Pressed further on the timing, he added: “We’ll obviously decide the exact moment, but quite obviously we don’t have confidence in this government’s ability and indeed parliament doesn’t.”7. Ken Clarke may be Corbyn’s favourite Tory.“Are there any Conservative MPs that you particularly admire?” Ridge inquired. “I think there’s… well, I suppose I’ve known Kenneth Clarke for so long and we’ve disagreed on so many things for so long, we actually personally get along okay.”8. Corbyn would prefer a short extension to Article 50.“It’s tight, but I think it’s possible to do what’s necessary during that time,” Corbyn said of a three-month delay to Brexit. “A longer extension has legal complications concerning membership of the EU and European elections. So the impression I got from the EU was they were not keen on extending beyond June.”Supporters of a fresh public vote may be concerned about Corbyn’s reluctance to back a longer extension, as this would be required for parliament to legislate for a referendum.Tags:Labour /Jeremy Corbyn /
13 Labour MPs voted against removing Mike Gapes and Ian Austin, who have both left the Labour Party, from the foreign affairs committee in parliament.On Tuesday evening, Labour put forward a motion to remove the independent MPs, and it was passed by 199 votes to 134 – a majority of 65.The move caused controversy, as some argued that select committees should be independent, not party political. Austin described it as “vindictive”.But commenting on the motion, a Labour spokesperson said: “Select committee and delegation places are allocated on the basis of the size of parties at the general election.“It’s only right that the Labour Party fills its allocation – just as every other party does – and gives a voice to Labour voters in parliament.”Austin and Gapes will be replaced by Labour MPs Conor McGinn and Catherine West on the foreign affairs committee.It is expected that Chris Leslie, who also left Labour last month to join The Independent Group, will soon face removal from the international trade select committee.13 Labour MPs voted against Labour’s motion:Adrian BaileyKevin BarronChris BryantAnn ClwydLouise EllmanPaul FarrellyJim FitzpatrickMargaret HodgeDavid LammySteve McCabeSiobhain McDonaghIan MurrayWes StreetingTags:Labour /The Independent Group /
Tags: arts Share this: FacebookTwitterRedditemail,0% 0% Fernández later learned that the maker of the wall of dreaming was an Oakland-based graffiti artist, Mike “Dream” Francisco, who was killed in an attempted robbery in 2000. Five years ago, Fernández set out to elevate the message over the hillside for all to see.Though Fernández always had immigrants in mind alongside the others she was encouraging to dream, the work is painfully timely now. The federal government recently announced that the documentation program for immigrants who were brought to the country as children, DACA, would be ended. That leaves thousands of immigrants who rely on this documentation to work, often called “Dreamers,” in a difficult and uncertain position.“This piece is for them; this piece is for the Dreamers, and for us to question who is able to dream,” Fernández said. By nature of its conception and construction, however, the piece is also made for and by its community members. Rebeka Rodriguez, Civic Engagement Manager at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, went to nearby Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School and Bessie Carmichael Elementary School and helped develop a program that drew students into the themes of the piece. Through artist residencies at the school, artists developed multiple parallel curricula for students to explore the themes of the DREAM installation in architecture, theater poetry and music.In one case, they were tasked with solving a problem through design work, while in another, a class developed a book of poems.In the songwriting curriculum, students tackled the more difficult aspects of dreaming — they were writing the lyrics to a song called “Big Dreams” last fall, immediately after the election.“The song is going to be about their dreams, but as they were writing the lyrics right after the election, it inevitably also included nightmares,” Rodriguez said.Eventually, students were also offered the chance to participate in assembling the massive artwork, which spans more than 70 feet in width and includes about 1,000 shiny aluminum scales. When students in an a capella group were working at Gizmo Art Productions, where the piece was fabricated, Fernández asked them to participate in a ritual: They sang their song to the installation as they assembled it, as an offering.On Friday, the song “Big Dreams” will be performed by students at an unveiling ceremony for the piece. The piece has been installed on a city-owned piece of land on the hill above the Alemany Food Market to spark thought and conversation.“As people are arriving, I think it’s really appropriate,” Rodriguez said. “Being able to curate this piece into existence and really design these residencies at the school and figure out how to incorporate mostly marginalized voices into a larger conversation feels really important.”An unveiling ceremony will be held Friday, September 22 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Alemany Farmer’s Market.Installation of the DREAM sculpture.

It looks like reflections on water or the grass moving,” said Ana Teresa Fernández, the artist behind the piece. Fernández had been commuting by car for years between her Bernal Heights home and her Bayview studio, and each day would pass a semi-hidden aesthetic marvel: A building completely covered in someone’s graffiti tag, “Dream.” “I would drive by it every day, and would look up and see it, and was like, wow, Dream. It made me have this moment … where I would kind of check in with myself,” she said. “I wish this just echoed and rumbled a little higher over the hillside.”
JON Wilkin, Jonny Lomax and James Roby have been named in England’s 32-man Elite Training Squad.They join Paul Clough, Gary Wheeler, Mark Flanagan and Lee Gaskell who are included in the England Knights set up.The ETS squad includes 19 players who were involved in the 2011 Gillette Four Nations and eight players who are uncapped by England, including Catalan Dragons’ Torquay-born hooker Ian Henderson who has been in outstanding form this season in the Stobart Super League.There is also a return to the England squad for Wigan Warriors forward Gareth Hock, who last played on the international stage in June 2009 when England defeated France 66-12 in Paris.The ETS players will meet up at their Loughborough base next week alongside the England Knights squad and there will be a further four camps throughout this year including a 10-day high altitude camp in the autumn.“Over the past 12 months we have made excellent progress throughout our international programme,” said McNamara. “We now have a long term plan with our programme of activity in place for the next two years. This approach, as we continue to build up to the Rugby League World Cup, gives me and the players’ clarity and a clear structure.“We have two very exciting squads that can build on last year’s efforts on reaching the Gillette Four Nations final. In addition I am monitoring on a weekly basis our eight Australian based players, who will play a pivotal role in our plans. Our aim now is to retain the current crop of players and realise our ambition of winning the Rugby League World Cup in 2013.”The average age of the ETS is just 26.8 while the average of the Knights is 22.6.England will start their 2012 campaign with two matches against the Exiles in the summer and an international triangular series in the autumn against European counterparts France and Wales.The first origin game will take place on Saturday June 16 with the second on Wednesday July 4.England, Wales and France will play an International Triangular Series in October and November.England Knights will play Ireland in June and will join Ireland, Italy and Scotland in the Alitalia Cup in the autumn.2012 England Elite Training Squad:Carl Ablett: Leeds Rhinos, Hunslet ParksideRyan Bailey: Leeds Rhinos, MilfordChris Bridge: Warrington Wolves, WaterheadTom Briscoe: Hull FC, Featherstone LionsDanny Brough: Huddersfield Giants, Eastmoor DragonsRob Burrow :Leeds Rhinos, Featherstone LionsGarreth Carvell: Warrington Wolves, StanningleyJosh Charnley: Wigan Warriors, Wigan St PatricksRangi Chase: Castleford Tigers, Dannevirke TigersEorl Crabtree: Huddersfield Giants, Huddersfield YMCALeroy Cudjoe: Huddersfield Giants, Newsome PanthersRyan Hall: Leeds Rhinos, Oulton RaidersZak Hardaker: Leeds Rhinos, Featherstone LionsIan Henderson: Catalan Dragons, TerrigalGareth Hock: Wigan Warriors, Wigan St JudesBen Jones-Bishop: Leeds Rhinos, QueensJamie Jones-Buchanan: Leeds Rhinos, StanningleyJonny Lomax: St Helens, Orrell St JamesDanny McGuire: Leeds Rhinos, East LeedsMichael McIlorum: Wigan Warriors, QueensAdrian Morley: Warrington Wolves, EcclesLee Mossop: Wigan Warriors, HensinghamSean O’Loughlin: Wigan Warriors, Wigan St PatricksJamie Peacock: (captain) Leeds Rhinos, StanningleyJames Roby: St Helens, BlackbrookKevin Sinfield: Leeds Rhinos, WaterheadSam Tomkins: Wigan Warriors.

A FANTASTIC try from Tony Puletua handed Saints a late 34-28 over Hull KR at Langtree Park on Friday.He finished off a tumultuous Francis Meli run to finally end a dramatic comeback from the visitors – and lift his side to third in the Stobart Super League table.Before then, Rovers had wiped out a 26-0 deficit.Doubles for Paul Wellens and Josh Jones, plus Jonny Lomax’ 13th of the season had a jaded Hull KR searching for answers.But they found them with three tries in the final 10 minutes of the half to rock Saints on their heels.In the second half, Scott Taylor grabbed his second to make it game on before Blake Green forged the Robins ahead.But Anthony Laffranchi took advantage of a quick play the ball to rip the lead back once again.And it was left to TP – who was simply class throughout – to seal a dramatic victory.Saints kept faith with the majority of the players that beat Salford – Lance Hohaia missing out through injury and being replaced by Lee Gaskell. Josh Perry also returned after missing the win in Manchester.But it was the magic of the Jonny Lomax that got the home side on the board; skipping through on the last tackle after just six minutes.Paul Wellens grabbed the side’s second four minutes later – again benefitting from great work and a delayed pass from Lomax.It got better on 17 minutes as Lee Gaskell’s chip through took a lucky deflection and Wello scooped up.Tommy Makinson adding his second of the night.Josh Jones then got his ninth of the season as he snaffled up a four-pointer after Rovers failed to deal with a bouncing ball.And on 25 minutes Saints had their fifth of the night. Hull KR were right on Saints line but an error was picked off by Tony Puletua.From there, he broke the line, got the ball to Meli who turned the defence inside out before flipping a superb pass to Jones for his second of the night.At 26-0 Saints were rampant and there were no real concerns when Scott Taylor took advantage of a bouncing pass and an unlikely gap – goaled by Michael Dobson.But when Sam Latus profited from another home error to make it 26-10 and then he grabbed another seconds later to leave Hull KR just 10 points behind at half time, the sirens were sounding.Saints couldn’t get out of their 20 in the opening stages of the second half and Taylor notched his second after a bulldozing run.And the comeback was complete as after the home side were harshly done for a penalty they failed to clear a kick and Josh Hodgson profited.Dobson added his fourth of the night and it gave his side an unlikely lead.Saints could have regained the momentum moments later but Meli was just bundled into touch by Green and Graeme Horne.But it was perhaps a sign of what was to come as Anthony Laffranchi took advantage of James Roby’s brilliant play from dummy half with less than 10 minutes remaining.Then the win was signed off in resounding fashion.Meli picked the ball up inside his own half, swotted away three would be tacklers but was halted short of the line.From the play the ball, TP does what he does best – heading to the line with speed and power and he crossed with three on his back.Superb.Match Summary:Saints:Tries: Lomax, Wellens (2), Jones (2), Laffranchi, PuletuaGoals: Makinson (3 from 7)Hull KR:Tries: Taylor (2).

A STIRRING and brave second half comeback wasn’t enough as Saints went down 29-16 at Langtree Park.In front of packed stadium, they overturned scored 16 unanswered points but agonisingly couldn’t drag it level.The damage was done in the first half as Warrington raced to a 22-0 lead within 26 minutes.Lee Briers was at his imperious best as he dragged his side around the park and had a hand in their first two tries.His kick to Joel Monaghan was class and further scores from Rhys Evans, Mickey Higham and Trent Waterhouse underlined their dominance.But Saints clawed their way back into it and tries from Jordan Turner and Adam Swift gave them a big say in the destination of the two points.Jonny Lomax dragged Saints right back into it on 57 minutes as Saints pummelled the Wolves’ line.But a Briers’ drop goal took the visitors’ lead to seven points and that took the sting out of the home side’s recovery.Saints – with only one change from the side that beat Warrington – got off to a slow start and found themselves under pressure on both their opening sets.And it was Briers who capitalised, chipping early in their second set to Joel Monaghan who plucked the ball out of the air and touched downIt was hardly the best start for Saints who looked ponderous under the Wolves ‘in your face’ defence.And it got worse – Rhys Evans scoring on Warrington’s next set as the visitor’s broke down the middle.Saints forced a dropout on ten minutes after Stuart Howarth improvised on the last but the Wolves quelled the danger.And five minutes later Mickey Higham was adjudged to have put the ball down after a high ball and a number of ricochets – but it seemed pretty harsh on Saints.Ratchford adding the second of his conversions.Saints were struggling to make any headway but did force a drop out when Jordan Turner jarred the ball loose with a massive hit.But the ball went to ground seconds later and on 23 minutes Rhys Evans was within inches of getting his second.Saints didn’t heed the warning and within a minute Simon Grix set up Trent Waterhouse with the easiest of grubbers.The home side needed something big and they got it on 29 minutes. They forced a knock on and Jordan Turner produced a powerful run to get Saints on the board.Jonny Lomax converting.Saints continued to pile on the pressure but were guilty of overplaying at times whilst Warrington’s pack tackling rocked them on their heels.But as the half time hooter got ready to sound, fast hands saw the ball go left through Sia Soliola, Lomax and Francis Meli for Adam Swift to cross.In the second half Saints won the ball back from the kick off and Hohaia was inches away.Jonny Lomax looked to be hit high by Mike Cooper and then another high shot on Alex Walmsley was ignored.But Warrington got a penalty of their own and Saints had to be very sharp to quell a Briers’ chip.Three penalties though landed Saints right on Warrington’s line and they sandwiched a repeat set too.Hohaia was held up over the line but Lomax made no mistake as he took a wonderful Manu pass to underline Saints’ dominance of the second half.Lomax converting from the touchline to make it a six point game.Saints chanced their arm a couple of times to get on level terms but couldn’t find a way through – and Briers extended the lead by a point on 66 minutes.That took the pace out of the game and try as they might, the home side just couldn’t find a way back.Garreth Carvell crossing late on.Match Summary:Saints: Tries: Turner, Swift, LomaxGoals: Lomax (2 from 3)Wolves: Tries: Monaghan.

As it was they had to disband their Reserves side which is why we’ve been able to call on so many this season in times of need.So what was always going to be a hard game was given extra spice with no less than six of the Robins having lined up for the Saints this season and determined to do well for their parent side.But it was one of their first team squad Thomas Minns who opened the scoring sprinting 90 metres after picking up a knock on missed by the referee from a Saints attack.The Saints hit back as Matty Costello showed a clean pair of heels to the defensive line sprinting around them to the corner. This after an attempted 40/20 by Danny Richardson was helped into touch by the Rovers full back.The Saints took the lead just before the half hour with a surprisingly easy run to the line from dummy half by Aaron Smith. The Saints had been put into an attacking position with a great run out of defence from Jake Spedding and a mazy run across the line from Kev Brown.But the last ten minutes belonged to Rovers as the Saints respect for possession hit an all-time low with wild passes being thrown in our own 20 metre area.They scored two tries from Joe Cator and Adam Rooks to go in six points to the good.Having said that the Saints completion rate was poor earlier, they started the second half completing only two from seven sets the last being an uncontrolled hack on from Danny Richardson from Jack Ashworth’s poor pass off the floor.As a result Rovers were growing in confidence and increased their lead when hooker Tom Jubb ran in from dummy half unopposed.From the restart Rovers knocked on in their own 20. From the scrum on the left quick hands from left to right from Richardson found Ricky Bailey who ignored the great dummy run from Mike Weldon finding his winger and Kev Brown acrobatically did the rest.The messages from the coaching staff finally seemed to percolate through to the players and the Saints started to turn the screw.Led by the magnificent Matty Lees they pounded the tiring Rovers pack and it was Lees who scored next.A great exit set from the Saints own 20 saw Chris Follin taking it on 20 metres and four further drives one from Matty Lees saw the big prop end up taking Richardson’s pass and dragging three over with him.Richardson’s conversion put the Saints within two points with 10 minutes left.Rovers were visibly wilting in the bright sun and the Saints again rolled 80 metres up field after a clearance kick with Bailey, Spedding and Costello each making big metres.On the last Richardson grubbered the ball to the posts, it hit the pads, ricocheted around amongst the five players in attendance only for Jonah Cunningham to pounce for the decisive try.There was still time for the Saints to try to throw it away by missing the short kick-off but they managed to survive with Aaron Smith pulling off a miraculous tackle on Graeme Horne under the sticks when a try seemed on the cards.Coaches Talbot and Wellens were at pains to point out at the conclusion what a difference finishing with nine out of nine completed sets makes and how much easier it would be if they could do it all the time.This was a fantastic advertisement for the whole Reserves concept. Richardson showed glimpses of his talent and Mike Weldon played long and hard but the stand out competitor for the Saints, playing all but seven minutes, was Matty Lees.Match Summary:Hull KR: Tries: Tom Minns (3), Joe Cator (34), Adam Rooks (38), Tom Jubb (59).
