• how i voted on ‘indicative votes’ tonight

    This is how I voted tonight in the House of Commons on ‘indicative votes’ on a series of Brexit options about the basis on which Britain leaves the European Union.
    All of them are far from perfect, and in my view none of them are as good as the deal Britain has now as a member of the European Union.
    But Parliament needs to find a way forward and MPs need to show leadership, compromise and try to bring the country back together.
    I voted for negotiating to leave on the basis of Labour’s alternative approach, a customs union, ’Norway 2.0’ and for a confirmatory public vote on any deal.
    I voted against the economic catastrophe that would be caused by leaving with no-deal.
