Liz Kendall's speech in emergency Brexit debate

Watch my speech in the emergency debate on extending Article 50: It is dangerous for the Prime Minister to attack MPs over delays to Brexit. It is our job to question, scrutinise and stand up for what we believe in. Pitting MPs against the people puts our parliamentary democracy at risk. Read my full speech here: http://bit.ly/2JtYTsA

On 20th March I spoke in Labour’s emergency debate on the Government’s plans to extend Article 50.  I argued that any delay to the date the UK leaves the EU should be used to be straight with the public about the choices and trade-offs Brexit inevitably brings.  I also warned the Prime Minister against attacking MPs over delays to Brexit. It is our job to question, scrutinise and stand up for what we believe in. Pitting MPs against the people puts our parliamentary democracy at risk. You can read my full speech here.

I was interviewed about Theresa May’s catastrophic failure of leadership on BBC Two’s Newsnight. You can watch a clip of the show here, or catch up on the whole show here.
