    Last night the Conservative Government was defeated in the House of Lords, with peers voting for a Liberal Democrat-backed amendment that will prevent the death penalty being used in cases where the UK has provided electronic data.

    The death penalty is cruel, inhumane and irreversible. The UK must oppose its use anywhere in the world.

    In July 2016, in the aftermath of the referendum, the Liberal Democrats were a lone voice calling for a final say on whatever deal was done on Brexit.

    Today, an estimated 700,000 people marched on the streets of London, calling for a people's vote on Brexit.

    That makes it the biggest protest since the Iraq War.

    On Saturday, during the People's Vote march in London, activists will be given a piece of Labour's Brexit fudge - reminding them that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour party is fudging its position on giving the people a final say on Brexit.

    Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour leadership have defied us all with their 'Brexit fudge'. Inspired by Willy Wonka himself, the Labour's opposition to Brexit is just 'pure imagination'.

    This 'Brexit fudge' will stick in the throat of most Labour voters. Given the damage Brexit will cause, Labour's failure to oppose this Tory mess will be difficult to stomach.

    But for Brexiters, Chef Corbyn's 'Brexit fudge' will have them salivating. It will make their Brexit dreams that much sweeter. Indeed, it will go well with a glass of Raab's confusing concoction and the Eton mess being served up by Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg.
