Nicola Sturgeon asks opponents to back second independence referendum - BBC News
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has challenged Scotland's Labour and Lib Dem leaders to consider backing a second vote on Scottish independence. The plea came after Kezia Dugdale and Willie Rennie said their members could campaign for independence. Ms Sturgeon said she welcomed what her opponents had said but she found it a "curious tactic". Both Labour and the Lib Dems said the first minister should concentrate on her party's record in government. SNP leader Ms Sturgeon believes there should be a further referendum on Scottish independence if there is growing support for leaving the UK or there is a "material change" in UK politics. [...] She spoke out after Ms Dugdale said there was "no denying that 30% of Labour voters voted 'Yes' in the referendum" and that she wanted to lead a party "that is comfortable with people who voted 'Yes' and 'No' backing our values of creating a fair and more equal society for everyone".

It’s the British establishment that has a problem with democracy | Seumas Milne | Comment is free | The Guardian
‘Rewarding major donors with seats in parliament and jobs in government is a long-established British tradition.’ [...] But political corruption and the implacable opposition of the spooks and military to progressive change are the traditional forms of anti-democratic politics, in Britain, as elsewhere. For the past generation it has been the corporate embrace, the revolving doors, the privatised contracts, the “free trade” treaties, European Union directives, and the removal of economics from democratic control under the neoliberal rules of the game that have set the boundaries of acceptable politics. [ Jeremy Corbyn is a symptom/backlash to the status quo ] Since the 2008 crash the rejection of that broken economic model and the hollowed-out politics that reflects it has spread across the western world, now including Britain. Which helps explain why Cameron’s Conservatives have turned to the most retrograde measures to bring opposition to heel. //&! bit.ly/1FWK86Y

Jeremy Corbyn: Labour will campaign for UK to stay in the EU | Politics | The Guardian
McFadden stressed he did not believe Cameron was seeking to undermine those rights in his talks with his EU partners, but recognises that Corbyn is deeply concerned at what he regards is a shift from a social Europe to a free-market Europe. He said: “If the prime minister tries to water down hard won employment protections that would be wrong and foolhardy on his part and we would very strongly oppose it. But if he does try to water down these protections, the right response is not to leave the EU but to fight the 2020 election on a clear commitment to restore those employment rights – and we have to remain in the EU to do that.”
