We need to be very careful. Democracy is the issue, and democracy ought to be the means by which we decide these issues, rather than secret negotiations resulting in a fait accompli being presented to us.
Let's defend the principle of a society that cares for everyone and everyone cares for everyone else.
Quotes from the news wire:
The revelations about [accused sex offender Jeffrey] Epstein are appalling and I think we should start with the principle that there some victims here - desperate young women who were abominably and appallingly treated, nobody is above the law and anybody who has committed something should be open to questioning and investigation about it.
I am leading the party, I am proud to lead the party, I am proud of the democracy of the party and of course I will go along with whatever decision the party comes to, we will put both views to the British people and say look this is the best deal we could get, (and) this is the remain and hopefully the reform option.
Theresa May has now accepted what the country has known for months : Theresa May can not govern, and nor can her divided and disintegrating party, the Conservative Party has utterly failed the country over Brexit and is unable to improve people's lives or deal with their most pressing needs. Parliament is deadlocked and the Conservatives offer no solutions to the other major challenges facing our country.
We're ready to talk to the government and others in parliament about a sensible alternative plan, but not while Theresa May is wasting 171,000 pounds ($220,000) an hour of taxpayers' money on dangerous and unnecessary no-deal brinkmanship, if the prime minister is serious about finding a solution that can command support in parliament and bring our country together, she must listen to the majority of MPs (lawmakers), as well as members of her own cabinet, and take 'no deal' off the table.

I decided to invite Donald Trump on his visit to Britain to come with me to my constituency because he has problems with Mexicans and he has problems with Muslims, as you know my wife is Mexican and my constituency is very, very multi-cultural so what I was going to do was go down to the mosque with him and let him talk to people there.
Going to war creates a legacy of bitterness and problems, let us be a force for change in the world, a force for humanity in the world, a force for peace in the world, and a force that recognizes we can not go on like this, with grotesque levels of global inequality, grotesque threats to our environment all around the world, without the rich and powerful governments stepping up to the plate to make sure our world becomes safer and better -- and those people don't end up in poverty, in refugee camps, wasting their lives away.
It's been fascinating - and exhilarating - watching this movement mushroom over the last few weeks, this campaign is about spreading a message of hope and change based on the central choice - five years or more of continued austerity, or a plan for investment and growth that stands up for the majority.
I think we should talk about what the objectives of the party are, whether that's restoring the Clause Four as it was originally written or it's a different one, but I think we shouldn't shy away from public participation, public investment in industry, i would want us to have a set of objectives which does include public ownership of some necessary things such as rail.
