Too late by then. They derailed it during the IVs, at which point there was still a slender chance something could be salvaged from the wreckage. By the time the party then came to support it, trust was gone, people were bored and even a chunk of Remainers just wanted Brexit done. (Personally, I wish Labour had thrown its weight behind CM2 or hijacked the first major post-Brexit LD policy of “single market at the least”. Alas.)

"Sally Rooney has turned down an offer from the Israeli publisher that translated her two previous novels into Hebrew, due to her stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict."

Seems like a political act to me, and this is the Political Thread...

CalHab:
Meanwhile, the UK government's Coronavirus response is deemed the worst public health failure in history and it barely gets traction in the news cycle. I understand the coronavirus fatigue, but tens of thousands dying unnecessarily as a result of poor decisions seems kind of important.
