first_imgOur readers are split almost equally over whether Jeremy Corbyn should back another EU referendum, the latest LabourList survey has found.The Labour leader has come under significant pressure to support a fresh public vote over the last few months, with polls by YouGov in September and by an academic study earlier this month showing that party members overwhelmingly favour the idea.But the latest weekly survey, which attracted 7,224 responses over three days, found that a slim majority of 50.2% believed Corbyn should not support another vote, while 49.8% believed he should.The survey also found that a majority of LabourList readers (55.6%) considered ‘no Brexit’ to be “the best outcome”, preferring it to Corbyn’s plan for a Brexit deal.Almost 40% chose Corbyn’s alternative Brexit, while only 5.3% supported ‘no deal’, 5% EEA membership/the Norway (plus) model and 1.3% – just 91 readers – May’s plan.The vast majority of LabourList readers (72.9%) also said they believed that Theresa May would be willing to take the UK out of the EU without having secured a deal – despite Corbyn’s description of no deal preparations as “Project Fear”.According to the survey, the most popular shadow cabinet member is Labour’s Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer, with Corbyn allies John McDonnell and Emily Thornberry winning second and third place respectively.1.

first_imgIl-Faċilità Korrettiva ta’ Velletri fejn il-Papa se jiċċelebra Ħamis ix-XirkaIl-Faċilità Korrettiva ta’ Velletri fejn il-Papa se jiċċelebra Ħamis ix-Xirka On Thursday, April 18, the Holy Father Francis will visit the Velletri Correctional Facility, in Rome, for the celebration of Mass “in Coena Domini”.The visit will include encounters with the detainees, civil personnel, and penitentiary police officers, and the Eucharistic celebration with the rite of the washing of the feet of twelve detainees.The Holy Father will be received by the director, Maria Donata Iannantuono, the deputy director Pia Palmeri, the commander of the prison police, Maria Luisa Abbossida, and the chaplain Don Franco Diamante.The detention center, located one hour from the capital, was opened in 1991. It consists of two four-story pavilions, with 275 cells housing approximately 550 detainees and a police department.This will be the fifth time that the Argentine Pope will celebrate Holy Thursday with prisoners. Every year since his election in 2013, he has broken the tradition by celebrating this liturgy characterized by the rite of foot washing and the Gospel of the commandment of love, not in Saint John Lateran but in significant places: prison, refugee center or for people with disabilities.WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrintlast_img read more
