Labour conference: Andy McDonald resigns from shadow cabinet after Starmer opposes minimum wage lift – live

I wouldn’t have used the words that she has used, but I think we have got to recognise that we have got a divisive government that wants to pit Brit versus Brit, or Scot versus Scot or English person versus English person.

I don’t think the Labour party should have any truck for that and the challenge I make to my colleagues is don’t think that by creating our own version of an us versus them, that pits half the country against the other half of the country, is the route to electoral success for the Labour party.

It’s the wrong thing to do and it also won’t win us an election, we’ve got to be more hopeful than that and talk about an all of us that brings our country together, pulls us together and takes on the big challenges of the future.
