That is very welcome news indeed. But how crap is it to see an embryonic Progressive Alliance finally start to form in this country, and Labour are absolutely nowhere to be seen? A total fiasco.
If this Remain Alliance starts to firm up over the coming weeks and months, I just hope they don't go the full Change UK and start talking about putting up candidates against ostensibly like-minded opponents, in this case prominent Labour Remainers. David Lammy doesn't need to lose any sleep in his Tottenham constituency, but any PV advocate on the Labour side without at least a 7,000 cushion against the Tories could quickly become unstuck if a chunk of their vote suddenly disappears elsewhere. There are plenty of easy pickings out there for the Tories to feast upon if, God help us, they stitch back together their voter coalition in quick time.
I suppose a similar favour would also need to be extended to "outspoken" Tory Remainers such as, say, Grieve and Gyimah.
