I'm very sorry to see @jessphillips drop out of the contest - we need to broaden our debate, not narrow it, and force the two favourites to prove they're up to the fight by pitting them against some real strength. Jess is a sad loss in that effort, but we will keep going.
My statement on the ‘peace plan’ announced yesterday by Trump: an utter abomination, which has nothing to do with enabling a two-state solution, but everything to do with two corrupt leaders trying to get each other re-elected. I'll seek to raise this in the House tomorrow.
It's a shame to miss out on the rest of the race, but good luck to the three superb remaining candidates. Huge thanks to members from all corners of the UK who supported me, and to my brilliant campaign team. It wasn't to be, but we gave it everything. My full statement is here.
