Brexit Britain: What you need to know

So, it's the morning after, the dust hasn't quite settled just yet, but here's the headlines the morning after:

Labour

  • Jeremy Corbyn is facing his own crisis at the top of the Labour party, with a motion of no confidence set to be debated at Monday's meeting of the party's MPs.
  • The Labour leader will deliver a defiant response to that development in a speech in London this morning outlining where the party goes from here.
  • Leave campaigner and prominent Labour MP Frank Field called on Corbyn to step aside, but said there was no clear alternative, with both the left and right of the party susceptible to "clap-trap" ideology on areas like defence.

Europe

The economy

Best of the rest
