Briefing Thursday 23rd August 2018

Jeremy Corbyn is due to outline plans for a major overhaul of the BBC as he calls for “bold, radical thinking on the future of our media”. The Labour party leader will suggest ideas for “building a free and democratic media for the digital age”, as he warns “a few tech giants and unaccountable billionaires will control huge swathes of our public space and debate”.

Jeremy Corbyn has declared Labour would “absolutely” vote against a “no deal” Brexit in Parliament. 

And in other news: Students across the country will be receiving more GCSE results in numbers instead of letters for the first time this year as teenagers pick up their results this GCSE results day.
