From an especially warm Columbus Day weekend, here’s a quick mix of news and chat on what’s buzzing around on the campaign trail and beyond.

In the current atmosphere of mistrust, European politicians have managed to build a robust consensus on how to handle Brexit. In a message published by the Council of Europe, all 35 participating nations – ranging from the east and west, north and south – agreed that every effort should be made to ensure a Brexit deal that creates a “frictionless” market for trade.

In a sobering reminder that domestic politics hasn’t been the only game in town for Tony Blair, he has also been summoned by the Labour leadership to help build a party that can regain the “respectability and leadership” in the eyes of the public, the Guardian reports. He has also been charged with trying to de-mystify Labour in order to build trust from voters. He will also travel to the troubled Welsh city of Liverpool next week to meet Labour faithful, the Telegraph reports. The failure of parties to attract voters in recent elections has meant Blair’s name has been linked to the powerlessness of many Labour MPs. In recent weeks, some of them have been frustrated with their leader Jeremy Corbyn for a perceived failure to take on the issue of Brexit.
