The U.K.'s Labour Party will back the idea of another "public vote" on Brexit, should its own Brexit plan fail in Parliament this week as expected, according to internal documents obtained by the BBC's Nick Robinson.

Why it matters: The party's internal briefing said the stance is necessary "in order to prevent a damaging [Brexit plan put forth by Prime Minister Theresa May] or no deal," adding that the vote would "need to have" an option for the U.K. to remain in the EU. Labour, which is the largest opposition party in Parliament, has faced internal tumult after 8 of its members resigned this month to form The Independent Group, citing the party's inconsistent Brexit strategy and allegations of anti-Semitism under leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Why it matters: Crafting reopening plans gave tech firms a chance to bolster their leadership and model the beginnings of a path back to normalcy for other office workers. Their decision to pause those plans is the latest sign that normalcy is likely to remain elusive in the U.S.

Why it matters: These changes are providing an almost insurmountable advantage to big companies, which are positioned to come out of the recession stronger and with greater market share than ever.

College students overwhelmingly plan to return to campus this fall if their schools are open — and they claim they'll sit out the fun even if it's available, according to a new College Reaction/Axios poll.

Why it matters: For many, even an experience devoid of the trappings of college life is still a lot better than the alternative.
