It was curtains for the cross-party Brexit negotiations today. Things fell apart and in a letter addressed to Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn wrote: “I am writing to let you know that I believe the talks between us about finding a compromise agreement on leaving the European Union have now gone as far as they can.”
The leader of the opposition – who runs a fairly dysfunctional party himself – cited the “increasing weakness and instability” of the government as his reason for calling off the talks. He warned that he did not have confidence that May could secure whatever agreement the pair came to.
