The Brexit deal between the Tories and Labour is dead with both sides blaming each other for their failure to find an agreement to take Britain out of the EU.
Jeremy Corbyn has sent a letter to the Prime Minister where he said they have ‘gone as far as they can’ after 42 days of talks due to ‘the increasing weakness and instability’ of her premiership. Mr Corbyn said with a Tory leadership battle now weeks away he has no ‘confidence’ in the ‘Government’s ability to deliver any compromise agreement’ and said: ‘She is not going to be Prime Minister for much longer anyway’.
Mrs May’s chances of receiving Labour support for the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) faded with Jeremy Corbyn’s party frustrated at the lack of progress in cross-party talks and the prospect of a new prime minister tearing up any compromise.
If the Withdrawal Agreement Bill is not through by the summer recess, the choice facing Britain would become more ‘unpalatable’ as the October 31 Brexit deadline draws near, with the prospect of a no-deal Brexit or Article 50 being revoked and the process being cancelled.
Today it emerged that Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn had discussed forming a pact to quit the EU by July 31 and swerving a second referendum.
