Talks to end Brexit deadlock collapse amid PM May govt’ instability: Labour’ Jeremy Corbyn

London, May 18: British opposition Labour Party has on Friday pulled the plug over six weeks of Brexit negotiations with Prime Minister Theresa May, further blaming her troubling authority as her leadership nears to end.

According to Dawn news reports, Labour party head Jeremy Corbyn has stated the gaps between both could never get bridged, as well, he also had no confidence that her successor would continue to stick to any negotiation which they might have reached.

Corbyn, in a letter to the prime minister, said the talks have “gone as far as they can”.

“The increasing weakness and instability of your government mean there cannot be confident in securing whatever might be agreed between us,” he said.

Corbyn stated his party would, therefore, continue to oppose May’s European Union (EU) divorce agreement as it stands.

The members of parliament have thrice rejected May’s Brexit deal, forcing her to postpone the date of Brexit, the departure from the EU, twice and to reach a final call to Labour.

MPs are due to vote for a fourth time in early June on the terms of Britain’s withdrawal from the EU.

May said they would be faced with a “stark choice”: voting to deliver Brexit, or “to shy away again”.

On Corbyn’s announcement, she said: “We have not been able to overcome the fact that there is not a common position in Labour about whether they want to deliver Brexit or hold a second referendum which could reverse it.” She was speaking at a rare campaign event ahead of the European Parliament elections, to be held in Britain on Thursday, in which polls suggest her Conservative Party could even come fifth.

Britain was never meant to participate in the parliamentary elections but however, due to Brexit deal, it is taking part in the elections.

The collapse in both parties talks came shortly after May agreed to set out a timetable for her departure following Brexit voting in the parliament, which is scheduled to take place in the week starting June 3.

The timetable likely means a new Prime Minister, a new Conservative leader, which means the new PM should be in place before the party’s annual conference in September.
