Cross-party talks? Isn’t that May-talk for stealing other people’s ideas?

Look out, British politicians! Here comes Mrs May, in by the back door, to steal your ideas and take credit for them!

Theresa May says she wants to have talks with leaders of all other Parliamentary political parties in a bid to save her Brexit deal.

Hmm. We’ve been here before, I think.

Doesn’t she mean she wants to hear everybody else’s ideas, steal the best ones and claim them as her own?

She has done it before.

No wonder Jeremy Corbyn wants as little to do with it as possible.

    This should be Labour’s chance. Surely, the time is here for the Labour backbenchers to take their own initiatives to arrange open meetings with backbenchers of other Parties to discuss deals/arrangements etc that exclude the toxic Far-Right and the “No deal” scenario. In parallel with May’s talks with JC etc. But this needs as many taking part as possible. May wants to create another stitch-up amongst a chosen few (which is why she struggled to want to draw in Jeremy Corbyn as he would not fall for it).
    But we need the likes of Benn and Nandy and Pidcock to get clarifying with Tories like Grieve and Soubry and Collins as to what they would all agree to.

    I am a staunch Remainer. I wanted a Peoples Vote. When other local Labour members were reluctant, I dropped off 500 leaflets round my small southern town calling for a People’s Vote,on my own. BUT , in order to isolate (and, yes piss-off) the Tory Far -Right, and their equivalents in the country, I am happy to accept a Brexit with guarantees on workers Rights, with a Customs Union, and a Trading Arrangement with the EU. To re-emphasise our Party’s commitment to the fullest possible co-operation with other nations and people.
    I want to see the issue settled for now, but with the toxic far-Right left fuming and crying “betrayal” but with the voting public accepting the deal, if only out of exhaustion!

    In fact, I am beginning to fear that my favoured policy of a People’s Vote should be de-prioritised to give our MPs a chance to get a good deal first. I am fearful that, in the end, another referendum may give the Right another chance to spread their poison.

    It’s reMAYn talk for I am going to plough on regardless just like I have done since I concocted the chequers sell out I am still insisting on implementing.

    I suspect that not only will May want to steal other people’s ideas, but she will want to seek out scapegoats upon whom she can attempt to unload the blame. She is a corrupt liar.

    Actually, it seems more like a ploy to bring in the opposition and ignore them so she can retry her cruddy deal and say Labour approved it. The added bonus of being able to say Labour was in on the s**tshow would also give her an excuse to try to blame the damage of Brexit on someone other than the Tories.

    Fortunately, Labour has seen through this obvious ploy.

    At least Dick Turpin wore a mask . . . it’s all so depressing I think I’ll up my

    It would be wise to note that the Right-leaning Blairites such as Benn and Cooper were called to No 10.
    Not because they have any ideas but to be manipulated by May and create a wedge within the Labour Party – the old Tory divide and conquer back stop.

    And she claims that Corbyn is playing politics with Brexit !!
