Umunna walks in; Corbyn walks out – of a PARTY LEADERS’ meeting, not one of company executives

“I’ll get my coat”: Jeremy Corbyn walked out of a meeting of party leaders when Chuka Umunna and Anna Soubry, who are representatives of a private company calling itself The Independent Group, attended.

Malcontents in the mainstream media are making much of the fact that Theresa May held a meeting of UK political party leaders at around 6pm today (March 20) – and Jeremy Corbyn walked out when Chuka Umunna and Anna Soubry walked in.

The simple fact is that neither Mr Umunna nor Ms Soubry are party leaders, so they had no right to be at such a meeting. They are representatives of a commercial organisation masquerading as a political entity, nothing more.

Mr Corbyn was right to leave. One has to question Mrs May’s intentions in inviting the Independent Group representatives. She knew Mr Corbyn had called for a meeting earlier in the day but she managed to find a way to renege on it.

She really is despicable, isn’t she? No wonder Twitter is full of posts under the #MayMustGo hashtag.

The storm unfolded on Twitter – but not in the way the Establishment and MSM creeps wanted:

Mrs May was due to make a statement in Downing Street – and members of the public were all over that, too:

POSTSCRIPT, 8.42pm: Theresa May has just made her statement and it contained absolutely nothing but vitriol against Parliament for frustrating her in her bid to get her duff deal passed, and a claim that she knows what people want. They want her to resign. She let them down again.

    One has to question Mrs May’s intentions in inviting the Independent Group representatives.

    Unfortunately everything went according to plan as far as May was concerned.

  2. Stu

    Pathetically transparent move by May to set up a “See what I have to deal with? – poor me” excuse. (Remember SHE invited TINGE PLC)

    Also an obvious precursor to “I’ve tried my best for the people but I have to resign because MP’s wont listen to me” – leading to the Remain result that she wanted all along.
    Pathetic.

  3. Rik

    Despicable yes,that word sums it all up for her . . .
    deliberately inviting so-called TIG ( traitors) to this meeting..
    She just doesn’t want to hear what JC has to say about his version of leaving with a deal. . Yes Despicable …..

    I suspect that the whole purpose of this meeting was just another nasty Tory “divide and rule” tactic.
