Labour’s talks with Theresa May are collapsing because she STILL won’t compromise on Brexit

FailEUrs: These posters suggest public frustration with both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn. Isn’t that what Mrs May wants?

So much for Theresa May’s offer of talks with Labour to find a compromise on Brexit that a majority of MPs in Parliament can support.

I stated when she made her offer that she would not vary or erase her “red lines”, and this has proved to be the case, with Jeremy Corbyn’s negotiating team saying she has failed to offer “real change or compromise”.

Indeed, it seems she has point-blank refused to change the withdrawal agreement, and the only offer regarding the political declaration was to address Labour’s issues in a separate memorandum; no changes to the actual wording of the document would be countenanced.

Strange, when one remembers that changes to the declaration are not legally binding. Mrs May would resign after getting the UK out of the EU, to be replaced – most likely – by a Brexiteer who could ignore anything she agrees with Labour.

The talks aren’t over, although neither Labour nor the Conservatives have set a date for them to continue.

It seems the problem is a matter of bad faith – which is ironic when one remembers that Mrs May is the daughter of a clergyman.

Meanwhile, it seems the public are becoming frustrated with both the Conservatives and Labour – and isn’t that what these talks are really all about?

Aren’t they simply an attempt to shift the blame for Mrs May’s failures onto Labour, with a lie that the opposition party is causing the hold-up?

    Daughter of a clergyman, eh? Yet we know so little about the late Hubert Brasier.

    Her aim remains the same as it was 4 years ago to lock us into the Eu in perpetuity

      On what are you basing this? On her recent desperation to push a withdrawal agreement on us that will benefit her and not the rest of us? That’s just being a Conservative – every rich person for herself, and all that.

    The Tories are desperate to shed the blame and they’re looking for another “Nick Clegg”.

      I think that be true in some sense. What I don’t understand is why she thought JC would just ‘roll over’. Is she daft? Seriously believe she’s lost the plot.
