Brexit: Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn hold ‘constructive’ talks

Talks between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn to break the Brexit deadlock have been called “constructive”.

The two leaders met on Wednesday afternoon and agreed a “programme of work” to try to find a way forward to put to MPs for a vote.

It is understood that each party has appointed a negotiating team, which are meeting tonight before a full day of discussions on Thursday.

A spokesman for No 10 said both sides were “showing flexibility”.

And he added that the two parties gave “a commitment to bring the current Brexit uncertainty to a close”.

Speaking after the meeting, Mr Corbyn said there had not been “as much change as [he] had expected” in the PM’s position.

He said the meeting was “useful, but inconclusive”, and talks would continue.

UK Will Not Leave EU on March 29 – Prime Minister

British Prime Minister Theresa May has said her country will not leave the European Union on March 29, as originally planned, but said the departure wouldn’t be delayed any further than June 30.

“Nearly three years have passed since the public voted to leave the European Union,” May said in a Wednesday address to the nation. “It was the biggest democratic exercise in our country’s history. I came to office on a promise to deliver on that verdict. In March 2017, I triggered the Article 50 process for the UK to exit the EU, and Parliament supported it overwhelmingly.”
