Corbyn: Brexit talks with government have 'gone as far as they can'

"Even more crucially, the increasing weakness and instability of your government means there can not be confidence in securing whatever might be agreed between us", Corbyn wrote.

"The increasing weakness and instability of your government means there can not be confidence in securing whatever might be agreed between us", he said.

According to Bloomberg this constitutes the longest unbroken slide since the turn of the century.

May is to make one final attempt to get her Brexit deal through parliament when she introduces the withdrawal agreement bill (Wab) in the Commons in the first full week of June.

And Corbyn's Labour, the principal opposition party, while politically committed to leaving the European Union, also opposes the deal over issues of workers' rights and those of European Union nationals living in Britain and British nationals living within the EU.

"It's very important we have someone who actually give leadership, who doesn't drift off to the left as the Labour Party has done".

But she agreed to give a timetable next month for her departure, raising the prospect that Britain will get a new prime minister before it leaves the European Union - now scheduled for October 31.

Farage, whose former party UKIP is credited by many with forcing Britain's 2016 referendum on European Union membership, launched his new party in April, threatening to take on Britain's political leaders who he accused of betraying the vote to leave.

The talks had been meant to fashion a Brexit plan that would win the support of both sides of politics - most likely a "softer" version of Prime Minister Theresa May's original deal struck with Brussels.

Nevertheless, people familiar with the matter told Newsweek that it is likely parliamentary elections will be held in July. Zelenskiy called on lawmakers to adopt bills that would strip them of immunity and ban illegal enrichment.


Speaking in Scotland on Thursday, Cable criticised Farage for spreading "dangerous fallacies" and said his assertion that the United Kingdom could adopt WTO rules under a no-deal Brexit were "completely untrue".

She has already agreed to resign once she has implemented Brexit, but it is now understood that she will resign if she loses the vote too.

This is still the plan, however the government could go back to Parliament earlier to try to hold "indicative votes" to see if its position had changed recently.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn (above) wrote to her yesterday telling her that the Brexit talks had "gone as far as they can".

Her decision was revealed on Thursday (16 May) by a senior Conservative MP, Graham Brady, the chairman of the so-called 1922 Committee, an influential backbench group within the party.

In his letter, Corbyn said that "without significant changes, we will continue to oppose the Government's deal as we do not believe it safeguards jobs, living standards and manufacturing industry in Britain".

Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson is the bookmakers' favourite to replace May.

"Britain is divided down the middle over Brexit: it was in 2016 and it is in 2019 - and that is one of the reasons why this issue is so hard to resolve", John Curtice, Britain's top polling expert, said. The original date for departure was March 29, but the government were forced to ask the European Union for an extension after they were unable to agree a deal, despite negotiating with the European Union for the better part of three years.
