Brexit: Talks with Corbyn and short delay - Theresa May's next steps

Prime Minister Theresa May leaves from the rear of 10 Downing Street on Monday

"It is very disappointing the cabinet has chose to entrust the final handling of Brexit to Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party", said Boris Johnson, whose sentiments were further echoed by his fellow Conservative Party member Jacob Rees-Mogg, who added, "What was announced. was an attempt to overturn Brexit in an attempt to do a deal with socialists". He said he would make the move if the government "proves it is incapable of commanding a majority in the House of Commons".

Mrs May directed her college to "remarks I made about what I think a Labour government would do with regards to the economy" and said she still does "not think that the Labour party should be in Government".

By approaching Corbyn, a veteran socialist deeply disliked by many Conservatives and mocked by May herself as unfit to govern, she risks enflaming Conservative divisions.

Scotland's First Minister Nicolas Sturgeon - a pro-EU lawmaker who heads the much smaller opposition SNP party - said she hoped "Labour doesn't sell out here for a bad deal".

"The 12th of April is coming and the faith of millions of United Kingdom citizens and European Union citizens and their right to travel is in our hands", he said when asking the committee to back the proposal. Corbyn, who voted against joining the bloc in 1975, has said Brexit should include a customs union with the EU and protection for consumer and environmental standards and workers' rights.

If that fails, it will be up to Parliament to decide what happens next, she said.

May said on Tuesday she would seek a delay that is "as short as possible" to the current Brexit date of April 12, having repeatedly said she did not want Britain to have to take part in European Parliament elections on May 23. One minister quit on Wednesday.

We must deliver the Brexit the people voted for.

Australian arrested over New Zealand shooting massacre to face 50 murder charges
Police had earlier filed a single, representative murder charge against 28-year-old Australian Brenton Harrison Tarrant . The judge explained that from his end, Tarrant could see the judge and lawyers but not those in the public gallery.

She has tried cross-party talks before, but they led nowhere.

The prime minister is to ask the European Union for another extension to the Brexit deadline while she attempts to come to an agreement with the Labour leader.

May's pivot toward Labour points Britain toward a softer Brexit than the one she has championed since British voters decided in June 2016 to leave the EU.

Labour is formally committed to enacting the voters' decision to leave the European Union, but numerous party's lawmakers want a new referendum that could keep Britain in the bloc.

"Three years after their decision, it would be great if they had a clear position".

"Honestly, it's sometimes hard to follow", France's Jean-Yves Le Drian said on the twists and turns of the Brexit debate in London.

Wales minister and whip Nigel Adams said the Prime Minister had made a "grave error" by reaching out to the Labour leader in the hope of finding a consensus solution to Brexit ahead of a crunch European Union summit on April 10.

British Minister of Wales Nigel Adams resigned from the government and Conservative Party whip after failing to agree the latest Brexit strategy of Prime Minister Theresa May.
