Last night the Government lost a vote which they brought in the hope of reiterating support for their approach to Brexit and the negotiations. Their defeat shows that there is no majority in Parliament for the Prime Minister’s current course of action.
The Government cannot keep on ignoring Parliament or ploughing on towards 29th March without a coherent plan. Theresa May cannot keep on trying to run down the clock and hoping that something will turn up that will save the day and save her face.
Jeremy Corbyn this week wrote to the PM to set out Labour’s constructive suggestions and requirements for a Brexit deal that works, and it’s up to the PM to accept that her red lines must change. It’s the only way forward.
