Brexit talks & talks

 May- An effort by PM May take shape.

 

Brexit talks between Britain’s Conservative government and the main opposition Labour Party are resuming with little sign of progress.

The two parties remain far apart on terms of the UK’s departure from the European Union.  Labour Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer told a newspaper today that his party would only support a deal if it is put to a referendum vote.

However, Prime Minister Theresa May has rejected a new referendum, saying voters made their decision in 2016 when they narrowly opted to leave the EU.

Senior Conservative and Labour officials have been meeting for weeks in an attempt to find a compromise Brexit deal that can win majority support in Parliament.
