The Prime Minister appears to be pursuing a course of action that her own deputy last week described as reckless

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to confirmation from No 10 that Theresa May won’t be asking for a long Brexit extension, said “The Prime Minister appears to be pursuing a course of action that her own deputy last week described as reckless.

“Theresa May is desperate once again to impose a binary choice between her deal and no deal despite Parliament clearly ruling out both of those options last week.

“What the Government should be doing is showing real leadership, making good on their commitment to break the deadlock and secure an extension with a genuine purpose.”
