May Meets MPs to Talk Brexit Deal. It took place within hours of the PM winning the no confidence vote in the House.  Labour declined to attend

Theresa May has called on MPs to “put self-interest aside” and “work constructively together”.  This is to find a way forward for Brexit.

On Wednesday night, 16 January, the PM met the SNP, Lib Dem and Plaid Cymru leaders but not Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

She said: “I am disappointed that the leader of the Labour Party has not so far chosen to take part. But our door remains open.”

Mr Corbyn has said that before any “positive discussions” can take place, the prime minister should rule out a no-deal Brexit.

The prime minister won a vote of no confidence by 325 to 306.  Rebel Tory MPs and the DUP backed her to stay in No 10.

But just 24 hours before, both groups had ensured her Brexit plan was voted down.

Mr Corbyn has said that before any “positive discussions” can take place, the prime minister should rule out a no-deal Brexit.

Will this happen?  At this stage not likely.  Theresa May is keen to keep that part of the deal on the table.

    Quite frankly, oue arer MP’s are a bunch of nomarks. No one wants the job and the government are incompetent.

    The May Deal is not what 17.4 million voted for, we did not vote for closer political ties with the EU, we voted to leave the dictatorship you call the EU with all the negativeness
    that being ruled by a foreign power entails.

    The deal is worse than being in the EU and the vote of no confidence proves were are governed by incompetents who’s stock in trade is hot air.
