May to work with Corbyn – after 2 years

Two contrasting views of the same eventful day 02/04/19

Paul Waugh in Huffington Post

and John Crace in the Guardian

Both say in their individual styles that May is running a serious risk in finishing the Tory Party by inviting Corbyn to assist and Corbyn will be taking a serious risk that the Labour heartland will abandon them.

If the outcome is a joint recommendation to vote on a soft Brexit it could be worth it as a stay of exit from the EU for another 18 months but no more. But I do have my doubts that May and Corbyn are anything of the calibre of Churchill and Atlee.

I can only hope that the Bill before the UK Parliament today tabled by Yvette Cooper and Oliver Letwin to prevent the UK leaving the EU without an agreement is successful.  A real Stake in the Ground.
