Prime Minister Theresa May said today that a lack of unity within the Labour party helped contribute to the failure of the cross-party talks on Brexit.Speaking at a Conservative EU election event in Bristol, May said: “We haven’t been able to overcome the fact there isn’t a common position in Labour about whether they want to deliver Brexit or hold a second referendum which could reverse it.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikePast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.
