May says talks with opposition 'constructive', Corbyn calls it 'inconclusive'

LONDON: Britain's Brexit drama went into additional time on Wednesday as PM Theresa May and the country's primary opposition sought a compromise deal to prevent an abrupt British departure from the European Union at the finish of next week.

In an about-face that left pro-Brexit contributors of May's Conservative Party howling with outrage, May sought to forge an agreement with left-wing Labour Party chief Jeremy Corbyn after failing three times to win Parliament's backing for her Brexit deal.

May also stated she would ask the EU for an extra prolong to Britain's departure date - postponed as soon as already- to avert a chaotic and economically damaging no-deal Brexit on April 12. "The country needs a solution, the country deserves a solution, and that's what I'm working to find," May instructed lawmakers ahead of meeting with Corbyn.

Afterward, each the federal government and Labour referred to as the meeting "constructive" and stated their groups would dangle extra in-depth talks on Thursday. May's place of job stated either side had proven "flexibility and a commitment to bring the current Brexit uncertainty to a close". Corbyn, extra muted, stated: "The meeting was useful but inconclusive. There hasn't been as much change as I expected."
