This is an outstanding, must-read article from the Independent. It reports that Labour and Conservative MPs have reportedly met for secret talks amid growing pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May to take a cross-party approach to Brexit in light of the hung Parliament following the general election.
It looks like powerful forces are uniting, applying massive pressure towards a softer Brexit. But MPs on the right of the Conservative Party will threaten to withdraw support for May’s puppet government, precipitating an election which the Tories are fearful of losing.
Surely, it’s time to remind MPs that as public servants their personal interest must always be subordinate to national interest?
