May invites opposition to Brexit talks

Theresa May's government survived a vote of no confidence yesterday evening to avoid a general election, as the prime minister said she would speak to opposition leaders on Brexit

May invites opposition to Brexit talks

Prime minister Theresa May has said she will speak to opposition party leaders about the next steps for Brexit after she survived a no-confidence motion brought by Labour. 

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn brought the no-confidence vote to MPs on Tuesday after May's Brexit withdrawal agreement was defeated by 230 votes

Despite the historic defeat, Corbyn was unable to convince any Conservative or DUP MPs to vote against the government, meaning May secured enough votes to defeat the motion. 

Immediately after the vote, May (pictured) said she would speak to opposition party leaders about the best way forward for Brexit. 

However Corbyn has ruled out entering talks with May unless she removes the threat of a 'no deal' Brexit

In a speech outside 10 Downing Street last night, May said: 'I am disappointed that the leader of the Labour party has not so far chosen to take part, but our door remains open.

'It will not be an easy task, but MPs know they have a duty to act in the national interest, reach a consensus and get this done.'

Corbyn is expected to set out his position on talks in more detail in a speech at 11 this morning.
