Jeremy Corbyn has hit out at Theresa May saying the government is on course for a “chaotic” Brexit.
The Labour leader criticised May’s handling of the negotiations, saying he met socialist leaders in Brussels last week and “was given rather longer than the five minutes” that Theresa May was given to address European leaders.
According to BBC reports, Corbyn claimed the government’s approach has caused “anger and resentment” amongst European politicians, and says the government will not achieve its aims by “threat, hectoring or lecturing of the European Union”.
He called for a “more grown-up approach” in order to avoid a chaotic severance of our ties.
