BBC Question Time: Tory MP launches scathing attack (Image: BBC)
In a debate on the country’s current predicament, Conservative Party MP Helen Whately defended Theresa May’s Brexit plan while also attacking Labour’s inability to articulate their own Brexit strategy. Her attack was directed at Shadow Justice Secretary and Shadow Chancellor Richard Burgon who tried to clarify the Labour position. Mr Burgon also demanded that Mrs May must look for compromise outside her party in order to do what is best for the country.
In response, Ms Whately said: “You’re asking the Prime Minister to come to some compromise with your deal but your party doesn’t have a plan.
“You’ve been unable to articulate a clear and coherent Brexit plan.”
After her Brexit deal was voted down in a historic loss in Parliament a few weeks ago, Mrs May opened the doors to cross-party discussions.
However, Mrs May and Mr Corbyn only met on Wednesday to discuss the Brexit crisis as the Labour leader refused to meet with the Prime Minister unless a no-deal scenario was removed from the negotiations.
