DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4151* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 20 Mar 19


Don't you think come the next election, Steve, that the opponents will make a great deal of capital out of that action? Sure, the meeting was presented as one of leaders, but what was the downside of Corbyn staying? He could easily have issued a statement aftwrwards saying TIG is not a party, and so should not have been present but in the national interests it was more important to seize any chance of getting May to listen to everyone's views. Instead it looks as if he has put a personal animosity with the TIG as more important than the country's future. Bad politics and tactical play, especially as everyone expected the meeting to be the usual of May repeating herself and ignoring everyone. The statement by the Lib Dema, Greens etc immediately after the meeting looked very much as if it could have been 90% prepared beforehand, with just scope for a few tweaks if needed.
