Reactions of shock to Jeremy Corbynís refusal to partcipate in a meeting with other party leaders the PM invited to earlier are starting to populate Twitter.
This from the Daily Mailís Claire Ellicott:
Hearing @jeremycorbyn left meeting with Theresa May and opposition leaders because he refused to sit down with @ChukaUmunna because he 'wasn't proper party leader'

Several others are reporting this, including Vince Cable.

I am also shocked. Corbyn is human, like the rest of us. But such pettiness at this crucial time is well below the standards I expect of a party leader. All else aside, to make one of the key stories of today that the Labour Leader is behaving like a petulant toddler is as damaging to future election prospects as any opponent could hope.
