LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May should consult with the opposition Labour Party and others on her Brexit strategy, David Cameron, May’s predecessor, said on Tuesday, according to the Financial Times.

“It’s going to be difficult, there’s no doubt about that, but perhaps an opportunity to consult more widely with the other parties on how best we can achieve it,” Cameron was reported by the FT as saying at a conference in Poland.

“I think there will be pressure for a softer Brexit,” added Cameron who quit last year after Britons voted to leave the European Union, against his advice, in a referendum that he had called.
