LONDON (Reuters) - Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has written to lawmakers from across Britain’s parliament to discuss ways to break the Brexit impasse, just days before the prime minister is expected to put her deal to another vote.

In a letter written to lawmakers from all parties in parliament, Corbyn invited them to meet with him and his Brexit policy chief Keir Starmer to discuss how to “break the Brexit impasse”, and use as a starting point Labour’s alternative plan and its support for a vote to prevent a “damaging Brexit”.

“It must now be incumbent on us all as parliamentarians to do our best to work together and find a compromise and a solution that ends the needless uncertainty and worry that the government’s failed Brexit negotiations have caused,” Corbyn said in his letter.
