LONDON (Reuters) - British lawmaker Iain Duncan Smith, a former leader of Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party and a staunch Brexit supporter, attacked her new plan to delay Brexit and open talks with the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn.

“This is an utter disaster,” he told Sky News’ deputy political editor Beth Rigby on Tuesday.

“We are just about to legitimize Corbyn. It is appalling.”
