LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May believes trying to reach agreement with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to break a parliamentary impasse is worth aiming for to win the “significant prize” of Brexit, her spokesman said on Tuesday.
“Jeremy Corbyn was elected on a manifesto to deliver Brexit. I think there is common cause to be made,” the spokesman told reporters.
“We think there is an opportunity to agree something here and put forward a plan that both sides agree to as a way of getting Brexit over the line. I think anybody would agree that is a significant prize and worth trying to work towards.”
