Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Turns out it was all a scam to assign blame:
Theresa May's prospects of cobbling together a cross-party majority to convince EU leaders to grant a short Brexit delay next week appear to be slipping away after Labour claimed she had failed to offer "real change or compromise" in talks.

The prime minister made a dramatic pledge to open the door to talks with Labour on Tuesday after a marathon cabinet meeting.

But after two days of negotiations and an exchange of letters on Friday, Labour issued a statement criticising the prime minister for failing to offer "real change or compromise".

"We urge the prime minister to come forward with genuine changes to her deal in an effort to find an alternative that can win support in parliament and bring the country together," a spokesperson said.

Sadly, I am not surprised. So, back to going over a cliff on Friday then.

Agreed, but to be fair, Labour could have arrived with a plan. But they just waited for May to make concessions instead.

They would rather prolong the chaos than carry May over the line. (she would probably mess up the touchdown and have a penalty awarded against her anyway...)

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
