Theresa May’s “Ampass” (impasse) statement doesn’t really move things forward, rather she’s trying to keep her deal, whilst negotiating the future relationship with the Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn. She refuses to explore No deal and to head for a further extension to Article 50, but not beyond May 22nd. The tactic of “trying” to get Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn involved is shrewd, if they don’t reach an agreement, she can blame him, and if they do but it falls in the commons, she can blame it on him, if they come up with a variety of options, she claims the bits she didn’t like (aka the Commons votes against) were insisted upon by her. Of course, I could be being cynical, but the state of things right now is pretty much no further forward than we were this morning, in my opinion.
