The Labour leader has given a robust defence of his party’s decision to try to appeal to both leavers and remainers in this Thursday’s European elections.

End to Labour Talks Is Final Nail in Coffin for Theresa May’s Brexit Deal

Corbyn left the door slightly open to doing a deal with the government -- but only if May makes "significant changes," he said in a statement. An end to the cross-party talks and the prime minister’s imminent departure blow wide open the possibilities for what Brexit will eventually look like. It’s now almost certain that it will be May’s successor who completes the U.K.’s departure from the European Union and the next months will see Conservatives choose a leader in a ballot that could define...

Conversely, many predicted that the opposition Labour party and its hard-left leader, Jeremy Corbyn, would capitalize on Prime Minister Theresa May’s weakness to win scores of...
