Theresa May's letter is addressed to Corbyn, but aimed elsewhere

The Guardian - 02-11


Theresa May’s return letter to Jeremy Corbyn is full of some surprisingly warm words for the Labour leader and his offer of talks to come to a Brexit compromise. But the friendly tone masks two key things: an attempt to tease out Labour divisions on free movement and to publicly expose how little space there really is between Labour’s Brexit tests and May’s negotiated deal, meaning May has little appetite for any more radical changes.
