John McDonnell - UK Politics Today

British Prime Minister Theresa May has broken the terms of confidential talks with the opposition Labour Party on a Brexit compromise and can no longer be trusted, Labour finance policy chief John McDonnell told the BBC on Sunday.

Asked if he trusted Theresa May, McDonnell said: “No, sorry. Not after this weekend when she’s blown the confidentiality… I actually think she’s jeopardised the negotiations for her own personal protection.”

Nevertheless, McDonnell said talks would continue later this week and if a deal could still be struck, it must be concluded quickly.
