8:05 pm
every sunday begins with church for the prime minister. after apparent details of the private talks with labour in the sunday times. do you trust the prime minister? no, not after this weekend. i think she has jeopardised the negotiations for her own personal protection. that's not the end of it. labour fret that even if they can't do a deal with theresa may, you could get ripped up by her successor. trying to enter into a contract with a company going into administration and they can't... contract with a company going into administration and they can't. .. we need to start walking ourselves back

to an agreement where we can get the majority of people in the house of commons on board. i genuinely think there is a deal to be done. look at waiting in the wings? a man who frightens plenty of tories contemplate compromise.“ frightens plenty of tories contemplate compromise. if they push forward with this will be seen as a coalition of politicians against the people and i think millions of people and i think millions of people will give up on both labour and the conservatives, i really do. from the unambiguous group exit nigel farage, to the anti—brexit liberal democrats. i think it is now very, very clear that british politics is not going to have to be remade. it is clearly failing in all kinds of ways, and notjust a mess around the referendum, but the fact that as a country we are not getting to grips with the really big
