Theresa May

BRUSSELS (AP) – The European Parliament’s chief Brexit official has welcomed British Prime Minister Theresa May’s move to hold talks with the opposition Labour Party as “better late than never.”

Guy Verhofstadt welcomed May’s move and said it was “good” she was reaching out across party lines to find a compromise to break the Brexit deadlock.

Verhofstadt has long said that effective cross-party cooperation in the House of Commons was the best, and perhaps the only way, for Britain to emerge from the crisis.

During several legislative sessions, he exhorted British lawmakers to put party politics behind them and become their political acumen to put country before party.
