Theresa May has issued a challenge to Jeremy Corbyn in a public response to his letter.
The Labour leader took the news badly, and has escalated the feud by laying down a diss track collaboration with Eminem.
Dear Theresa, I wrote you but still ain’t callin’,
I left my telegram, my fax, and my allotment address at the bottom,
I tabled no confidence motions back in Jan, you must not-a got ’em,
There probably was a problem in the commons or somethin’,
Sometimes I scribble addresses too mucky when I b’n gardenin’,
But anyways, fuck it, what’s been up? May, how’s your brexit?,
My brexit’s fucked too, I’m ’bout to be thrown out,
The Labour leader says he is “open to meaningful discussions”, but makes clear that they cannot take place on the basis of May’s “existing red lines”.
Corbyn argues that “no tweaks or further assurances” will win May’s Brexit deal the approval of MPs.
Although Jeremy Corbyn highlighted several areas where they differ, the tone of his original letter was conciliatory and encouraging.
I read about Jacob Rees-Mogg though, what a dick, I’m sorry,
I had to deal with Ken Livingstone over some Hitler stuff when no one wanted him.
The Prime Minister hopes that lines of communication will be opened up across the two major parties in British politics to thrash a new plan for Brexit.
I know we don’t always see eye to eye on the referendum,
But I think we need to sit down and plan some outcomes,
First things first is you need to rule out no deal, Theresa.
Anyways, I hope you get this May, hit me back,
Just to chat, truly yours, your biggest friend,
This is Jez.
One unintended victim of this track is Stormzy, who is said to be devastated with jealousy at Jeremy’s collaboration with Eminem.
