Shadow education secretary Angela Rayner tells Today that Labour wants to focus on the domestic agenda, while Theresa May just repeats that “Brexit means Brexit”.
“The world is moving on,” Ms Rayner says. “We know that Brexit is happening.”
She claims that Mrs May called an election in the hope of securing a big majority in order to continue “ideological attacks on our education and health service… That’s why we’re talking about the domestic agenda”.
However, Ms Rayner does have time to attack the PM’s approach to Brexit:
“Saying you’re going to be a bloody difficult woman right at the start of negotiations tends to make sure that do get a bad deal,” she says.
Negotiation is a dialogue between two parties and unfortunately, Theresa May, in the way she’s handled it, has made us look like ogres across Europe.”
