• Jeremy Corbyn has mocked Theresa May’s invitation to the Labour party to help create policies for the UK’s future post-Brexit by offering to give her a copy of his election manifesto – and suggesting she call another general election. The Labour leader – who is now enjoying a solid lead in opinion polls – accused the government of running out of steam at a pivotal moment for the UK, pointing to uncertainty about Brexit amongst other factors. The prime minister also came under pressure from her own backbenchers about the suggestion, expected in a speech tomorrow, for MPs across the political spectrum to come forward with their own ideas.

  • European judges could continue to have sway over Britain for a “limited time” after Brexit, the British government has conceded, in a development that could pave the way for a softer exit with the UK retaining closer ties to the EU. May said last year that an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice was one of her negotiating “red lines”. However, Monday Mrs May’s spokesman said: “The transition rules could involve the ECJ for a limited time. That’s a matter for negotiation.” The government’s new position was also signalled by Damian Green, who is, in effect, Mrs May’s deputy. “If there needs to be some kind of implementation period, or transition period, in certain areas after March 2019, which I think everyone agrees is quite likely, then the rules that operate during that transition period will by definition not be the rules that we have afterwards,” he told the BBC.

  • All options should remain on the table in Brexit negotiations, a newly formed cross-party group of MPs has claimed. Labour’s Chuka Umunna said there must be a deal which maintained the closest links with the EU, including possibly remaining in the single market. He said it was “nonsense” to claim the group, whose members include ex-Tory minister Anna Soubry and Green leader Caroline Lucas, wanted to stop Brexit. The All-Party Parliamentary Group on EU Relations, whose other members include Lib Dem deputy leader Jo Swinson and figures from the SNP and Plaid Cymru, says its has three priorities: to ensure the UK does not exit the EU without a formal deal; to ensure that all options are kept on the table as talks progress; to ensure the “closest possible relationship” with the remaining 27 EU members after Brexit.
