Theresa May’s "Reset" Fails

UK Prime Minister Theresa May attempted a “reset” for her government after last month’s election losses, but the bid was undermined by confusion over Brexit policy and a health scandal dating back decades.
In a speech on Tuesday at the launch of a review of working practices, the premier reached out to other parties, urging them to work with her to ensure British workers are given fair pay and conditions, saying “big decisions” need to be made so Britain emerges from Brexit “stronger and better”, Bloomberg reported.
“Though the result of last month’s general election was not what I wanted, those defining beliefs remain, my commitment to change in Britain is undimmed,” May said.
“I say to the other parties in the House of Commons, read this report, engage in the difficult issues it raises, come forward with your own views and ideas.”
Her overture was immediately rebuffed with the main opposition Labour Party saying that the prime minister’s record was ”one of failing working people and workers’ rights”.
The premier’s olive branch is a symptom of her weakness. Stripped of her majority, she has secured the backing of the 10 lawmakers from Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionists on key votes, including on Brexit.
But to pass other items on her list, she needs to build cross-party consensus.
