May: Corbyn willing to meet with Hamas, Hezbollah and IRA, but not me

British Prime Minister Theresa May attacks opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn for his refusal to meet with her over Brexit, asking the Labour party head why he met with members of Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA, but not with her.

“He has been willing to sit down with Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA without preconditions, but he will not meet with me to talk about Brexit,” May charges, during Prime Minister’s Question Time in the House of Commons.

In response, Corbyn says he offered to meet with the prime minister last fall, before quoting a line previously used by Hilary Benn MP: “While the door to her office may well be open, minds inside are completely closed.”
