Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'd say it was a calculated move on behalf of May's team to invite Chuka as well Corbyn to a "Party Leaders" meeting. After all Chuka Umunna isn't a leader and isn't even a member of a registered party. Point scoring has always been higher on their list of priorities than moving a process forward.

Corbyn isn't really into the PR thing and left knowing there would be bad press. As if his presence at the meeting would have solved anything. May had to be seen to be "trying to bring the country together". Insulting her MPs, telling them its all their fault, and exploiting divisions in the opposition is obviously the way to do this...
