May softens, EU confident on deal

Worrying noises out of Brussels from Eurocrats seem to be indicating that Theresa May is softening on Brexit, with EU leaders increasingly confident that she will agree to their demands.

The Times note that May has dropped the ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’ line she made earlier this year.

The fear will be that a weak negotiating stance will see Britain clobbered financially, with a watered down Brexit that fails to deliver much of what 17.4 million voted for.

May, who kept her head down during the referendum campaign and is desperate not to take part in televised election debates, has also sounded very weak on immigration.

The majority of Brits agree that no EU deal would be better than a bad one. They are unlikely to forgive a government that bottles it and sells out last minute.
