WASHINGTON POST: Britain’s Theresa May is trying to keep E.U. ‘divorce’ from going totally off the rails

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 21/9/2017

Description

“If you’re an E.U. negotiator, that’s profoundly confusing at best and deeply frustrating at worst,” said Rob Ford, a politics expert at the University of Manchester. “It leaves them asking the same question that they have been asking of Britain since the day after we voted to leave the E.U., which is: What exactly do you want?”

“This appears to be yet another twist in the internal warfare within the Conservative Party. It does the U.K. no credit and no service in the wider world,” the leader of the socialist bloc in the European Parliament, Gianni Pittella, told the Observer. “I fear the British government is heading towards the Brexit rocks.”
