Someone finally told the Prime Minister how we all feel about her empty phrases (and why she scored so shockingly low in the election):
“We don’t want to buy a pig in a poke,” said Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, calling May’s opening “an extremely vague proposal for something that is incredibly complicated.”
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said preserving residency rights for EU citizens was such an indisputable goal that any stumbles over the issue showed how fraught the talks would be.
Meanwhile, despite May’s “generous and fair promise”, the affected people don’t trust her as far as they can throw her.
And the Conservative party blames the ‘unpatriotic’ media for questioning the government – you couldn’t make it up. Theresa and Andrea, you’re making us a laughing stock worldwide!
