PRIME Minister Theresa May is expecting a “constructive” meeting in Brussels today as she heads to the European power-house to break the deadlock in Brexit negotiations.
Mrs May will meet the President of the European Commision, Jean-Claude Juncker who insulted Britain on Friday saying “Thanks for the war, but now you have to pay” relating to Britain’s Brexit Bill. She will also meet David Davis’ counterpart, Brexit negotiator – Michel Barnier later afternoon.
Downing St said she would also speaking to French President -Emmanuel Macron and Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.
Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson said at an EU meeting in Luxembourg “We made a very good offer … Let’s get these negotiations going and stop letting the grass grow under our feet.”
EU leaders think that Mrs May has been too vague on her offer of a financial settlement.
Germany and France are also blocking Brexit trade talks as they insist further progress in the “divorce package” is required for any such gesture to be made to May.
