Theresa May is heading to Brussels, to press EU leaders for “legally binding changes” to the Brexit deal.
The British Prime Minister insists, the UK will not be “trapped” in the ‘backstop’ – which is the plan to avoid the return of Irish border checks, regardless of whatever ‘UK-EU trade deal’ is agreed.
She says, the deal must change, if it is to win the support of MPs who urged her to seek “alternative arrangements”, when rejecting the deal last month.
However, the EU has repeatedly ruled out changing the withdrawal agreement.
Mrs May’s visit is being overshadowed by the row over yesterday’s outburst by European Council President: Donald Tusk, who declared that there was a “special place in hell”, for those who campaigned for Brexit, without a plan to deliver it!
