Theresa May Rejects Brussels's Hardline Brexit Demands

THE TELEGRAPH: Theresa May has dismissed a series of hardline Brexit demands from Brussels as politicians on both sides of the Channel warned that the talks could turn nasty.

The Prime Minister said requests formally agreed by EU leaders were simply a negotiating position.

Mrs May insisted she was sticking to her own demands outlined in a speech earlier this year which included tariff-free trade, ending the jurisdiction of European courts and stopping free movement of migrants.

When asked about mounting fears the UK could be “bullied by Brussels” she claimed that voters re-electing her was the best way to secure a good deal. » | Ben Riley-Smith, Assistant Political Editor; Peter Foster, Europe Editor and Auslan Cramb | Saturday, April 29, 2017
