Letters to the Editor

Two Brexit years on now and very little achieved, the UK resembles a funambulist on a high-wire in the wind without a safety net below.

Theresa May looks worn out and devoid of a modicum of strong negotiating skills, constantly flitting between Downing Street and Brussels, going cap in hand with her begging bowl representing the fifth most powerful country on the planet.

Mrs May appears to be forgetting her negotiating strengths. The UK is Germany's biggest car sales market. It imports more from the EU than it sells to it. The EU will ensure Brexit is a success after all this posturing by Donald Tusk and Michel Barnier, sanctioning the UK passing borders irrespective of where they are located, and a new trading deal.
