Daily Mail: Reports " 'It's going to be painful': EU leaders set a collision course with May as they warn Britain's demand for talks on a trade deal at the same time as haggling over the £50billion divorce bill is NOT acceptable "
Lets Get Real:
The French and the Germans will try to control the show, the UK should have back channel talks with the Eastern Members of the EU, the Eastern members can not count on Germany to come to their protection if the Russian Bear has his claws out, thus the UK will defend them with troops, the British method should be divide and conquer, get the Eastern block of the EU to back UK Exit, while doing side deals, EU is big, it does not have an intelligence agency or an army to enforce its will, that is the FACT lost on the extreme pro Europeans. The UK has played the Diplomatic game longer than most Countries, we have either fought or been allies with most of the Countries of the EU, the UK will out last the EU, we Brits are a stubborn lot!!
