Awkward: When Theresa May met Donald Tusk, the handshake went on a long time - probably because she was trying to think of something worthwhile to say.

Awkward: When Theresa May met Donald Tusk, the handshake went on a long time – probably because she was trying to think of something worthwhile to say.

If Donald Tusk thinks the UK is playing ‘Brexit tennis’ with the EU then he’s going to learn very fast that Theresa May is the world’s worst player.

Not only has she dropped the ball but she is facing in the wrong direction – at her own MPs rather than the European Union.

She has said the government will “not reveal its hand”, amid pressure to set out what it wants to achieve from the negotiations.

But we all know that means she has no idea what she wants to achieve or how to make it work.

European Council president Donald Tusk told Theresa May “the ball is now in your court” as the pair discussed the next steps on Brexit.

Meeting the PM at Number 10, Mr Tusk said the other 27 member states were waiting to see when the UK would formally trigger its EU departure.

Mrs May said she wanted a “smooth” Brexit process.

Meanwhile, former Belgian PM Guy Verhofstadt has been appointed as the EU Parliament’s lead Brexit negotiator.
