Mrs May is expected to give European dignitaries her view on the state of Brexit talks.

How deluded can one person be?

It seems This Writer was being hopelessly optimistic when I speculated that the forthcoming speech by Theresa May (pushed back one day to September 22, I notice) might be both her own resignation and that of her ridiculous attempt at forming a minority government.

Alas, with the votes this week to transform the UK into a functioning dictatorship, she doesn’t seem all that desperate to do the decent thing.

That leaves us with the bizarre possibility that the crazy squatter in 10 Downing Street might actually be serious about trying to influence the Brexit negotiations – talks that have fallen flat on their backside thanks to the efforts (if you can call them that) of her crack(pot) team headed by David Davis.

Is she so demented that she doesn’t realise the UK is the weaker party in these negotiations and any attempt by her to strongarm the EU negotiators will be met with blank indifference?

If Michel Barnier bothers to lift a finger in response, it will probably be to make a rude gesture. What an embarrassment Theresa May really is.

Theresa May will travel to Florence next week to make a major speech on Brexit, in a bid to kickstart stalled talks with the EU.

She is expected to give European dignitaries her view on the state of Brexit talks and “assist” her negotiating team in nudging discussion on to critical future trading relations.

Government sources told The Independent the speech on September 22 should be seen as a “curtain raiser” to both the next round of Brexit talks and the October meeting of Europe’s national leaders, which will decide if “sufficient progress” has been made to begin trade talks.

The Prime Minister’s intervention in the historic Italian merchant city comes after the last round of talks ended with the EU, claiming Britain was “backtracking” on commitments and as Ms May’s negotiators continue to push for talks to advance on from withdrawal issues – inducing the settling of the UK’s financial obligations.
