Journalists were left “laughing uproariously” after Angela Merkel poked fun at May’s poor attempt to negotiate a post-Brexit deal.
She said that she felt trapped in a loop with May since the Brexit vote back in 2016.
Merkel made her comments in a “secret” press briefing, during the World Economic forum in Davos.
The ‘secret” details were leaked by Robert Peston, who said Theresa May repeatedly asked Ms Merkel to “make me an offer.”
Ms Merkel said that when she replied “but you’re leaving – we don’t have to make you an offer. Come on what do you want?”, Ms May replied again, “Make me an offer.”
“And so, according to Mrs Merkel, the two find themselves trapped in a recurring loop of ‘what do you want?’ and ‘make me an offer’,” Mr Peston wrote on his Facebook page.
These worrying revelations come as news as broken that the government’s new analysis of the impact of Brexit says the UK would be worse off outside the European Union under every scenario modelled.
