Theresa May taunted by her own pro-EU remarks ahead of crucial Brexit negotiations
Theresa May was welcomed back to Brussels with a giant billboard ad of her own pro-EU remarks as Brexit D-Day draws close.
The Prime Minister is in Belgium today to continue talks with the European Union.
She will try to renegotiate the Irish backstop as well as request legally-binding assurances that the backstop will not extend indefinitely.
However, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said he does not expect a “breakthrough” in talks.
And to add insult to injury, May was welcomed to Brussels with a giant billboard in the Place de Brouckère reminding her of her own pro-EU remarks.
The post, which refers to comments she made just before the EU referendum vote, reads: “I believe it is clearly in our national interest to remain a member of the European Union.”
It follows a spate of other contradictory viewpoints posted by politicians and prominent Leave campaigners that have been springing up across the UK in the run-up to Britain’s divorce with the European Union.
As @Theresa_May arrives in Brussels with 37 days till Brexit, we’re here to welcome her with this giant billboard in the Place de Brouckère in the city centre. What do you call a Prime Minister whose only policy is something she thinks is *against* the national interest? pic.twitter.com/QFTHK68Ils
