Brexit Series: Theresa May accuses EU of meddling in UK election
Speaking at the Prime Minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street, the UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced her visit to her Majesty the Queen and informed of the end of the 2015 parliament. She also presented the case for her party to the British people. There she accused the European Union of trying to meddle in the UK’s general election.
Speaking at her residence, she warned the people of the United Kingdom that there are some counterparties in EU, who do not want Britain to prosper and added that the recent threats issued by the European Union were deliberately timed to affect the outcome of the general election. According to her, bureaucrats of Brussels were acting in a coordinated fashion to affect the result of the election. She said, “ The European Commission’s negotiating stance has hardened…..Britain’s negotiating position has been misrepresented in the European press… The events of the last few days have shown that some in Brussels do not want these talks to succeed.
She was possibly referring to the recent leaks about a dinner between the UK Prime Minister and the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker that ended in a disaster. She might also be referring to the increase in demand from Brussels of an exit bill equivalent to €100 billion. She reminded everyone of her stance that Britain wants a deal but is ready to walk away as she believes that no deal is better than a bad deal.
She finally calls on the British people to strengthen Britain’s position at the negotiating table by electing her as she represents strong and stable leadership whereas the Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn could only deliver a coalition of chaos which will not be in the interest of the British people.
