London: Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday said she will announce details of Britain’s European Union exit plans in the next few weeks, and denied a former diplomat’s claim that the government is “muddled” about Brexit.
In her first interview of 2017, Ms May also said Donald Trump had made “unacceptable” comments about women — but stressed she’s had “good” conversations with him about the vital trans-Atlantic relationship.
Ms May has said for months that she will invoke Article 50 triggering two years of EU exit talks, by March 31. But she has refused to reveal details of Britain’s goals or negotiating strategy. Ms May argues that to do so would weaken UK’s hand, but the lack of detail has fueled allegations that government plans for Brexit are in disarray.
Ivan Rogers, who resigned as UK’s EU envoy last week, criticised politicians’ “muddled thinking” about the EU exit. Ms May has insisted the government is “not at all” muddled.
