Theresa May Calls EU Leaders Inclduing Hollande, Merkel Ahead Of Brexit Speech

Ahead of her Brexit speech to the nation British Prime Minister Theresa May is learned from a Downing Street spokesman to have made a series of phone calls to European Union leaders including French Prime Minister Francois Hollande and Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel.

May said to both the countries United Kingdom would be leaving the single market of EU and controlling immigration was a red line for them.

Belgian politician in charge of Brexit talks, Guy Verhofstadt, said UK has chosen a hard Brexit and the days of Britain’s cherry-picking is over.

Meanwhile, EU chiefs said to be walking away from Brexit talks if Belgium fails in offering to UK a good deal in withdrawing from the bloc.

May kicked off her speech to the nation saying she wants the country to have the potential talent and ambition to be.

In her Christmas Eve speech May urged Britons to unite during Brexit process. Her upbeat Christmas message looked like an attempt to address the split Britons into supporting Brexit or opposing the same arguing leaving European Union could turn up disaster for the country.

Meanwhile, the YES supporters of Scotland are unwilling to take on any UK debt post-Brexit. They are looking for an independent Scotland.

More than 750 people among 800 favored independence at the Scottish Independence Convention meeting in Glasgow on Saturday.

Director of the Common Weal, Robin McAlpine, posed a question over approach of independent Scotland to UK debt.

He said, “If you look at international precedents and international law, Scotland has zero responsibility for UK debts on assets.”
