Brexit... again. Yawn ! - 24th Jul 2018 4:34pm
Theresa would appear to be arranging her own suicide. I'm not sure how accurate this is so, we may have to wait and see.
The Prime Minister is set to cause controversy with her changes to the governments negotiating stance with Brussels.
In a statement to the House of Commons today, Theresa May has announced she is taking formal charge of Brexit negotiations with the EU.
Newly appointed Brexit Secretary, Dominic Raab will not have a frontline position negotiating with the EU, despite being a Brexiteer
The Prime Minister, who supported the remain campaign will now be the leading front in the Brexit talks and will give greater power to Olly Robbins, who is eyed with suspicion by Brexiteers.
Raab will only lead the Brexit talks if Mrs May is not present.
May released a statement, which can be seen below
Remain supporters leading the Brexit talks is not what Brexiteers want to see and we can only assume that major concessions will be made.
Without Boris Johnson and David Davis applying pressure to the cabinet, there is a high risk that Mrs May will get the soft Brexit she has deep down always desired
