>> And we welcome those new colleagues.>> There could be trouble at the top of Britain's Brexit team. UK Prime Minster, Theresa May, has been accused of making negotiations harder because of an absolutist approach.>> Mr. Davis!>> The warning coming from the former chief of staff to Brexit Secretary, David Davis.
Speaking to The BBC, James Chapman criticized May's red lines. It all dates back to here. Last year, at the Conservative Party Conference, May insisted the European Court of Justice shouldn't have any oversight after Brexit. Fast forward to the present day and that starts as being criticized for leaving the man in charge of Brexit negotiations, Hamstrung.
The role of the European Court is proving controversial in early rounds of talks. They only officially began less than two weeks ago, but already Theresa May has been walking a tight rope in Brussels. Off the bat she's outlined plans for EU citizens living in a post-Brexit Britain. Last week they got a lukewarm reception from our counterparts in these corridors.
Brussels wants the rights of EU citizens living in the UK to be upheld by its court. Under Theresa May's principle, that's currently not even up for discussion.
