‘May poised to of­fer bil­lions to end Brexit talks dead­lock’

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY BEN GLAZE Deputy Po­lit­i­cal Ed­i­tor

THERESA May will of­fer to pump bil­lions of pounds into the EU un­til 2021, it was claimed yes­ter­day.

Next week the PM is ex­pected to sug­gest Bri­tain makes bud­get pay­ments for three years af­ter Brexit.

It is hoped this will break a dead­lock in talks with the EU, but risks in­fu­ri­at­ing Tory Brex­i­teers.

Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Ca­ble said she had been put “in a very awk­ward po­si­tion” by her party. He told Buz­zFeed: “It’s like be­ing hand­cuffed to a ra­di­a­tor at the mercy of others.” Sir Vince took over from Tim Far­ron af­ter a row over whether gay sex is sin­ful. Mr Far­ron said “re­main­ing faith­ful to Christ” was in­com­pat­i­ble with be­ing party boss. He told the Mir­ror: “I find it odd con­science is fair game. A lib­eral de­fends others’ rights. It is not some­body who be­lieves in com­pete as­sim­i­la­tion.”
