This pho­to­graph de­picts Se­bas­tian Kurz, Chan­cel­lor of Aus­tria, and The­re­sa May, Bri­tish Prime Mi­nis­ter, du­ring the in­for­mal EU sum­mit in Salz­burg, Aus­tria, on the 19th and 20th of Sep­tem­ber. Brexit was one of the main to­pics dis­cus­sed. While The­re­sa May ho­ped to sof­ten the EU lea­ders on her Chequers plan ahead of the 17-18 Oc­to­ber EU sum­mit (the date ori­gi­nal­ly set as a dead­line for any wi­th­dra­wal agree­ment), Do­nald Tusk sta­ted at the clo­sing press confe­rence that all 27 EU lea­ders agreed The­re­sa May’s Chequers plan could not work, na­me­ly be­cause it cher­ry­pi­cked the single mar­ket. Se­ve­ral Bri­tish news­pa­pers wrote that this was a “hu­mi­lia­tion” for the Bri­tish Prime Mi­nis­ter.
