EU rebuffs May’s new Brexit demands
Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain had what was described as a “robust but constructive” talk with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker as her visit to Brussels on Thurs- day got off to a polite but cool beginning. And as the talks came to a inconclusive conclusion, a growing list of recent ominous economic developments was punctuated by a report from the Bank of England that Britain faced its slowest growth in 10 years in 2019. May made the trip to seek to reopen the withdrawal agreement she had negotiated with Brus- sels. She needs help from the bloc because the agree- ment has been rejected by the British Parliament.
