Lobbying for Failure

Not quite sure whether to laugh or cry. Theresa May, rightly appalled by the Brexit prospects, starts chatting up individual European leaders, asking for concessions. European leaders are actually considering concessions, but then realise that if they grant them, this will be written up by the British press (and it will) as Theresa's triumph against the hated foreigners. So they quickly and unanimously decide not to offer those concessions. Thanks, guys - great job. This is going to be a disaster and we have no-one to blame but ourselves.
