The Telegraph: Theresa May: 'I've proved doubters wrong'17 December 2017 | 04:02 | FOCUS News Agency
After a turbulent six months in which her leadership has been questioned repeatedly, the Prime Minister takes personal credit for convincing European leaders to move on to the next phase of talks.
Writing in the Telegraph, Mrs May strikes a defiant tone by insisting that she succeeded in spite of those wanting to “talk Britain down”. She says she will not be “derailed” as she tries to negotiate the crucial terms of the country’s final departure from the European Union.
Mrs May’s article comes ahead of a “crunch” week for the Government as the Cabinet prepares to discuss for the first time what the terms of that deal should be.
This newspaper understands that, in a significant shift, Philip Hammond is preparing to throw his weight behind plans by Brexiteers for a bespoke trade deal with the EU, having previously favoured an “off-the-shelf” model closer to arrangements in place with Norway.
