UK: May seeks to unite divided cabinet before big Brexit speech

Source: Washington Post

"Prime Minister Theresa May tried to unite her fractious Cabinet behind her plan to reboot faltering Brexit negotiations Thursday, as senior European Union officials suggested British hopes of moving the divorce talks on to a new phase next month might be dashed. May gathered ministers to reveal details of a speech she will deliver in Florence, Italy on Friday. The British leader has chosen one of the historic hearts of Europe as the location for an address that the government says will stress Britain’s desire for a close and special relationship with the bloc after Brexit. EU leaders want more than warm words — they want details." (09/21/17)
