it Is France that will finally kick the Uk out of the EU?
absurd, because a majority of voters in the Uk have already voted to leave the union, and that the country then had almost three years to prepare for the exit.
But now the prime minister, Theresa May, where cap-in-hand (or hat, if), and ask the EU to bail her out of a avtalslös, chaotic Brexit. Again.
It is undeniably a remarkable development.
If someone would sit down and count the times that Theresa May said that Brexit is a matter of ”taking back control” – over borders, money, and laws, that figure could soon come up in the three-digit numbers.
It has been almost a mantra for her, and for brexitörfalangen in the Tories the last few years.
But with just a little over three days left to chaotic EUROPEAN exit gives Theresa May is certainly not the impression of having more control.

to Berlin, to appeal to chancellor Angela Merkel for more time and even a delay of the EU-exit.
Then it's on to Paris, where the british prime minister's most difficult task ahead: to convince the president of the French republic Emmanuel Macron.
Macros have grand plans for the union, and wish that the european Elections should be about his federalist vision – not about the concerns of Brexit.
the Last time May has asked for a delay was Macron who was most skeptical of – even if in the end he agreed to give the british until 12 april to get a ' yes ' to utträdesavtalet in parliament.
Now the time is almost up, and the situation in the british house of commons remains locked. It is therefore not out of the question that France put its veto against a further delay.
in an infinite Brexitprocess. The british government and the british parliament must realise that the EU cannot waste time in all eternity on the faltering british domestic policy, said the French foreign minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian at the weekend.
in Part, this is a way to try to put pressure on Theresa May and the leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn, who at the eleventh hour, sat down and talked to find a blocköverskridande solution to Brexitknuten.
From the EU's side would be a target of a future customs union more than welcome in the political declaration, which is linked to utträdesavtalet. But Theresa May knows that such a concession would make it impossible for the british to stop trade agreements independently of the EU, something like ”brexitörfalangen” in her party would see as treason. Likely, it would lead to lots of ministeravhopp.
Emmanuel Macron wants to, just as little as someone else is having a Brexitkaos on his conscience. It can punish themselves in the long term, then a avtalslös Brexit would probably even turn against France.
But at the same time, it would not be the first time that a French president is putting a spanner in the works for britain's EU relations. The legendary president Charles de Gaulle said on two occasions in the 1960s, no to let the british in the then burgeoning european cooperation.
the de Gaulle an important role model, and according to sources, several media quoting attracted he of the idea to become a president who dares to say no, which he did.
most of The time suggests that he is not doing it – but it will not be until after Wednesday's extraordinary EU summit which we surely have the answer.
