Macron and Merkel could kick-start Brexit trade deal: Theresa May believes she can broker an agreement by going direct to the EU leaders

Theresa May is planning to turn to Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron to resolve the Brexit divorce bill dispute.

Amid increasing anger over the EU’s handling of negotiations, the Prime Minister believes she can broker a deal over the payment by going directly to the bloc’s leaders.

Tension increased yesterday when European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said it was ‘crystal clear’ trade talks could not begin until the UK caves in and pays the £74billion exit settlement the EU is said to want.
