Theresa May has accused European politicians of making “threats” against Britain to try to influence the general election result.
In a speech outside 10 Downing Street, Ms May suggested those in Brussels wanted Brexit talks to fail and that the European press had “misrepresented” the UK’s negotiating stance.
She said: “Britain’s negotiating position in Europe has been misrepresented in the continental press.
“The European Commission’s negotiating stance has hardened.
“Threats against Britain have been issued by European politicians and officials.
“All of these acts have been deliberately timed to affect the result of the general election that will take place on 8 June.”
Ms May´s comments refer to reports in a German paper of a Downing Street dinner with EC President Jean-Claude Juncker, during which he said she was “delusional” about Brexit.
