Brexit: May’s strategy

The Brexiteers won the referendum by promising that exit from the EU would be easy and painless. So let them take charge of negotiating that exit—and let them take the blame for the very painful terms that Britain will probably have to accept as the price of leaving.

So far, so good. Boris Johnson, pictured in this file photo, the face of the 'Out' side in last month’s Brexit referendum and now Britain’s new foreign secretary, got through his first encounter with the 27 other foreign ministers of European Union countries on Monday without insulting anybody.
