European Commission 'too busy' to interfere in General Election

"But what's clear from Theresa May's reaction is that she is prepared, whatever the commission officials are doing in Brussels, to stand up for Britain's vital national interest in these very complicated talks". If emotions get out of hand, they'll become impossible.

"To succeed we need today discretion, moderation, mutual respect and a maximum of goodwill".

A spokesman for the European Commission declined to respond to May's comments, but said the EU is not "naive".

"All of these acts have been deliberately timed to affect the result of the general election". "We must show the same unity of goal here at home to ensure that we get a deal that works in our national interests, too", she said.

Not only has May's intervention increased those unrealistic public expectations, the manner in which she has intervened will now make it even harder for her to meet them.

Over a few testy days this week, both sides sparred about the negotiations which are to start after the June 8 United Kingdom election, with some questioning what, if anything, Britain should pay for.

It reported Juncker's view that May was "in a different Galaxy", that Brexit Secretary David Davis should be removed and that Juncker was "10 times more sceptical" that a settlement could be arrived at after the Downing Street dinner.

As reported by Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's global broadcaster, the comments came hours after the EU's chief negotiator on Brexit talks, Michel Barnier, unveiled a common bloc strategy agreed to on Saturday at an European Union summit for negotiations that he said would be neither quick nor painless.

But her remarks also signal a deliberate domestic strategy, as May seeks to cast herself in the British election as someone who can go toe-to-toe with European officials.

"The two sides are so far apart, I think it's perfectly possible that the talks could collapse".

Still, the main takeaway from this is that the once market leader, Fitbit, is now in trouble. Fitbit's shipments, revenue, pricing and profit are all shrinking.

"Threats against Britain have been issued by European politicians and officials".

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker took a swipe at Britain on Friday, saying he preferred to give a speech in French because English was becoming less significant.

"So, in a nutshell, we are very busy and we will not "brexitize" our work", Schinas said during a press briefing.

Ms Solberg added: "This is a challenging period both for the United Kingdom and for the European Union, but also for all of the rest of us who are closely connected to the United Kingdom and European Union at the same time".

Barnier spoke at an annual conference in Florence on the "state of the union", an event that took on added drama this year following the Brexit vote and the looming French elections, pitting the anti-EU Marine Le Pen against the pro-EU Emmanuel Macron.
