Austin car like brexitIn an editorial criticising the Prime Minister's approach to Brexit talks the Observer's editor writes:

"It is time for May to wake up and stop dancing to the ignorantly chauvinistic, jingoistic tunes of the discredited Eurosceptic right. A good start in re-establishing trust and goodwill would be a unilateral guarantee of the rights of EU citizens in the UK. It is outrageous that they, and Britons living in the EU, are still unsure of their fate. May should also end the absurd pretence that Britain can escape paying an EU leaving bill.

The sooner she admits there are billions of pounds owing, a fact that strangely never featured in the last year's Leave campaign, the sooner voters will be able to place in its true perspective the Brexiters' egregious, not-forgotten lie about freeing up £350m a week for the NHS."
