UK Prime Minister May is getting out while she still can ;-) Pencil this into your diary:
Will make a speech on Britain's future relationship with the European Union on September 22 from Florence, Italy
Reuters reporting on a spokeman for the PM:
- The speech will focus on what kind of ties Britain wants to have with the EU after it leaves the bloc in March 2019
- "The prime minister wanted to give a speech on the UK's future relationship with Europe in its historical heart"
- "She will underline the government's wish for a deep and special partnership with the European Union once the UK leaves the EU."
