The news is that the Brexit divorce bill could cost the British taxpayer up to 50billion euros.

Theresa May has once again displayed her impeccable qualities as the leader of our time – which tells you all you need to know about ‘our time’.

May’s tactic seems to be to tell the EU to take all our money. It reminded me of this clip from the US TV series 30 Rock, when the great Chief Executive and MBA holder Jack Donaghy negotiates with his nanny.

Do not assume the Chief Executive wins.

If only this Brexit negotiation were a TV show. Sadly, this is our current reality – risk-averse May giving away the farm.
