DOWNING Street has played down expectations of agreement on Britain's withdrawal from the EU at a crunch summit next week, warning that "big issues" remain to be resolved. Theresa May's official spokesman said further concessions were needed from the EU side, and warned that no withdrawal agreement could be sealed without a "precise" declaration about the post-Brexit relationship. The comments appeared to pour cold water on upbeat assessments on the prospects of a deal made by senior EU figures over recent days. Just over a week remains before the October 18 summit in Brussels which was initially pencilled in as the deadline for agreement on withdrawal. But Downing Street would say only that the UK was working for a deal "this autumn", fuelling speculation that a special summit in November will be needed to hammer out agreement on issues including the status of the Irish border.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's somewhat stiff dance moves won mixed reviews on Wednesday as she became an unlikely social media star with her "Maybot" manoeuvres. The PM got into the groove in Cape Town on Tuesday when she was welcomed to South Africa by some dancing schoolchildren. The 61-year-old joined in the fun with some shapes reminiscent of gangly former England footballer Peter Crouch's robot dance -- before looking up, clocking the cameras and drastically reining it in. The Daily Telegraph newspaper said it was "the exact moment where she loses the will to live" -- the forthcoming avalanche of social media mockery appearing before her very eyes. But before that, just for a few seconds, "we saw who Theresa May really was... just a woman, flapping about in front of some bewildered kids like she was being attacked by eels. "It was without doubt the most human she has ever looked, which is an odd thing to say about a video that looks like a possessed shop mannequin being … [Read more...] about Mayin’ Alive!
