After what was rumored as a disastrous meeting between European Commission President Jean-Claude Junker and Theresa May, She has brushed it of as mere “Brussels Gossip” and stated that the meeting was constructive.
The German Newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (FAZ) has reported that European Commission President Jean-Claude Junker said to the Prime Minister Theresa May “I’m leaving Downing Street 10 times more skeptical than I was before”. EU’s Chief Brexit Negotiator Michel Barnier, and key staff suggest that the two sides are dangerously divided on the key points like “Divorce” Bill and the rights of EU citizens currently in the UK.
She is accused on having “No Plan” and that it is unrealistic to reach a resolution on the status of expatriates, plus the exit strategy and a trade deal within two years. The FAZ newspaper also reported that Theresa May tried to use the dinner to push an early deal to secure the rights of British workers across the EU, But Jean-Claude Junker made it clear this would not be settled by June as suggested as it’s a complicated matter for things such as Health Care.
From what I read the Forbes report on this is extremely one-side and seems to ignore certain statements and is very Opinionated, I would Recommend you avoid any articles by the author in the future.

When it comes to the Brexit situation a lot of mistakes are being made on the British side and their politicians seem unqualified at time to deal with such a situation, And I can see this back firing resulting in an outcome that will create problems that a newly separate UK will struggle to solve and may be the reason for them losing their spot among the super powers on the world.
