Theresa May was not schooled for the EU's brutal rebuff today. She 
expected some yield in the EU's position, instead they brutally mugged 
her. Her press conference, once she'd given a fluent reading of prepared 
remarks, was horrendous.

She had been led to expect otherwise by Whitehall. She was either hung 
out to dry by none other than Olly Robbins, a former national security 
apparatchik whom May appointed to run the Brexit department, and has 
been directly involved in the negotiations. Or, he was himself 
misinformed when he claimed that the Chequers deal had been 
well-received in Brussels.
