May ambushed at EU summit in Salzburg

Prime Minster May's hopes of a Brexit breakthrough at the EU summit in Salzburg were dashed yesterday as EU leaders threw out her Chequers proposal stating that it did not work. Given the supportive rhetoric coming from EU leaders in the weeks leading up to the summit, the UK premier believed her Chequers plan was going to be given a warm reception at Salzburg, but in reality, it was more of an ambush. The summit was intended to strengthen the Prime minister's authority in Westminster however this appears to have backfired once again which can only lead to more infighting in parliament.
