This week in European politics / Revue de presse européenne de la semaine (03-07/10)

Désolée si cette revue de presse est 100% anglophone cette semaine

Brexit is the flavour of the week, with the British Prime Minister outlining her vision for Britain. A vision that makes me think that in a couple of years I will no longer go for shopping and theatre weekends in London. Either because as a not filthily rich foreigner I will not be welcomed anymore (I’m sure they will still welcome oligarchs or petrodollar people) or because there might not be much cultural life left in London. Time to read V for Vendetta (by Alan Moore) again folks.

So let’s get started on this Brexit means Brexit means little Britain review.

 

A summary of the main proposals from May’s speech from the Guardian:
