In Brussels the blame game has begun

Theresa May's speech is not going down well in Brussels.
There's a sense that her words on Friday are finger pointing by the UK Government ahead of another lost vote in the Commons on the deal struck by the prime minister.
In her speech she’s expected to say "the decisions that the European Union makes over the next few days will have a big impact on the outcome of the vote".
But in Brussels there's a rejection of any plea for the EU to bend and accommodate the UK’s domestic political needs.
"We only have one red line, that is we will not undo, for the sake of Brexit, the Union system," Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament’s Brexit co-ordinator talks, told MEPs on Thursday evening.
