BRITISH Prime Minister Theresa May is about to face one of her toughest weeks yet — and she does so knowing her allies and colleagues have their knives sharpened.
Mrs May is hoping to win a series of key votes in parliament on Tuesday and Wednesday that would secure passage of her flagship Brexit legislation. If she fails, it could be seen as vote of no confidence and her own position as prime minister may be under threat.
Far from stabbing her in the back, things have gotten so bad her own MPs are brazenly telling media: “She’s f****d.”
At the same time, she is returning from the G7 meeting in Canada where Donald Trump — the leader of a country that supposedly has a “special relationship” with the UK — deliberately snubbed her.
First Mr Trump didn’t meet with Mrs May and then when asked about close relationships with the other six leaders attending the summit he named three of them he had the strongest connection with.
“I would say that the level of relationships is a 10,” he said of the leaders, which did not include Mrs May.
Many observers are now speculating he views Mrs May as beneath them, with both camps leaking details of their strained relationship to media.

Not content to simply snub the British PM, Donnie the Dumpster than went on later to insult the leaders of Canada, France and Germany, before wrapping up by abusing NATO...

This is one time I'm glad to hear the British PM and US President do not share a close relationship

Trump is getting more bizzare by the day, he makes the Beloved Leader look rational.
