Reuters – An anti-Brexit protester jumped in front of British Prime Minister Theresa May’s motorcade on Thursday (February 7) as she arrived at the EU Commission building in Brussels.

May is expected to call on the European Union to work with her to change a divorce deal and help her win the support of a divided parliament to smooth Britain’s departure from the bloc.

Before arriving in Brussels for talks with EU leaders, May acknowledged that her task – to force change to a deal agreed almost three months ago – would not be easy, and a government source said a breakthrough on Thursday was not expected.

But she will tell European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, European Council President Donald Tusk and the European parliament’s Antonio Tajani she wants to work “urgently” with them to secure changes that she argues can win over not only her fractious Conservative Party but lawmakers across parliament.
