EU war-gaming for the collapse of UK PM May's government - Observer
The European Union is war-gaming for the collapse of Prime Minister Theresa May's government after her Brexit divorce deal suffered two crushing defeats, the Observer newspaper reported.

EU officials are concerned that the prime minister has little chance of passing her divorce deal if she brings it back before parliament for a third time next week, the newspaper said.

A diplomatic note between European ambassadors and senior officials reveals an attempt to ensure that May's successor would not be able to unpick the divorce deal agreed between Britain and the EU last year, the Observer said. (Reporting By Andrew MacAskill; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
