UK Prime Minister Theresa May faced a barrage of threats from her mainland counterparts as she arrived in Brussels to attend her first European Council meet. Both German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French Prime Minister Francois Hollande issued stern warnings to May that Britain faces a “rough” negotiation if she continues with her tough stance towards issues like enforcing a clampdown on immigration.
