Prime minister Theresa May meets French president Emmanuel Macron to find way through Brexit impasse



 
 
I write from the beach overlooking Le Fort de Bregancon, an impressive castle which has served as a summer retreat for French leaders from Napoleon to Macron.


Why are we here? Because Theresa May asked to be here.


Her office had requested a meeting with the French president to discuss - and perhaps begin to break - the latest Brexit deadlock.


The Chequers proposal, the most detailed British vision for Brexit to date, has been rejected by the EU.


It wasn't rejected outright.


The EU feared that would have weakened an already fragile prime minister.


Instead the EU has gently suggested that it's not a runner.
