Theresa May's first meeting with all the other European Union leaders since she became British prime minister was described by most merely as businesslike.But at the end of a Brussels summit dinner, May served up her approach to Britain's departure from the EU while the other 27 leaders listened. British Conservative lawmakers who have known the former interior minister for years say she is "unflashy" and "businesslike," adopting a no-nonsense approach that her aides hope will ease tensions with the EU.At her closing news conference, May was clear that she would not allow the EU to make decisions without her. A senior EU diplomat said the 27 leaders were left "no wiser" by May's briefing, and echoed comments from German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande that the future negotiations are still largely a mystery.May has at least survived her first such EU encounter.
