In pledging to stay best friends with the European Union after Brexit, Theresa May is getting ahead of herself, say EU negotiators who want the Briotish premier to start putting the divorce money on the table as soon as Monday.May made two potentially important concessions on the other two criteria for moving on to trade talks: A direct role for the EU-U.K. exit treaty and for EU case law in British judges' rulings on the future rights of EU citizens in Britain, and she said Brexit would not immediately cost other states money.On the first, Barnier may repeat the EU demand for direct oversight by European Court of Justice; on the second, EU negotiators insist Britain will owe a share of union spending for years after the budget May referred to, which ends in 2020 .Such payments to the European Union have become a hot-button issue for British voters, somewhat to the frustration of EU negotiators who note that Britain's annual net contribution to the EU budget represents little more than 1 percent of its public spending.
