British Prime Minister Theresa May has accused EU chiefs of trying to hijack next month’s UK general election.
Hr accusation came as the row over the terms of Britain’s exit from the EU intensifies. EU bosses now say Britain should pay up to £100 billion (about $130 billion) when it quits the EU for good in 2019 – twice the figure originally forecast.
May is convinced the EU is trying to scare the British public into voting for pro-EU candidates who want to water down or even reverse last summer’s Brexit vote.
