He describes her as a “secretive and peremptory leader… during a arise of her power, who has dejected a antithesis to left and right, as good as in her possess party”.

Christian Zaschke for Munich’s centre-left Süddeutsche Zeitung also gives an unpleasant form of Mrs May as an “Ice Queen… who has mastered a art of cold revenge, and relentlessly repeats her ‘strong and stable’ message”.

Denmark’s centre-left Politiken is no some-more confident about Mrs May’s pledges to change a bill either. It warns that she will face a “post-election charge of gripping lane of a British economy, during a same time as carrying to control a difficult Brexit negotiations”.

‘Robin Hood’

Labour’s declaration is generally seen as a many severe in decades, whose interest is doubtful to extend over personality Jeremy Corbyn’s bottom of constant supporters.

‘Flying Europe’s flag’

The Liberal Democrats guarantee to reason a referendum on a UK’s final understanding with a EU was their many engaging process for European commentators.

The match of Spain’s centre-right ABC, Luis Ventoso, says a oath is delivering usually a “slight arise in a check rating of a usually celebration that plainly flies a European flag”.
