Theresa May: ‘Warrior woman’ adopts style ‘similar to Tony Blair’ for Brexit negotiations

Theresa May, 62, was in Brussels this morning for more Brexit negotiations.

The Prime Minister was in the city to discuss the Irish backstop issue, regarding the border between Northern Ireland and the ROI.

The EU proposed that Northern Ireland stay in the customs union and single market after Brexit is expected to come into effect in 2020.

Arriving at the summit Theresa adopted her “warrior woman” body language, according to body language expert Judi James.

Speaking to the Express.co.uk, Judi revealed: “May seemed to have adopted her popular ‘warrior woman’ body language mode here, converting her often fast, but less assured, style of walking into a breezy march to register resolve and intent.

“She also showed some signals of impatience to imply she is keen to get on with business and get things over with.”

As Theresa walked towards the press at the summit she appeared to bang her arms to her sides like wings. “This signals brusque impatience,” revealed the expert.

Stopping for the awaiting press, the Prime Minister gave an interview.

Judi said: “Her body language tone through the interview was one of a rather irritated head teacher being quizzed by her pupils about the same old subject.

“She even began her reply with ‘as I said’ which is a hint that the questions might be getting tedious.

“She backed this up with a staccato delivery, rocking slightly on her feet and performing head baton gestures to add weight to her words.

“She raised her brows and tilted her head in a gesture of authority and used a knuckle baton/point in the style of Tony Blair.”

Continuing to discuss Theresa’s demeanour during the initial interview, Judi revealed: “The signals were authoritative and firm then, although – as often when May is put under pressure – her words didn’t quite meet the level of bravado.

“She was very slightly breathless and the train of speech was slower than the gestures and slightly faltering at times.

“She also used the trick of very long-winded paragraphs in reply to direct questions allowing her to offer the answer she wanted to give, before marching off to proverbially roll up her sleeves for the battle.”

During the talks this morning, the Prime Minister suggested an extension of the Brexit transition period.

Earlier in the month, Theresa gave a very different speech at the Conservative Party Conference. 

She walked onto the stage to the classic tune of Abba’s Dancing Queen, a bid to poke fun at herself after she was filmed dancing awkwardly in Africa and a subsequent spat between her and former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in recent weeks.

A body language expert claimed that May was taking a leaf out of BoJo’s book with the wild dance moves – which have taken the internet by storm in just a matter of hours.

Was this a successful speech for the leader who’s battling with the EU over Britain’s Brexit deal? Did it show confidence?
