During the Andrew Marr paper review this morning, Nigel Farage (the first man on the sofa this year) made a striking comment:
I don't think the EU ever took Mrs May terribly seriously. I got the sense, I was there on Wednesday, my last day there, I got the sense in that debate that for the first time since the vote in 2016 they are a little more frightened of us than we are of them.
Andrew Marr's response to this was striking too. He asked, incredulously, "Really?"
He evidently didn't believe Mr Farage.
