Mrs May as Violet Elizabeth Bott

Theresa May, the UK's Primer Minister has threatened to be 'a bloody difficult woman' if she does not get her way in Brexit negotiations with the EU.

That puerile threat reminded me of Violet Elizabeth Bott, a character in Richmal Crompton's 'Just William' series of children's books.  Link

The lisping spoiled daughter of the local nouveau riche millionaire, Miss. Bott forced a reluctant William and his Outlaws to allow her to join them on their adventures, by threatening: "I'll thcream and thcream and thcream 'till I'm thick" if she did not get her way.

 Since Mrs. May has almost no bargaining chips to use in her negotiations with the EU perhaps her strategy will involve being sick over Jean-Claude Juncker.
