SIDEBAR May suited to managing Scotland football team, lawmaker jokes

London (dpa) - British Prime Minister Theresa May‘s "ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory" shows her suitability to manage Scotland‘s national football team, Scottish National Party lawmaker Peter Grant joked on Tuesday.

"It‘s no surprise that the [Conservative] leadership contenders are now circling around the prime minister," Grant told parliament.

"And I can reveal that there‘s a vacancy coming up because the prime minister is today being interviewed for the job of Scotland football manager for her fantastic ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory," he said.

May has been criticized and ridiculed by politicians on all sides, including some in her own Conservative party, after her last-minute failure to clinch a deal on key Brexit issues on Monday.

The two side were reportedly close to a deal to keep an open border between Ireland, an EU member, and Northern Ireland, which is set to leave the bloc along with the rest of the United Kingdom.

But Northern Ireland‘s Democratic Unionist Party, which cooperates with the Conservatives in the British parliament, said it was unhappy with the wording of the draft deal and would not accept any "regulatory divergence" between the territory and the rest of the United Kingdom.

Unionists fear that giving Northern Ireland special benefits after Brexit, for example allowing it to retain EU single market and customs union membership, could push the territory closer to its southern neighbour and away from Britain.

Former national team manager Gordon Strachan left his job in October after Scotland failed to qualify for next year‘s football World Cup finals.
