  • Maidenhead MP was spotted buying jewellery in Italian town of Sirmione today
  • Theresa May wore beige trousers, a navy sleeveless top and white Converse
  • Comes as successor told Irish counterpart UK would be leaving EU in October

Theresa May has put all thoughts of Brexit behind her this week as she relaxes on holiday in Lake Garda.

The former prime minister has been enjoying the summer recess, which started on Thursday, and her newfound freedom since Boris Johnson took over the top job.

It’s not known how much negotiation was involved or if any red lines were discussed, but Mrs May successfully cut a deal with a Sirmione shopkeeper to buy some jewellery. 

The Maidenhead MP cut a casual figure in white Converse trainers, beige trousers and a navy sleeveless top.

Her husband Philip donned a patterned shirt, black jeans and a baseball cap as the pair strolled through the streets of the beautiful town.

The Mays regularly visit the area, having holidayed at Italy’s biggest lake for at least the past two years.

Back in the UK, Mrs May’s successor told his Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar we would be leaving ‘come what may’ on October 31.

The conversation came after claims that Mr Johnson had been ‘snubbing’ Mr Varadkar as he takes a hard line against the EU.

Mr Johnson has demanded Brussels drops the hated Irish border backstop from the divorce deal altogether, warning negotiations will not happen unless the bloc is willing to revisit the issue. 

The premier has solemnly vowed to take the UK out of the EU by the end of October, with or without a deal.

After the call a Downing Street spokeswoman said: ‘On Brexit, the Prime Minister made clear that the UK will be leaving the EU on October 31, no matter what.

‘He said that in all scenarios, the Government will be steadfast in its commitment to the Belfast Agreement and will never put physical checks or physical infrastructure on the border.

‘The Prime Minister made clear that the Government will approach any negotiations which take place with determination and energy and in a spirit of friendship, and that his clear preference is to leave the EU with a deal, but it must be one that abolishes the backstop.’ 

But Dublin said Mr Varadkar invited the UK PM to Dublin but reiterated the Withdrawal Agreement will not be reopened, and any deal must include the ‘necessary’ backstop.
