  1. Grown up

    Theresa May wants a 'grown up' relationship between the UK countries. Does she mean a) the smaller countries will be treated as adults i.e. equals now or b) the smaller countries must stop behaving like spoilt little children and to shut up and do as they are told? Just wondering.
