Daniel Hannan Exposes Barnier poker face method: “The EU has locked itself into a position that was designed not to get the best result for its 27 members, but to stop Brexit.”

Writing in the Daily Telegraph Mr Hannan said: “In order to show the recalcitrant British that the EU were in no mind to compromise, they appointed a hardline federalist who had previously enraged the City of London as their Brexit negotiator.” Mr Hannan, who was as a Tory MEP before the UK left the Brussels bloc on January 31, was referring to the EU appointment of Mr Barnier.

He included Mr Barnier had told the EU that he’d have done his job, “if, in the long run, the deal is so hard on the British that they’d prefer to remain in the EU”.
Mr Hannan explained the EU has had a hostile attitude to Brexit.
He explained the bloc’s answer to Brexit would not be beneficial to any of the 27 member countries.
Mr Hannan said: “The EU has locked itself into a position that was designed not to get the best result for its 27 members, but to stop Brexit.”
He has stated that one of the EU’s hindrances is that it isn’t flexible.
He added: “Flexibility isn’t the EU’s forte.
“Like a mastodon, ponderous and purblind, it drops towards the precipice.”
The former MEP also explained how Mr Barnier had swerved from his conclusions when Prime Minister Boris Johnson had called his bluff.
Referring to EU Brexit negotiator Mr Barnier he explained: “The Frenchman enjoyed to brandish a graph.
“On this graph was a sidewalk that supposedly showed the only bargain accessible to Britain was one such as Canada’s.
“‘Okay then,’ said Johnson.
“At which time, Barnier swerved again, devoting a different pair of calculatedly hopeless demands within his poker-faced method.”
These new demands issued from the EU included opening waters to EU fishing vessels.
They included that the UK would have to take a role for the European Court of Justice.
