Negotiations will be heating up over the next few weeks after Barnier is said to be getting his blame game ready over concerns of a break down in trade talks.
Barnier said to the Sun Newspaper that he believes Downing Street could enter into a serious “blame game” over the slow progress in negotiation talks. After analysing these talks over the last few years, the blame game always comes from the EU as has been evident in the previous few post negotiation press conferences where Barnier blames the UK for being halfhearted in these trade talks.
It is also evident that the trade talk demands coming from the EU are anti sovereign and do not respect the UK’s autonomy and self-governing sovereign nations and therefore can not be accepted by the UK as it goes forward-looking to “champion free trade” from around the world.
The EU has said that a deal is looking very unlikely to happen after the seventh round of talks ended in another stalemate.
Brexiteer Ben Habib said Michel Barnier is acting over-confident in the Brexit trade talks.
Mr Habib said: “Michel Barnier is having a laugh at our expense.”
“I think he feels that he has got the UK on the same sort of backfoot that he had Theresa May on.”
“We have got to disabuse him on that.”
“Until we can convince the EU that we are serious about leaving without a deal they will keep messing us about.”
“The best way to convince them is to just walk away.”
He added: “I suspect that Boris Johnson doesn’t believe in a no-deal Brexit, for all of his championing and bravado.”
“You might recall that last year, or so they said we would be out by the 31st of October with or without a deal.”
“But actually I don’t think they believe in no deal.”
“Michael Gove, who is in charge of no-deal planning, is on the record saying he doesn’t believe in no-deal and that he believes it would be bad for the United Kingdom.”
