With Brexit negotiations expected to end in another deadlock next week, European Commission President Ursula von de Leyen is set to sideline the negotiators and meet with Boris in a high-level meeting. This would be the final attempt to broker a deal.
Mr Brexit, Nigel Farage has spoken out to warn Boris that if his stance wavers, his historical legacy as Prime Minister will be shattered. Nigel said the coming weeks would determine the course of Britain future. Boris has a strong hand in these negotiations, and the EU know this hence why his stance is based on a firm footing.
Nigel has said the PM needs to be “bold” and not cave into EU demands.
Nigel said: “Their basic sense of self-survival means they will not collapse to all of those demands.
“I suspect there will be a deal that is struck at the last minute.
“I suspect it won’t give all the things that I and the Brexit Party would want.”
He added: “But I suspect it won’t be so bad that it leaves such a big chink of daylight for others to come in.
“Frankly, if we are bold enough to live with an Australian-type rules no-deal, then I think Barnier will concede on some of these points.
“The future survival of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister and his historical legacy hangs on the next few weeks.”
He said: “For Boris and his team to give in to what Michel Barnier wants, it would be a breach of contract with the British people.
“It would also be a complete betrayal of Brexit and that support hanging by a thread would disappear.”
It was said last night that Barnier had put the word to all heads of EU nation-states to do their best to sweet talk Boris into softening his stance on his redlines, but Boris hits back saying Britain will “prosper mightily” Post Brexit even without a deal.
