Today, the EU launched another threat towards the UK just days before we enter into the 9th round of talks next week between EU negotiator Michel Barnier and British negotiator David Frost. The two sides will be meeting in London, going head to head with only weeks left before the October deadline is breached.
EUROPEAN Council chief Charles Michel pointed a threat at the UK saying: “Access to our large market — the second-largest economic zone in the world, and the first in terms of international trade — will no longer be sold off. “From now on, we will better enforce the level playing field, in a market open to those who respect its standards.
Whether they leave our Union or want to move closer to it.”
This threat from the EU is just another way of trying to convince Boris to drop the Internal Market Bill. The EU know if the Bill passes through Parliament it destroys their leverage over the UK in regards to control and state aid.
As you can see above, they are not dropping their Level Playing Field rhetoric as that is their insurance policy. The EU is incredibly frustrated but that due to Britain refusing to sign up to their terms and their rules.
