Let it crumble……..
Brussels admits it faces an ‘explosive’ crisis if UK refuses Brexit bill: Chief negotiator makes shock admission that the bloc could crumble if Britain resists payment
- Michael Barnier, EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, issued warning about fragile bloc
- Analysts say settlement has ballooned to around 100bn euros (£85bn)
- EU’s latest demands were rejected by Brexit Secretary David Davis
Brussels admitted yesterday that it faces an ‘explosive’ political crisis if the UK refuses to pay a multi-billion pound Brexit bill.
Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, warned the fragile bloc could crumble if Britain resists demands for the settlement which, say analysts, has ballooned to around 100billion euros (£85billion).
His shock admission came as Brussels added more hard-line conditions to its aggressive negotiating stance.
The bloc called for EU citizens who arrive in the UK just a day before Brexit to be granted full residency rights which can later extend to their families.
