Guy Verhofstadt admitted that if the UK ever reversed the article 50 process, something which many remain campaigners are trying to do, then the UK still may be blocked from staying a member of the EU.
If remainers are somehow successful and force the government to reverse the Article 50 process, then we could see the EU block the UK from rejoining.
Guy Verhofstadt said: “We don’t work with the assumption that there is a change in Britain.
“That said, it is purely a responsibility of the UK that they have to make up their mind if they want to change their decision and so on.
“But it is not an assumption under which we work.
“If it should happen then there is also naturally approval needed from the EU because, since the triggering of Article 50, it is a procedure with two parties.
“The two parties would have to agree on this, the UK but also the EU.”
It certainly would be ironic that the organisation which remain, campaigners, strive to rejoin, blocs the UK from joining again!
Even if the EU did allow the UK to join, the terms would be so unreasonable and unfair that we’d be in a worse situation than before 23rd June, 2016.
The comments followed former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s latest attempt to stop Brexit with his renewed call for a second EU referendum at the end of the negotiations.
Speaking at the UK in a changing Europe conference on Thursday, the former Labour leader argued that Theresa May is trying to avoid spelling out the detail of her plans until “we are irreversibly out of Europe”.
Mr Blair said Parliament will have the chance to “change the direction of the process” by legislating for another referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal.
