Jacob Rees-Mogg insults Juncker over Brexit ‘divorce bill’


Tory backbencher lashed out the EU boss, Mr Juncker yesterday labelling him a “poundshop Bismarck” after he criticised Britain’s Brexit negotiating position and demanded the UK commit to paying a divorce bill.

Mr Rees-Mogg told The Sun: “Mr Juncker’s effort to extort money from us shows he is an amateur even at blackmail.”

He added: “Mr Juncker is a pound shop Bismarck, arrogant and bullying but without the charm.”

“We need to be crystal clear that we will commence no negotiations on the new economic and trade relationship between the UK and the EU before all these questions are resolved,” he said.

I personally think Jacob is spot on, as usual.
