Es-UKIP leader and now LBC host, Nigel Farage skewered Michae Barnier over recent Brexit talks
Talking on his LBC show, Mr Farage discussed a perceived change of tone in Mr Barnier.
He said: “That’s the first time I’ve sensed the change of tone in these negotiations.
“Suddenly Davis, to me, was looking not just like the good guy but looking like the better negotiator in many many ways.”
Mr Farage said the EU’s chief negotiator appeared rather irritable during the conference, a possible sign of major change in the process.
He said: “My observation was that Barnier – the normally suave, sophisticated Monsieur Barnier – was actually pretty tetchy.
“I almost got the feeling at times that he was perhaps boxed in by the negotiating position that he’s been given by the European Commission itself.”
He said: “Davis, in a way, did land a little bit of a blow because he said that the European Union needed to be more imaginative and more flexible in its approach.
“I kind of thought that Barnier looked at that and thought rationally: ‘You know what? Davis is probably right’.
Do you think the UK has got the upper hand here?
It’s clear that they have more to lose than we do.
I feel as if the chance of a ‘no deal’ is still firmly on the table.
A ‘No Deal’ scenario is the only way we can make sure we are free from EU control.
Thank goodness Labour are not in power, they have changed their Brexit stance significantly since the general election.
