Forget Juncker! Farage says ignore EU bosses over Brexit and go straight to heads of state

NIGEL FARAGE has revealed exactly what Theresa May needs to do to ensure the UK gets the best possible deal with the European Union.

To make Brexit successful the United Kingdom have to go above the EU commission and talk directly to heads of state, according to Nigel Farage.The former Ukip leader and MEP insisted that to ensure the UK gets the best possible deal, Britain needed to be communicating with countries in the EU 27, directly.

Mr Farage’s comments come amid anger following a swipe from Michel Barnier over the weekend which suggested it was his job to teach the UK a lesson for its decision to leave the European Union.

Jean-Claude Juncker in previous weeks has also blasted the UK as he said Britain’s Brexit papers were not “satisfactory”.

Nigel Farage told Theresa May to go straight to heads of state in the EU 27


“You just look at the body language, last week with him and Barnier. Barnier was tetchy.

“I am saying that Theresa May needs to go on the 19 October to that summit of all of Europe’s leaders and she has got to say that these guys, namely the European Commission, are doing their utmost to stop a deal from happening because they want to keep the EU together. This is bad news.”

Mr Farage added: “It’s probably Mrs Merkel and Mr Marcron and everyone else I guess, and really, we have got to appeal above the heads of the negotiators.

We have got to go straight to national Governments and indeed national companies

“We have got to go straight to national Governments and indeed national companies to say a trade deal is in everyone’s interests.”Adam Boulton stepped in insisting that keeping all countries within the EU 27 was part of countries interests.

The MEP raged: “Well there are obviously concerns that countries like Denmark, for argument’s sake, could have a referendum on this two or three years down the road.

“But ultimately, when it comes to a crisis and what a national leader has to decide, do they put the EU first, or do they put my country and my electorate first.

“We know what they choose and I think we are reaching a very important moment.”

The chief negotiator later tweeted: “I said: Brexit = occasion to explain single market benefits in all countries, incl my own. We do not want to ‘educate’ or ‘teach lessons’.”

His comments came after last week concluded the third round of Brexit talks, in which the Brexit Secretary called for the EU to be more imaginative, to allow a deal to be agreed that benefits both sides.

Mr Davis responded sharply after the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator said sufficient progress had not been made in the week’s discussions.
