Brexit talks with EU ‘oligarchs’ is RISK to eurozone NOT UK economy – Wetherspoon’s boss

BREXIT threats from unelected European Union (EU) “oligarchs” will hurt long-suffering eurozone states far more than UK companies, according to Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin, as he savaged the negotiation tactics of Jean-Claude Juncker and Michel Barnier.

Tim Martin has attacked EU representatives over Brexit threats

Britain has the strongest “economic steroid” of democracy over the EU, and this is the key to prosperity and freedom, the pub chain boss said in a bumper trading update.And posturing by unelected representatives from the bloc is set to inflict more damage on the likes of Italy, Spain and Greece, than Britain.

The likes of Mr Juncker and Mr Barnier are simply encouraging importers such as Wetherspoon to switch away from its EU suppliers, Mr Martin warned.

And this is of huge damage to eurozone countries where unemployment is rife.

Mr Martin said many members of Britain’s establishment fails to understand that Britain has the upper hand in Brexit talks.
