‘EU will negotiate FOREVER!’ Ukip leader rails against EU chiefs over Brexit deadline

UKIP leader Henry Bolton lambasted European Union negotiators saying Brussels will “negotiate forever” on Brexit if they have the chance.

Mr Bolton said the UK Brexit team should not allow “endless talks” and that European Unionchiefs would “string us along”.Speaking on the Today programme, on BBC Radio 4, the new party leader warned preparations needed to be put in place immediately to leave without a deal.

He said: “I do not believe for a moment that we should be pushing this out and allowing the negotiations to be endless before we leave.

“It is absolutely crucial that this country is fully prepared to walk away because otherwise the European Union is going to be negotiating forever on this and they’re just going to string us along.”

Mr Bolton added a deadline should be put on negotiations so if they had not moved forward by a set time, Britain walked away from the table.He said: “We need to be putting now, we need to be doing planning and preparation and putting all the various pieces in place so that we are ready to do so.”

Asked if he thought a deal should include membership of the single market and customs union, he replied “no” and said there should only be a “brief” transition period.

Mr Bolton also blasted Theresa May on ongoing Brexit talks saying the UK was leaving the European Union “in name only”.
