The EU will ‘Boris-proof’ any Brexit delay
and refuse to let the UK have any say in future EU budget talks and trade deals until Britain leaves, it was revealed today.
Theresa May has left Downing Street to fly to Berlin and Paris to beg for an Article 50 extension but German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron are expected to say that the price will be a bonfire of many of the UK’s powers in Brussels.
European leaders are so spooked by the prospect of Boris Johnson or another Brexiteer taking over and causing havoc that they are even willing to stop Britain making any significant decisions while they remain members.
Mrs May wants another Brexit extension to June 30, but European leaders want a delay until March 31, 2020 and will force the UK taxpayers to fund £108m EU elections even though MEPs may never take their seats.
But all is not lost yet.
May will apparently challenge Merkel to a gurning competition, winner takes all! Merkel thinks she can win it with this face contortion
But May has far more gurning talents, shown on a regular basis around the UK and on tour
May wins it ugly? Of course.
