Farage: British People Being “Taken For Mugs”.
Theresa May’s humiliation was completed yesterday as EU Leaders agreed to start the second phase of Brexit negotiations but not until March. Britain will first have to negotiate terms of its surrender, ie, the conditions for the operation of the so-called ‘transitional period’ which will see it remain, in the painfully precise language of Jacob Rees-Mogg a ‘colony’ of the EU.
Nigel Farage was equally as blunt:
If trade talks do not begin until March then why did Theresa May leave Downing Street so early last Friday?
We’ve been taken for mugs, no wonder the EU leaders applauded her last night
Meanwhile, speaking to a Commonwealth conference, Liam Fox, International Trade Secretary has criticised Remoaners for constantly talking down Britain. He said the “greatest amount” of negativity comes from those inside the U.K. who are “not reconciled to the referendum result”.
Next year will clearly be a crucial phase in the battle for Brexit.
