SECRET Government Paper Confirms EU THREATENING Switzerland: Do NOT Make Deals With Brexit Britain
Brussels has been condemned as having a “punishment agenda” to get back at Britain for voting to leave the supranational EU, starting with threats against nations like Switzerland who are attempting to strike trade deals with the UK after we leave.
It was confirmed in a private briefing that the EU is plotting an aggressive strategy to leave the UK with no option but to keep “full regulatory alignment” with the bloc after we leave.
A government minister said: “Basically they are trying to squeeze Switzerland by the *****.
“We were informed in no uncertain terms that the EU is saying to Switzerland that it cannot have a bilateral agreement with Britain. It has to choose between Britain and the EU. As things stand, obviously, it will choose the EU.”
Ardent and longstanding Brexiteer Peter Bone MP said: “If this is true it is absolutely appalling and flies in the face of the EU’s claims that it is not trying to punish Britain for Brexit.
“The European Commission needs to come clean about what it is up to.
“Under Article 50 the EU should be negotiating in good faith but this sort of behaviour suggests that it is not.”
“There isn’t any way we could do a deal if the EU is going to act in this way. If they are making these threats to Switzerland then you can bet they are doing it with other countries too.”
