UK - Knives Are Out As Johnson Claims Britain Will Get ‘Diddly Squat’ From Brexit

Michel Barnier, the EU’s Brexit negotiator strongly criticized the UK’s Brexit proposal of Prime Minister Theresa May over the weekend.

The deal that the Tory government has put forward, known as the now infamous ‘Chequers proposal’ already sparked the resignations of then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and former Brexit Secretary David Davis and is seen by leading ‘Brexiteers’ as inadequate.

Today, former Foreign Secretary Mr. Boris Johnson decided to up the ante on Ms. May a bit more when he used is the first column of the new political year to attack her Brexit plans, calling them entirely unsatisfying for the UK.

Mr. Johnson stated: “the reality is that in this negotiation the EU has so far taken every important trick. The UK has agreed to hand over £40 billion of taxpayers’ money for two-thirds of diddly squat.”

"The whole thing is about as pre-ordained as a bout between Giant Haystacks and Big Daddy; and in this case, I am afraid, the inevitable outcome is a victory for the EU, with the UK lying flat on the canvas and 12 stars circling symbolically over our semi-conscious head."

Although the British Prime Minister Mr. May will have to present her plan to Parliament for a vote before any Brexit deal can be finalized and many see her not reaching the necessary majority to do so, she said she was "confident" a "good deal" could be reached on Brexit.

US President Donald Trump, during his visit to the UK earlier this year, also stated in a scathing interview with the UK tabloid newspaper The Sun, that he thought the Brexit plan currently on the table was ‘not what the British people voted for.’
