Brexit talks are ludicrous – Boris can’t be blamed for walking away

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

THE message from Britain to the EU yesterday was clear. Back down or we won’t talk to you for YEARS.

Blockers, plotters and timewasters in Brussels have finally brought us to the point of no return over Brexit talks.

On October 3 we were promised “intensive” talks. In reality nothing of the sort actually happened. Then on Thursday the European Council basically restated their position back in February.

They dropped any further reference to “intensive” talks and made clear that all future moves had to be made by the UK.

That’s rich considering the UK has pushed for 51 more sessions of talks than the EU this year alone.

French leader Emmanuel Macron is so petrified of populist leaders like Marine Le Pen that he is prepared to put fishing ahead of any deal with the UK.

Rather than negotiating in good faith their entire policy has been to wait for Boris Johnson to cave in to what are ­ludicrous demands on the independent country post-Brexit Britain will be.

So the Prime Minister should not be blamed if he pulls the plug, even if a No Deal outcome is painful.

However much Remoaners may bleat, it is time to walk away for good unless the EU blockers see sense fast.

In the midst of the Covid crisis playing charades with the EU is a waste of time.

ANDY Burnham’s defiant stand against new Covid restrictions comes straight out of the Derek Hatton playbook.

Nowadays, he bangs on endlessly about the North-South divide, while still owning a £500,000 flat in London.

Burnham was at school when Left-wing firebrand Hatton drove Liverpool to the brink of bankruptcy in a stand against Margaret Thatcher.

Perhaps he only remembers the huge crowds at Hatton’s rallies — and not the redundancy notices handed to 30,000.
