Europeans furious as UK blocks EU budget ahead of Brexit talks
UK blocks EU budget as Europeans reject pre-negotiation games with Downing Street
EUROPEAN REPRESENTATIVES were outraged at the UK’s blocking of the EU’s long-term budget, running until 2020, at an EU council meeting this week.
The move was condemned by Michel Barnier, the chief Brexit negotiator for the European Commission, in the European Parliament. He criticised the UK for “putting up roadblocks in the EU” before its exit.
