Seething EU diplomat reveals plans to sabotage UK in revenge for Brexit

The europhile, who watched from the United Nations as Theresa May triggered Article 50, reportedly said: “Britain has shot itself in the foot. We intend to shoot you in the other.”His comments, made to the BBC’s UN correspondent Nick Bryant, signal a bitter road ahead for Brexit negotiations, despite top Brussels chiefs outlining how they want friendly talks.The very undiplomatic words raises the prospect some resentful European countries could secretly be wanting to deliberately punish the UK for invoking Article 50 and leaving the European Union (EU).
