Cracks appearing? Merkel ‘furious’ with Juncker over leaks from disastrous Brexit dinner
Mrs May has made it clear she does not want leaks about the Brexit negotiations but many doubt that such secrecy is achievable when Brexit issues affect the interests of 27 other EU countries.
Among the many potential sticking points are the size of the UK’s Brexit bill.
Brexit Secretary David Davis accused the European Commission of “trying to bully the British people” with an £85bn divorce bill from the EU.
Mr Juncker said: “We will negotiate fairly with our British friends, but let’s not forget that it is not the EU that is abandoning the UK – it is the UK that’s abandoning the EU, and that makes a difference.”
