Merkel will NOT be a ‘friend’ on Brexit! UK-German envoy in shock warning to Britain
The comments come after Mrs Merkel warned against Theresa May’s vow to cut immigration, saying Britain would pay the “price” by taking control of its borders.
She also insisted the EU would consider the views of Remain voters when Brexit negotiations finally get underway later this year.
The German leader said: “If the British Government ends the free movement of people, that will have its price.
“This isn’t malicious, but they cannot say there will be an upper limit of 100,000 or 200,000 EU citizens, no more.
“That will not work. We would have to think about what obstacle we create from the European side to compensate for that.”
