EU Boss Says Brexit Will ‘Have Negative Consequences for the British’, Wants Top EU Job for ‘Lovable’ Merkel

Any kind of Brexit will hurt the British people, European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has claimed, in an interview in which he also praised Angela Merkel as a “lovable work of art” and recommended her for a top EU job once she steps down as the Chancellor of Germany.

“Nobody knows how Brexit will end,” the European Commission chief remarked, telling the German Funke Media Group there was still a possibility of Britain having a clean, No Deal exit from the bloc,

despite Theresa May agreeing another delay of up to six months before Article 50 negotiations expire and the country actually leaves the bloc. 

“This is creating great uncertainty. There is still a fear that there will be a hard Brexit without any withdrawal treaty arrangements,” Juncker said, lamenting that the United Kingdom’s exit from Europe would “stifle growth” across the continent.

“We have to be prepared for a soft as well as a hard Brexit … [but] in any case, the exit will have negative consequences – for the British more than for the EU,” he claimed threateningly.
