‘So you had an election then?’ chuckles Juncker
JEAN Claude Juncker has opened Brexit negotiations with the UK by chuckling away like an easily amused child.
The EU commission president entered the meeting room in Brussels laughing and showing one his aides something on his phone before asking Brexit secretary David Davis what he had been up to recently.
Juncker added: “Been on holiday, read any good books, held any hopelessly misjudged general elections?
“And are you going to Glastonbury, or are you going to be too busy with work?”
Davis replied with an exaggerated yawn and a remark about ‘European humour’ before adding: “So how the fuck does this work?”
