Hard Brexit fanatic Nigel Farage has once again been baiting the very people the UK needs to keep on side – the ones we are about to spend months negotiating with.

Farage warned Jean-Claude Juncker his “bloody rude” behaviour and attempt to “bully the Brits” could force Britain to walk away from Brexit talks within months.

The former UKIP leader went on to claim the EU needs to make “grown-up, reasonable” demands or face the prospect of the UK withdrawing from the negotiations by the end of the year.

In the type of rant MEP Farage has made his calling card he also claimed the Eurovision Song Contest made Juncker look “a bit silly” for mocking the English language, given that 90% of the songs were performed in English.

His attack came after European Commission president Juncker said the Brexit process shows how “united and prepared” the EU will be.

European Council president Donald Tusk also insisted the conduct of the talks must “show the European Union at its best”, adding this involves “unity, political solidarity and fairness towards the United Kingdom”.
