Although Mr Sefcovic has offered a new package of proposals to eliminate checks on goods moving between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, insiders have warned the EU should “play hardball” with the UK. In a furious outburst, one insider claimed the EU cannot allow the UK to “destroy the agreement.”
Speaking to WELT, the diplomat said: “If one side willfully destroys an agreement by exposing essential parts of it, the other side will react in a similar way at some point. The EU can also play hardball, which shouldn’t be underestimated in London.”
Brexit Britain has secured a major climbdown in its battle with the EU but Dominic Cummings has warned Boris Johnson may “pull the rug out” on negotiations.
Although Lord Frost has secured a major climbdown from the EU, the former adviser to the Prime Minister warned Mr Johnson and the European Research Group may push for further alterations to the deal.
Praising Lord Frost, Mr Cummings said: “So much criticism from people who’ve never achieved or built anything for David Frost, who has to handle the negotiations knowing the PM can and does pull rug out any second, & with ERG nonsense offstage.
“He’s done a brilliant job in circs so tough almost nobody understands.”
