    There it is you see. The EU is trying to dominate the world and they can't - they are so deluded they can't see their own crap.

    Australia try to sign up a new trade deal with UK outside the EU. Europe said it must sign a free trade treaty with them first.

    I am not sure but it seems to be a threat that we can not have free trade with UK outside the EU and have free trade with an EU country.
    I agree it is childish. We already have free trade wit several countries like China and it does not mean we can''t have others.

    Exactly. It's foolhardy to refuse trading over this and it harms them worse than it hurts you. I have to believe it's bluster and all will be set aside when the time comes.

    I see Junker is still being pushy and making up rules saying that the UK must allow free movement if they want to be in the single market. Doesn't he read the papers or listen to the news?

    The free movement of people across the EU is at the core of why Brexit is happening... duh.

    Scottish National Party MPs were told off by Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle shouting "ORDER!" for whistling and singing the EU anthem "Ode to joy" in the House of Commons:

    .... that's very kind of him.
    The rest is rhetorical bullshit straight from the mouth of a master of rhetorical bullshit. His and Brown's infatuation with the religion of globalisation at any cost so long as it feeds the price bubble is exactly the reason why we're at this point. The best thing he can do for the UK is stop writting, stick his head up his ass and fart.

    Not too sure how long but Denmark would be on my list.. I reckon a few will wait and see what sort of deal we strike with the boys from brussels before they make a shout?
