EU Brexit negotiators are different fish swimming in the same bowl of tears says UKIP's Nigel Farage
• Nigel Farage MEP commented on the recent appointments of Guy Verhofstadt and his former employee Didier Seeuws as chief negotiators for the EU:
"It is regrettable that the EU is taking such a puerile and partisan approach to the negotiations, there is no way they can be classed as independent when one formerly worked for the other. This is a textbook example of the Brussels bubble, different fish swimming in the same bowl of tears."
"Verhofstadt and Seeuws in no way represent the Flemish people who are increasingly Eurosceptic. This clear anti-British sentiment will only reinforce the British public's vindication over the Brexit vote."
