    Who's to say that UK Government is not busily reading Mr Barnier's emails?

    After all the internet and computers were invented by spies and code-breakers for the purpose of spying.

    Why do you think he "should know better"? He's always been a mediocrity, now put centre stage because of Brexit.
    What's scary is this talk of him becoming Tory leader. You'd think nothing could be worse than May, but you'd be wrong

    I totally agree and he is actually one of the better candidates



    This is precisely why Corbyn looks like a great statesman.

    Bar a shocking conference speech in 2005, he would've been Tory leader. Either way, he's an experienced politician. Mediocrity, fine, whatever, but he's been around the block. If your three counterparts are walking into a staging room with a few trees worth of "briefing documents", you should know something's amiss. If you leave the negotiating room after an hour, you should know what to expect in the Grauniad and the Windy. Perhaps he knows all this, but simply doesn't give a crap. He should.

    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?
