Lol - the Uk sent over Cox to sort out the EU last week - guess what he did first?
According to a senior official, when Michel Barnier welcomed him to Brussels, Cox boomed: “I haven’t been here in forty years!”
So reported Tony Connolly, EU guys figured it as him wearing a badge of honour - likely a language issue.
Then came the clincher as reported:
Cox infuriated Barnier’s deputy Sabine Weyand by calling her “my dear” during what were described as “robust” exchanges.
And so the legal advice caused no.2 agreement failure - he should have read bacon’s post first
