Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson had to face a perplexing situation during his recent visit to Luxembourg. He was there to negotiate a Brexit deal that he claimed was in his mind but EU said otherwise. They said Britain offered no deal to EU.
Lunch with EU President
The British Premier joined European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker for lunch at the Bouquet Garni restaurant. But he was heckled by hundreds of Britons from the beginning of his trip.
A group of retirees living in Luxembourg welcomed Johnson in Luxembourg with slogans and banners reading Fascist, Stop the coup, Tell the truth and Shame on Boris. But the situation at the restaurant was more difficult to handle.
A group of approximately 50 protestors was present at the restaurant gate to shame the British PM for his unwelcome exit from EU. The scene created at the restaurant forced Boris to leave without addressing the gathering.
Media briefing cancelled
Boris Johnson was to meet journalists at the restaurant but he cut short his visit citing the unruly mob as the reason behind his exit from the restaurant. But Luxembourg later addressed the protestors and raised questions regarding Britain’s un-ceremonial exit from EU. The crowd cheered to his voice.
Brexit and Boris Johnson Britain is set to exit EU on October 31 with or without deal. But Boris is hopeful of negotiating a deal with EU. On the other hand the EU president is of the opinion that Britain must come with an deal acceptable to the EU.
