Fury as Blair gatecrashes Brexit talks for Juncker love-in

TONY Blair’s meeting with EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker has been branded a “kiss of death for nation state democracy” i

The former Labour prime minister, Tony Blair arrived at the Commission’s Berlaymont building in the Belgian capital at 11am.

It is reported that Mr Blair arrived for intimate talks with the powerful eurocrat.

Nigel Farage commented on the meeting, telling Express.co.uk: “That was Juncker’s kiss of death for nation state democracy.”

During the Brexit press conference one journalist asked about the meeting: “It cannot be helpful having former Prime Minister Tony Blair here hugging and kissing Jean Claude Junker?”

Mr Davis dismissed the inquiry away saying: “I’m not going to comment on private citizens.”

The EU Commission spokesman Alexander Winterstein insisted the meeting is “nothing out of the ordinary” and that it was perfectly usual for Mr Juncker to meet personal friends.

He said: “The president is in contact with…his peers from the previous times, after he was prime minister for 20 years, and Tony Blair is one of these peers. They are good friends, they’ve known each other for a very long time.”

He added: “This is absolutely nothing out of the extraordinary. The president’s door is always open and he looks for a timing which works for both of them. No conspiracy there, I’m afraid.”

Former Ukip leader Mr Farage commented on the trip.

He said: “Blair’s interference and desire to sell out our country never stops. The Remaniac-in-chief has no position or power any more, only delusions.”
