It has now become abundantly clear that the bureaucrats at the EU are doing everything they can to punish the UK for voting to leave the EU.
Even before the referendum, German finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble threatened the UK and claimed it could never get single-market access to the EU. In other words, the UK would never be granted the sort of access that non-EU members Norway and Switzerland already have.
Following the election, EU parliament president Martin Schhulz raged at the UK declaring he wanted the UK out as soon as possible, claiming that the UK was holding the EU “hostage.” Schulz, of course, is the same person who condemned the Poles for daring to elect someone that Schulz doesn’t like.
