I haven’t had chance to properly read the stories yet, but on Monday (16th Sept) there was due to be a meeting to discuss Brexit or something between British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and his counterpart from the diminutive European country called Luxembourg.
It would seem that the Luxembourg PM decided to be an arse, and try to set up Boris by hosting a press conference outside in front of hostile protesters who seem to provide credible evidence that the people of Luxembourg have started mating with vegetables.
Boris left the Luxembugger PM to host the Press Conference himself, with suggestions from fellow Brexiteers on social media that if they’re going to play silly sods like that they can shove any chance of a deal where the sun doesn’t shine.
[Story Continues after this…]
Personally I’m in favour of annexing Luxembourg now, or at the very least since Luxembourg is apparently a popular tax haven for companies to set up there to avoid paying more taxes than necessary, that Britain should crush them by introducing a s**tload of policies to be a far better option for companies to set up home here. If they don’t like it, tough s**t.
So Boris skipped a press conference that had conveniently been set up right next to a swarm of hostile anti-British protestors. Quite right! We’d have told them to shove it too!

No, we bloody wouldn’t. You don’t have to like Boris Johnson – or even agree with Brexit – to object to a supposed ally treating our Prime Minister so rudely. The Luxembourg PM just insulted our whole country. https://t.co/GUTDdxFgsm

Has Luxembourg PM Bettel just finished off chances of deal? Screaming mob; rude undiplomatic behaviour; insults and contempt for the British voter from this the largest recipient of our EU contributions. This could turn out to have been the tipping point https://t.co/8gcHViIDtN

Boris Johnson goes to Luxembourg is good faith. They try to fit him up with a press conference organised with hecklers. These are the people the Remainers say are our allies.

I found the people of Luxembourg to be sensible, courteous and charming, valuing their country’s important synergistic relationship with the City of London. I have no doubt that very many Luxembourgers are dismayed by their Prime Minister’s extraordinary behaviour.

The United Kingdom’s commitment to peace in Europe gave Luxembourg (my country of origin) its independence, twice in spite of Germany and France, twice in times of war.
What happened in Luxembourg today doesn’t reflect well on a country that should honour that memory.

I swear, after that stunt from Luxembourg’s PM, I’ve never wanted a no-deal Brexit more than I do now. pic.twitter.com/qvjsFOpwsm

I’ve never been more sure of my Brexit vote. This is the moment in history, where we need to take a stand against this sneering federalist arrogance, or be consumed by it.. https://t.co/oz28JBnwnf
