EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker doubts Europe 'will remain united during Brexit talks'

President of the European Commission thinks Brexit will divide the 27 EU nationsHe said Britain will make different promises to each country during negotiationsHe's also added he doesn't plan to stand for another term when he finishesNigel Farage said the comments show Brussels is 'nervous' about UK tactics 

The president of the European Commission has raised concerns for the unity of the rest of the bloc as Brexit negotiations start in the next few weeks.

Jean-Claude Juncker said he thinks Britain will divide the European Union's remaining 27 nations by making different promises to each country during the Brexit process.

Juncker told Deutschlandfunk radio: 'The other EU 27 don't know it yet, but the Brits know very well how they can tackle this.

'They could promise country A this, country B that and country C something else and the end game is that there is not a united European front.' 

Britain will by the end of March trigger formal divorce talks with the EU, a major test for the bloc which is struggling to have a grip on other challenges like keeping Greece in the euro zone, the refugee crisis and the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president.

The Netherlands, France and Germany are also holding general elections this year, in which populist anti-EU parties are expected to make strong showings.

Juncker added: 'Now everyone is saying in relation to Trump and Brexit: "Now is Europe's big chance. Now is the time to close ranks and march together".
