The high profile political insider told Harrow educated City expert David Buik that “the EU would rather surrender its own growth than see Britain thrive” - exposing the lengths Jean Claude Juncker’s team will go to just to make sure life outside the EU does not seem palatable.
It appears the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, would sacrifice the wellbeing of the Continent’s own citizens in order to preserve the crumbling political union.
Mr Buik, speaking to Express.co.uk at today’s Conservative Progress Conference in Waterloo, also attended by Tory grandee and former Prime Minister Michael Howard, said: “I have that from an impeccably reliable source.
“The EU won’t allow Britain to have a good deal for the simple reason that they have to show total resilience and that leaving the EU isn’t going to work because countries like France, Greece and Italy, which is a volcano waiting to erupt, would follow Britain out of the door.”
But the 72-year-old eurosceptic, who also works as a financial pundit at the BBC, thinks there is nothing the EU can throw at Britain’s economy that would stop it being a global powerhouse.
