Boris Johnson threatens to destroy the EU

Unlike his predecessor, the totally inept Theresa May, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson fully understands the EU and how it works. He is, therefore, the EU Brexit negotiating team's worst nightmare, writes former European Parliament advisor and EU Today publisher Gary Cartwright.

Should the EU attempt to delay Brexit, Johnson is threatening to paralyse the bloc by exercising a veto over the EU budget. Should he do this, and he can, the EU would find itself penniless for up to seven years. 

The mood in Downing Street as said to be "hostile" as Brussels appears to be reluctant to even consider Johnson's "final" offer of a deal. London is said to be preparing to send a Commissioner to the EU who has been described to EU Today as a "saboteur".
