Conservative Party MP Jacob Rees-Mogg has launched a staggering verbal attack on Jean-Claude Juncker over the ongoing Brexit negotiations.
He called the European Commission president a ‘pound shop Bismarck’ after he criticised the UK’s negotiating position.
Mr Rees-Mogg (pictured above), a firm Brexiteer, said Mr Juncker was trying to ‘extort’ money from Britain and compared him unfavourably to Otto von Bismarck, the 19th century politician credited with creating a united Germany.
Mr Juncker has warned there will be no discussions on a potential trade deal between the UK and the EU until progress is made on other issues.
But Mr Rees-Mogg told The Sun: ‘Mr Juncker’s effort to extort money from us shows he is an amateur even at blackmail.
‘Mr Juncker is a pound shop Bismarck, arrogant and bullying but without the charm.’
