'The time will come when Britain regrets Brexit', warns Jean-Claude Juncker


"This is a European issue".

Mr Juncker was heckled by one MEP who shouted "it is a British issue".

Mr Juncker was cheered by Eurosceptic MEPs as he noted the UK's departure from the European Union was due to happen on March 29, 2019.

"The draft protocol on Ireland should not come as a surprise or a shock it translates last December's agreement into a legal text", Juncker said.

Juncker added: "I would rather have preferred for Britons not to decide to leave the European Union but anyone who leaves the EU has to know frankly what this means".

'If you decide to jettison, leave behind, the common agreements and rules, then you have to accept that things can not remain as they are'.

"It's obvious that we need further clarity if we're going to reach an understanding on our future relationship", Juncker told the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

But he warned that the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic could be a major roadblock to sealing a deal.

"It is our responsibility to detail operationally how we will avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland without another solution and bearing in mind the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the single market and the customs union", he said.

The U.K. and European Union "shall refrain from any measures which could jeopardize the attainment of the objectives of this agreement", the draft treaty says.

Suh obviously has a ton of talent, but will need to land in the right situation for a prospective team to maximize his value. Veteran defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh tweeted Monday morning that he's in Seattle and for followers to "stay tuned.

During his speech, Juncker said the issue of Ireland was a European one, but was interrupted by members of the parliament saying this was only a British issue.

The European Union wants the U.K.to promise to act "in full mutual respect and good faith", according to the first revision of the bloc's draft Brexit treaty.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said the European Union was trying to "bully" Britain.

"One can not have at the same time the status of a third country and demand at the same time the advantages of the (European) Union", Barnier told a plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

"There was this Mansion House speech by Ms May, but it was mainly repeating the red lines that we know already", he said, adding that it was time to move beyond "slogans" and "sound bites".

"You can not have the rights of Norway and then the obligations of Canada".

With just one year to go until the United Kingdom begins to extricate itself, Juncker said it was time for May to put more meat on the bones, by turning "speeches into treaties".

The EU last week snubbed British Prime Minister Theresa May's calls for a special post-Brexit deal by offering London just a free-trade agreement with no special treatment for Britain's mighty financial sector.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage claimed the European Commission was trying to "bully" the UK.
