    Eurocrat labels Boris Johnson a 'TRAITOR' for 'pushing Britain out of the EU'

    Guy Verhofstadt today labelled Boris Johnson a 'traitor' in an incendiary speech in the European Parliament as the EU and UK remained locked in a state of Brexit stalemate.

    The European Parliament's Brexit co-ordinator said the proposals put forward by Mr Johnson last week were 'not serious' as he accused the PM of 'pushing Britain' out of the bloc.

    Mr Verhofstadt claimed Mr Johnson treated anyone who opposed him on Brexit as a 'traitor' or as a 'collaborator' before telling MEPs that the 'real traitor' was actually the British PM.

    He said: 'All those who are not playing his game are traitors, or collaborators, or surrenderers.

    'Well, in my opinion, dear colleagues, the real traitor is he or she who would risk bringing disaster upon his country, its economy, its citizens by pushing Britain out of the European Union. That is, in my opinion, a traitor.'

    Mr Verhofstadt's comments are likely to further sour an already difficult and tense relationship between the EU and UK which is increasingly feeling the strain as the October 31 Brexit deadline approaches.

    If anyone is a traitor are those who foolish support the failing the Modern day USSR.

    To keep fundamentally different people (language, economic and moral beliefs, etc.) on the same same, nondivergent path, you will need a tyrant to force them together. The greater the difference and more divergent the path, the stricter the tyranny must be. If the tyranny isn't strong enough, the differing people must be allowed their schism or there will be war. This is the historic woe of mankind.

    At least he's honest.
