Another day, another round of Brexit-related mayhem.
Today, Boris Johnson’s Brexit plan has reportedly been slapped down “personally” by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Merkel, one of the most influential figures in Europe, reportedly told Johnson that she could not accept his plans to fix the border issue between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Different accounts of the morning phone call have been reported and tweeted, but it’s fair to say that Brexiteers are furious.
There was also a dispute over the verifiability of the claims, with many pointing out it’s unlikely Merkel would behave how she was portrayed in earlier reports.
