Prove yourself Mr Barnier and don't cut off your nose to spite your face!

Miichel Barnier can’t give us a reasonable deal because of his concern about other countries following us through the exit door, which will lead to the EU’ s eventual demise.

Does he not consider that he’s possibly cutting off his nose to spite his face; playing at being the big Mr European as he chases, what is privately being discussed in Brussels, his ambition to be the next Commission president?
