BRITAIN should prepare for a serious diplomatic bust-up with Brussels during the forthcoming Brexit negotiations, a top professor warned.

Matthew Goodwin, lecturer of politics at the University of Kent, claimed the European Union would work to ensure the UK’s divorce talks do not run smoothly.

He argued the bloc would try to make the process confrontational to ensure the remaining 27 countries do not follow Britain’s historic vote to leave the EU.

Speaking to RT, Professor Goodwin said: “It is likely we’re going to have some public bust-ups over the next couple of years.

“We are going to have some pretty heated debates and divisions because that’s the nature of politics, but also because the EU doesn’t want to see anybody leave smoothly.”

He continued: “That’s the key problem, if we do leave smoothly and we’re seen to be given a good deal, that’s going to emboldened Eurosceptics in other key countries like Marine Le Pen, the Italians, the Austrian Eurosceptics, so this does have the potential for a pretty serious diplomatic bust-up.”
