The German Chancellor said today during a phone call with Boris Johnson that unless Northern Ireland was left behind in a customs union then a deal is “overwhelmingly unlikely”. The Brexit Party leader decided to hit back on Twitter today with a stunning response to Ms Merkel’s renewed stance.

Mr Farage, who has always championed a no deal Brexit, wrote on Twitter that the choice was “now clear” for the UK.

He tweeted: “No British Government could ever accept Germany telling us that part of the UK has to stay in the EU.

“The choice now is clear: A clean break Brexit, or stay in a new militarised empire.

“Time to choose freedom.”

His response to today’s events garnered a significant amount of support on the social media site, with many claiming that the Brexit Party leader was correct.

One user said: “Totally agree.

“The EU want total surrender. We MUST leave with a clean break Brexit.”

Another user replied: “EU seeking to suppress and control every element of UK political and economic decision-making.

“She made clear a deal is overwhelmingly unlikely and she thinks the EU has a veto on us leaving the customs union.

“Merkel said that if Germany wanted to leave the EU they could do it no problem but the UK cannot leave without leaving Northern Ireland behind in the customs union and in full alignment forever.

On Tuesday night, Downing Street said the EU now had 24 hours to find a compromise, otherwise, the negotiations between Mr Johnson and the EU would collapse for good.

The No 10 source added: “Ms Merkel said that Ireland is the government’s special problem and Ireland must at least have a veto on Northern Ireland leaving.

“Merkel said that the Prime Minister should tell northern Ireland that it must stay in full alignment forever, but that even this would not eliminate customs issues.

“It was a very useful clarifying moment in al sorts of ways.

“If this represents a new established position, then it means a deal is essentially impossible, not just now but forever.

“It also made clear that they are willing to torpedo the Good Friday Agreement.”

The European Parliament President David Sassoli met with the Prime Minister today and said that the UK had two options: “extension or no deal”.

He also said that there had been no negotiations and that if the UK opted to leave the EU without a deal, then the responsibility would fall on the Government.

He added that extended the Brexit deal could only be granted with a “good reason”.
