Is M16 BUGGING the Brexit talks? Concerns raised about British intelligence interference

BRITISH intelligence may be intervening in the ongoing Brexit negotiations, obtaining secret EU papers just hours after their private release, according to a top European source.

The source told The Daily Telegraph that the EU’s Brexit negotiating team fear they are being bugged, with the UK team getting hold of secret files “within hours” of them being presented to EU officials.

According to the source concerns were raised at a meeting of the European Council, which includes the leaders of all EU member states as well as top Brussels officials, on July 12.

Sabine Wayard, the European Commission’s Deputy Chief Negotiator, reportedly told the meeting that “it could not be excluded” that their meetings were being bugged by the Brits.
