'UK is a colony!' What the EU REALLY thinks? Shock BBC outburst reveals Brexit 'defeat'

A SHOCK outburst on a BBC news panel when he admitted that Brexiteers were right when they claimed that Theresa May's Brexit draft deal turned Britain into a "colony" of the EU.

Belgian journalist Marc Roche gave an insight into how Europeans views the draft deal agreed by Theresa May's cabinet in a set of shocking remarks. Speaking on BBC Dateline, the European-based journalist admitted that Brexiteers were correct to describe Britain as a "colony and a vassal state". The terms are often used by leading Brexiteer MPs like Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg to dimiss the deal agreed between the EU and UK negotiators.

Sunday Telegraph columnist Janet Daley ripped into the draft agreement which looks set to be approved at the EU summit tomorrow.

She told the BBC panel show: "It is a basic principle of modern democracy that the legitimacy of the law is derived from the will of the people.

"If we stay in, without a voice on making the laws, making the rules, making the regulations and we accept, as a colony or a conquered nation, rules made by other countries, then we are losing the plot."

Marc Roche then interrupted the Brexit supporter: "You are a colony! You are a vassal state!
