Michel Barnier is appointed Brussels’ chief negotiator for the UK’s exit talks with the EU.

There is concern that Michel Barnier is no friend of the UK and there is speculation that he blames the UK for losing his job as EU commissioner for internal markets and services.

Has Jean-Claude Junker, President of the European Commission, deliberately employed Michel Barnier to ruffle Britain’s feathers?  Or does he believe that Michel Barnier will be the best person to negotiate a good deal for the EU?
