But Britons have not been happy following this news coming to light.

Taking to the comments section, Express.co.uk were in full voice against the EU and in support of the UK.

Salty Sue wrote: “Do it. Trigger article 16.

“We don’t care about the EU.

“We’ll trade with the rest of the world.

“Tariffs work both ways…”
