European Union denies leaking that Theresa May "begged for help" over dinner

'Anxious' Theresa May begged Jean-Claude Juncker for help at Brexit dinner, leak claims EU denies leaking that Theresa May "begged for help" over dinner

According to a leaked version of the meal Mr Juncker described the United Kingdom prime minister as looking extremely exhausted with "rings under her eyes" and said he felt she appeared to be losing sleep over Brexit. She was in good shape, she was not exhausted.

Asked by the BBC in Brussels about the report, Juncker denied the leak came from him.

He tweeted: 'After constructive Council meeting, Selmayr does this.

The prime minister's former chief of staff, Nick Timothy, has laid the blame for the highly unflattering account at the feet of Martin Selmayr, who acts as Juncker's right-hand man and has been variously described as "Darth Vader", "Rasputin", and "The Monster". This is one of the conditions needed to move on to the second phase of the talks regarding the future of relations between London and Brussels. I know it does't fit your cliché, @NickJTimothy.

"I have to be very clear that President Juncker would have never used the words attributed to him, and never would he have said anything like this". "Who? is the real question".

Juncker claimed yesterday that he had no idea who was behind the leaks and that the reports were false.

Mr Selmayr has denied having been the source of the leak or the Commission seeking to punish Britain, denouncing what he called "an attempt to frame European Union side and to undermine talks". "We would appreciate if these people would leave us alone".

Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told reporters: "Some people like to point at us to serve their own political agendas ... or even to undermine our own negotiating position".

It follows a leak in FAZ following a dinner between the pair at Downing Street earlier this year, after which Mr Juncker was claimed to be "10 times more sceptical" that a Brexit deal could be reached.

Hans-Olaf Henkel, in particular, has been open about his belief that senior figures such as Juncker, lead negotiator Michel Barnier, and the EU Parliament's Brexit representative Guy Verhofstadt are on a mission to "punish" Britain and "want to make a mess out of this whole unhappy situation".
