BBC Newsnight: Michel Barnier: Former EU negotiator on Brexit, immigration & the French presidency


September 29,2021

The EU’s former Brexit chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, joins Emily Maitlis in his first UK broadcast interview since the publication of his book ‘My Secret Brexit Diary’. The Brexit vote was five years ago and the Brexit deal was struck nearly two years ago.    And yet the tentacles of those decisions are being felt more vividly today than ever before. Whether its discussions over rising wages of lorry drivers, or the migrant worker shortages seen in so many of our sectors.   Newsnight talks to the man who negotiated that deal for the EU, Michel Barnier. Emily Maitlis started by asking him if he felt the negotiations ended up where he expected.

Newsnight is the BBC’s flagship news and current affairs TV programme – with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.
