    Britain's Brexit negotiators denied water by Brussels during divorce talks, civil servant claims

    "Britain’s Brexit negotiators have been denied water during showdown talks in Brussels as the EU sought to gain a competitive advantage over the UK, a civil servant has revealed.

    The anonymous official said a lack of water available during talks may have been evidence of “unsporting tactics to get the upper hand”.

    They also outlined the scale of “paranoia” within the British camp, highlighting fears of phone tapping and a ban on the wearing of smart watches to prevent leaks.

    The account comes after The Telegraph revealed David Davis is carrying his Brexit documents and electronic equipment in a briefcase fitted with a Faraday cage to protect against hacking."

    First, deny them water.
    Next, turn up the heat.

    These are classic negotiation tactics.

    Hacking?

    Most likely its being done by GCHQ who want to know what, if any, position the UK has.

    The Brits expect fair play in the negotiations?
    What a bunch of whiners, really don't like a taste of their own medicine.

    Yep.

    "Johnny Foreigner had clearly attempted some unsporting tactics to get the upper hand”.

    The sooner they leave the better. They are excellent whingers, it's very tiresome.

    They won't need so much water in December.

    Next phase of Brexit negotiations 'likely delayed' to December - Sky sources

    (There's an attempt in some quarters to spin a positive light on this because a new German government (post the Sep election) might be more sympathetic to British interests but it's really just trying to present a difficulty as an advantage.)
