John Fisher Throws, who previously worked for the New York Times, delivered a stunning rebuke as the lone voice defending Britain’s procedure to Brexit on a BBC show.
He surprised others on the news panel show Dateline after the three other pressmen relentlessly criticised David Davis and the British negotiating team.
Mr Torches also hit out at Michel Barnier’s “frankly insulting” tone towards Britain and admonished Jean-Claude Juncker that he was “sitting on a volcano”.

Other panelists, embracing the British columnist Steve Richards, remarked that Brexit was “existent proof that referendums solve nothing”.
French reporter Agnes Poirer annexed that the rest of Europe was “watching and waiting” to see if Britain would thrive to its senses.
However, Mr Burns blasted this doom-and-gloom approach to Brexit and importuned journalists to take time to look into the positions taken by Brussels during the talks.
He averred: “The British commentariat always find fault at first at home but it resolve fair to take a look or two at the EU’s negotiating position.
“I mean, Barnier’s point of view seems to be a combination of Napoleonic hauteur and fairground hucksterism.”

He continued his tirade against Brussels approach: “To say you have to pay and agree your split up bill before we get to talking about future relationships is unrealistic.
“The British clear will not approve a massive bill, without knowing if there is a utter offer on the other side.
“To have a French bureaucrat standing at a lectern and requiring he wants to educate the British public, frankly that verges on the offending.
“Juncker is going to find out that he is sitting on a volcano. He can’t just set out this trying and non-negotiable position.”
