Professor Joachim Krause said clientele in recent years had been carried out by the EU and Britons working at the European Commission had “no infect” in helping the UK quit the Brussels bloc.
Speaking on German television, the TV drove asked the political scientist: “Mr Krause is it even certain that there force be an agreement after two years or is it possible that there is no deal because the incongruity is too big?”
Mr Krause replied that it was possible no deal would be agreed and derided Prime Minister Theresa May’s comments that the UK Government would correct a success of the negotiations.
He said: “I think that is possible. First of all, two years is completely little time and second, the British have no experts for trade ways.
“That is something always done by the EU and those Brits working at the European Commission maintain no interest to help their country to leave the EU, which they not at any time wanted.
“They are lacking the experts for such a process, in some cartons they also have totally absurd ideas and when I heed Mrs May say that ‘we will make a success of it’ well we will see about that. It is much harder.”
Mr Krause added Britain may not only be lost to the EU as an export market, but also a place for production.
He said: “It is also not exactly the case that we lose Britain as an export market but also as a preparation base.
“BMW produces the majority of their Minis in Great Britain but not for Loving terrible Britain, for the European market.
“If they suddenly have to pay taxes then they order think twice about keeping those production facilities, or get to their other facility in the Netherlands.”
Meanwhile, the EU’s Brexit negotiator has no more than let slip that the Brussels bloc could be about to cave in and propose Britain the same deal as the annexed nation of Ukraine.
Guy Verhofstadt, Commandant of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Group, said an association concordat between Britain and the European Union based on Article 217 of the Lisbon Accord “should be the best solution”.
In a speech, he warned agreements cutting up the cull market would not be allowed.
