Eurocrats advised not to drink during Brexit negotiations due to heat – Telegraph.co.uk
Whether David Davis will be seen in casual attire sipping on an orange juice remains to be seen.
Officials at the EU’s Committee of the Regions were told:
- “No suits and ties where possible”
- “You are advised not to drink alcohol”
- “Switch off the lights”
Staff were also told that they may get to leave work at the early time of 4pm if temperatures exceed 30 degrees celcius.
This seems very likely; temperatures in Brussels are forecast to reach of 31° C from 2pm onwards.
Mr Davis will kick off historic Brexit talks today after he was floated as a potential unity candidate to lead the Conservative Party by allies of Mr Johnson.
