All the times Michel Barnier has told David Davis “The clock is ticking”


We have helpfully collected all the times the EU’s chief negotiator has reminded the Brexit Secretary that time is running out before Brexit. 

“The clock is ticking.”

“I spy with my little eye something beginning with “The clock is tick-…”

“Have you heard the one about the clock and the ticking?”

“I’ve just clocked that ticking clock on the wall has been ticking like clockwork.”

“And let me be clear that every tick corresponds exactly to a second of time, which might not seem like a lot, but they are increasing. Every second.”

“Ticks. I’m not talking about flies. No, this has nothing to do with your flies. I mean the clock is flying- ticking, I mean! It’s ticking!”

“Oh, hurry the fuck up.”
