Don't misquote me please. I don't think it's wrong for them to try to get the best deal they can. What I think is "despicable" is the speeches in which they talk about the need to inflict pain on the other side, "pour encourager les autres". Some openly say that it's important for the UK to be seen to suffer in order to prevent others from 'getting ideas' about leaving the EU. That is reprehensible, and a long way from the understandable "we want the EU to emerge with a good deal".
when there are no carrots available, you have to use a stick instead.
