Farron: May taken to Tusk

The Lib Dem Press Office has had its Weetabix this morning. Not only did it get its punchy analysis of the EU’s statement about the Brexit negotiations out quickly, but it came up with a pretty eye-catching headline.

Here’s what Tim Farron had to say about the EU statement – and it does not reflect well on Theresa May and her Brexiteers:

These guidelines show the strength of the EU in these negotiations, and the carelessness of the UK government in isolating themselves from our European allies.

The terms are clear: no sector by sector deals, no bilateral negotiations and no new trade deal until the withdrawal terms are agreed. This leaves no doubt that Davis’ comments about special arrangements for the car industry or financial sector are worthless.

It is still possible for the British people to stop a Hard Brexit and keep us in the Single Market. And if they want, it is still possible for the British people to choose to remain in the European Union. The Liberal Democrats are the only party opposing this hard, destructive Brexit.

Tory cabinet ministers talk about securing a deal with Europe that secures the UK exactly the same benefits as before. Theresa May has been taken to Tusk today.

    There is no doubt that hard reality is meeting Tory Power and Glory fiction this morning. The EU’s approach is to be much admired… you want ot be a foreign country, OK this is what it means…

    I hope Nissan now knows what May’s empty promises mean. France would love to get its Renault arm back on-shore.

  • Watching the entitled Tories trying to negotiate, is like watching a one legged man in an arse kicking contest; lots of effort, much consternation when they fail miserably and no results. If this was a boxing match the referee would have stopped it as a mismatch already.
