During today’s European parliament debate, Estonian MEP Jaak Madison stated the EU has been humiliated by the UK. Speaking after arch-federalist Guy Verhosfstadt, Mr Madison said: “It’s always funny to hear the speeches of Mr Verhofstadt because he’s very active and funny, and they’re full of power.
“And he’s been saying for several years, since 2016, the UK Government is going to damaged because of Brexit, they’re going to lose everything.
“We’re going to put a lot of pressure on the UK but well…since 2016 they’ve been doing pretty fine, really.”
“In the meantime, the UK and Johnson are just playing with the EU.
“And the EU is trying to act like a tough guy but, at the same time, it couldn’t manage any normal deal.
“That’s why I wouldn’t take Mr Verhofstadt very seriously, and it’s pretty clear and understandable that if there is no deal before the end of the year the EU is losing much more than then the UK is doing.
“And, in some way, I’m really happy about that so congratulations to Mr Johnson.”
