New EU delegation tells Brussels to stop it’s “Childish” and “Punitive” stance on Brexit.

A fresh delegation of representatives has been put together from the EU and the UK to oversee economic ties between the United Kingdom and the European Union. EU members are already pushing to abandon Brussels “childish” and “punitive” stance on Brexit.

The new EU delegation for post-Brexit economic ties with the United Kingdom will consist of 35 MEPs and 35 British MPs who will work together to guarantee a smooth trading future in the wake of the Brexit referendum.

One of its members, Lega MEP Marco Campomenosi, has bluntly stated his intention to pressure Brussels to abandon its “childish” anti-British agenda and to work toward improved ties with the United Kingdom.

The Italian politician stated the following in a note to reporters: “I am satisfied to be a member of the EU Delegation for relations with the United Kingdom because I believe it is time to put aside the somewhat childish reactions of some in the EU institutions, and work with London starting from the common sharing of values and social, economic, environmental and vision standards for the future of the world that will only see us united.”

“In Brussels, there are those who took a punitive approach to the UK during the Brexit negotiations.”

“On the contrary, we have always claimed a common-sense perspective.”

“Italy is a net exporter to the United Kingdom, and the EU must recognise the need to enhance trade relations.”

“Furthermore, the common membership of NATO and the international counter-terrorism action must keep us unique and cohesive in the years to come, which will be years of great challenges and turbulence.”

The remarks come at a time when the United Kingdom and the European Union are still at odds over the Northern Ireland protocol of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

On Monday, the European Commission signalled that it would not budge on the United Kingdom’s insistence that the protocol’s supervision by European courts is discussed.

The EU said that a “very intensive period of discussions” has started but indicated that the function of the European Court of Justice might not be included in the discussions (ECJ).

A significant demand from the government in its efforts to reduce economic barriers between Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom has emerged: removing the European Court of Justice from the Brexit deal.

However, the EU’s plans to reduce red tape in the Irish Sea commerce fell short of the demands of Brexit Minister Lord Frost, who is now attending talks in Brussels on the issue.

Arianna Podesta, a spokesperson for the European Commission, maintained that the package presented by the EU last week is comprehensive and that discussions will not go any farther than that.

Upon being asked if the European Court of Justice (ECJ) will be included in the discussions this week, Ms Podesta said, “We are following up on the package that we have proposed on October 13 – it is a far-reaching package.”

Lord Frost is scheduled to meet with Maros Sefcovic, the vice-president of the European Commission who has been serving as the EU’s chief negotiator in the post-Brexit negotiations.

According to a statement from the commission, Mr Sefcovic expressed delight that “both sides have agreed to engage intensively and constructively at both expert and political level.”

“The EU seeks to focus on the areas that matter most to Northern Irish people and businesses, and where we can find common ground,” the statement said.

“Swift joint solutions would bring the stability, certainty and predictability that Northern Ireland deserves, ultimately protecting the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement in all its dimensions.”
