Hans-Olaf Henkel hits out at EU’s ‘illogical, arrogant’ behaviour.
A Member of the European Parliament from Germany, Hans-Olaf Henkel, has hit out at the EU’s hardline negotiation stance on Brexit, telling LBC that “the whole strategy by Barnier is unfair to Britain” and that their approach is geared towards stopping other countries from leaving too.
Exposing how Michel Barnier and the EU’s negotiation stance is aimed at “punishing” the UK for daring to leave, he said: “I said from the outset I am against Brexit but I do support the vote of the British people. I think they should give a fair deal to Britain.
“The very fact that the whole game plan of what should be agreed upon first, has not been developed jointly by Britain and the EU, it has been forced down the throat of Britain by the EU.
“I am convinced that these Europhiles, most of the people in Brussels, they are absolutely scared stiff that some other country might get the idea and try to Leave the European Union.
“They want to punish the British, I am surprised by the enormous arrogance. The British government should point out the illogical sequence of items to be discussed.
