The President of the European Council Donald Tusk has admitted that he is FURIOUS about Brexit during a visit to Dublin.
Speaking during a university presentation in Dublin, Tusk also said that it was one of the most disappointing events in the 21st Century.
We have two main issues with this. First of all, many British people only voted for Brexit in the first place because they were ‘furious’ with the European Union.
Furious about years of mindless bureaucracy for the sake of bureaucracy, furious about years of unaudited accounts, furious about years of taxpayers’ cash being used to prop up the Brussels gravy train.
More importantly, Brexit is very much not ‘sad’ for millions in the United Kingdom. It is a demonstration of democracy and a prime example of ‘the little people’ rising up against the establishment.
In other words, Tusk really doesn’t truly understand Brexit from a British perspective.
“I don’t like Brexit.
“Actually, I believe Brexit is one of the saddest moments in twenty first-century European history.
“In fact, sometimes I am even furious about it.”
“Today it is not enough to call for unity and to protest against multiple speeds.
“It is much more important that we all respect our common rules such as human rights and civil liberties, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly, checks and balances, and the rule of law.
“This is the true foundation of our unity.”
But he warned a return to “gloom” and “disunion” was not impossible.
Mr Tusk concluded: “We have as many reasons for concern, as a generation that could still unfortunately make it to the gloomy and for sure spectacular show of another European disunion.
“You may think I am over-sensitive to this threat.
“But our two countries don’t need reminding about how much effort, suffering and time is needed to build peace and unity without coercion, in the conditions of freedom.
“And how little time and effort is needed to undermine and demolish this structure.
“Only a united Europe can be a sovereign Europe in relation to the rest of the world.”
