Lord Lawson perfectly summed up who Verhofstadt is to the European Union and we all agree with him.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Lord Lawson said: “Verhofstadt is just EU propaganda.
“You don’t need to take him seriously.”
He said: “I mean the people who matter are the leaders of France and Germany.
“Although, there’s a problem with Germany now because they don’t know who their leader is following the inconclusive election result the other day. Macron in France is in a strong position but Angela Merkel in Germany is certainly not.”
I 100% agree with his comments.
The EU has a verity of propaganda puppets and this clown is one of them!
He speaks rubbish. It’s painful to listen to.
Guy Verhofstadt is about to offer every UK citizen the option to remain an EU citizen
It has emerged that the European Union’s Chief Negotiator Guy Verhofstadt is about to offer every UK citizen the option to remain a citizen of the EU.
Speaking to the European Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional Affairs on this issue, he said:
“We come to the vote of this important amendment 882, tabled by colleague Charles Goerens. It is an important amendment that has captured the imagination and hopes of many of the 48 per cent of Brits that have voted to remain in the EU.
“You will all have received many emails about this – and there has been many articles about this.
“It has therefore become a very important issue that cannot await treaty change – as envisaged by Charles when he first tabled it.
“I am therefore proposing to remove it from my report – which after all is concerned with Treaty change – and to include it in the negotiations we will have with the UK Government.
“I as Brexit negotiator for the Parliament will ensure that it is included in the parliament’s negotiating mandate.”
Responding in a statement, Mr Goerens said: “Today I decided together with Guy Verhofstadt to withdraw my amendment on associate EU citizenship.
“We realised that this has become a very important issue that cannot await treaty change – as was my intention when I first tabled my amendment – since this might take years.
“Yesterday evening, the House of Commons decided by a majority of almost 400 to support Theresa Mays plan to trigger Article 50 by the end of March 2017.
“Hence the prospect that this Article 50 will be invoked has become very real indeed.
“The European Parliament will define its position on the Brexit agreement through a resolution during spring 2017.
“This seems to be the best opportunity to give Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt the possibility to enforce the associate EU citizenship.
“I recognise this might come as a surprise to many of you, but please understand that the abovementioned procedure makes it much more likely for the associate EU citizenship to succeed than through an amendment.”
So it is now looking more and more likely that the die-hard Remainers will have a way out, and in the process they were proudly take their place in a ‘divided society’ – the very concept that they have been screaming blue bloody murder about ever since the referendum result in June 2016.
You couldn’t make it up!
