Michelle Dewberry attacked Michael Barnier for saying that the UK is not taking Brexit talks ‘seriously’
Mrs Dewberry said: “I think Michel Barnier is being quite unnecessarily inflammatory with some of his comments.
“He’s basically suggesting that people are not taking this seriously, Sir David Davis is not taking it seriously. That’s such a strange thing to suggest.”
She said: “Having voted for Brexit and largely accepted that it’s going to happen, why on earth would anyone not be taking that seriously? This is one of the most serious things we got going on at the moment.
“I fundamentally disagree with the EU’s approach to not discuss the future relationship with us properly in terms of trade, etc. until we’ve talked about and agreed how much money we will pay them.
“I think that is wholly wrong.”
She said businesses “on both sides” needed clarity and certainty in order to plan for the future.
The businesswoman said: “You’ve got business leaders on both sides of the fence saying: We need certainty. We need to know what the future is going to look like so we can work out what we’re going to do.
“How can we agree the border in Ireland without knowing what trade arrangements are going to be there? It’s just beyond me.”
She is spot on in my opinion!
Do you agree?
