Interests of Union first
EUROPEAN POLITICIANS are not looking to punish Britain for leaving the EU, says Sally Jones, but they will put the interests of the Union first.
She said: “When I speak to politicians in Europe I never hear them say they want to punish the UK. What they do say is we are going to negotiate in our best interest. Our best interests will not always align with yours.”
Prime Minister Theresa May agreed to honour the contributions Britain had agreed to make to the EU until 2020. A point that was well received by the EU. But there are other liabilities that will still need to be thrashed out as part of the divorce proceedings.
