In­ter­ests of Union first

Yorkshire Post - Business - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
