Prime Minister's statement on the European Council

23rd October 2017

Following the Prime Minister's statement on the European Council, Andrew Bridgen condemns the action of the Leader of the Opposition, who was apparently working with the EU to undermine the UK’s negotiating position.

I was disappointed with the European Council, as on this occasion it did not find the time to discuss the ongoing appalling situation in Venezuela. Does my right hon. Friend believe that this was to spare the blushes of the Leader of the Opposition, who, apparently, was in town working with the EU to undermine the UK’s negotiating position?

That may well indeed have been the case. I know the Leader of the Opposition was in town at the time, and of course what he was doing was basically saying to the European Union that he would be willing to take any deal, at any price. That is not the position of this Government.
