UK ‘gets revenge on Brussels for playing stupid games’ as EU’s punishment plan backfires
Tory peer Lord Moylan explained the European Union’s protectionism will backfire badly on the bloc. He predicted Britain will “leave the EU behind” as Britain has “its revenge on Brussels”. Speaking on talkRADIO, host Kevin O’Sullivan questioned the Conservative peer on how Britain could “retaliate” against the EU’s red tape and blockades.
Mr O’Sullivan raised the idea of forcing extra bureaucracy onto German car-makers and French wine-makers, such as making them translate their labels into different languages.
He said: “If they are going to play games with us, why don’t we play games with them? I’m furious with what the EU is up to.”
However, the Conservative peer said any retaliation like that would backfire on the UK.
He explained: “I don’t think it’s the right thing to do.
“We have let the EU run our trade policy for the last 40-odd years to such an extent that we have forgotten some of the principles of the trade policy.”
