DONALD Tusk yesterday urged those battling Brexit in the upcoming election: “Don’t give up.”
The outgoing EU Council chief said things could still be turned around and that quitting Europe would turn Britain into an outsider and a “second-rate player”.
The outgoing EU Council chief said Brexit would turn Britain into an “outsider” and a “second-rate player” on the world stage.
In a speech to the College of Europe, he said: “In this match we are already in extra time. Perhaps it will go to penalties.”
Mr Tusk also said Brexit was driven by a “longing for the Empire” and a desire to “make the UK global again” but it would have “exactly the opposite” effect.
Mr Tusk also said he envied ex-Speaker John Bercow for being able to “honestly say what he thinks”.
