Britain is not bluffing and will not be bullied over Brexit plans, UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall tells EU
UKIP leader Paul Nuttall MEP told the European Parliament today that Britain is not a country that will be bullied easily by EU negotiators, following Prime Minister Theresa May's announcement of her Brexit objectives.
He also criticised the lack of response from Jeremy Corbyn's Labour and its demise as the party of working people.
Speaking in Strasbourg, Mr Nuttall said: “No-one in Britain bar UKIP, my party, is holding the government to account on these issues, maybe because the British Labour Party is a shambles that has let down working class people for far too long.”
“So I say to the EU negotiators, now is not the time for empty threats.
“Britain is not bluffing, Britain will not be bullied. Britain is not some sort of small nation on the peripheries of Europe. We are the United Kingdom. The fifth largest economy on the planet. We have links all over the globe: to the Anglosphere, the Commonwealth, the emerging markets of the Far East.
“It is clear that Britain is going global as a result of that momentous vote on June 23rd. I believe that we have a great future ahead of us.”
