Vice President of the European Parliament Heidi Hautala has made her mind up about Boris Johnson’s Brexit proposal: it’s no good. The Finnish MEP said ‘it’s not a very serious proposal’. But has she actually read the Prime Minister’s letter to Jean-Claude Juncker? Err, no. ‘But I am more or less aware of the proposal,’ she said.
Unsurprisingly Hautala got short shrift from Iain Dale, who was interviewing her on LBC. ‘Can I suggest you actually read the letter? It does contain detailed proposals, it protects the integrity of the single market,’ he told her.
