MP says time has come for our EU partners to be handbagged

Sir David Amess, MP for Southend West said today: “Having been in Parliament when the late Baroness Thatcher was the Prime Minister, I have no doubt at all that she would not have allowed the United Kingdom to be humiliated and as badly treated by our EU partners as is the case at the moment. She would have handbagged them and that is what should happen now. It would also be timely, because subtlety doesn’t work, to remind our European partners how they enjoy the freedoms they do today thanks to the sacrifices of the British people.

It really is about time the United Kingdom, our great country, was treated with the dignity and respect that we deserve.”
