‘Stop yelling at Brussels’ Emily Thornberry vows to reset British FRIENDSHIP with Juncker

8 Oct

She insisted the key to Brexit talks was to view their counterparts in Brussels as friends.

The shadow cabinet minister said: “We have always had conversations with the EU ever since the Brexit vote. They understand what our position is. 

“Their biggest question is what the government policy is and we just don’t know.

“If the Tories can agree an interim period after Brexit, a Labour leadership can come in and sort it out. We can reset relationships.” 

Pressed on what a government under Jeremy Corbyn would do differently in Brexit, Mrs Thornberry said: “We would say this is what we need to deliver for the British people – changes on migration and so on. 

“Let’s not yell at each other, let’s put an end to the posturing. Let’s talk as friends.”

Reaction on social media largely derided the shadow foreign secretary: “Thornberry has her head in the clouds if she thinks talking as friends with the EU is going to change anything.”
