Tusk dreams of Brexit U-turnEuropost
EU Council President Donald Tusk on Tuesday called on for the “dream” that Britain might give up on leaving the EU not to be dismissed and urged politicians not to let exhaustion with Brexit talks make for a hasty exit. He was responding to a statement by one national leader who had warned “dreamers” not to think “Brexit could be reversed”, news wires reported.
“At this rather difficult moment in our history, we need dreamers and dreams. We cannot give in to fatalism. At least I will not stop dreaming about a better and united Europe,” Tusk said. It was not immediately clear which leader he was referring to. The summit compromised by giving Britain another six months.
“I know that, on both sides of the Channel, everyone, including myself, is exhausted with Brexit, which is completely understandable. However, this is not an excuse to say: “let’s get it over with”, just because we’re tired,” EU president insisted.
