So far no one, including Mr. Farage, has been able to give any proof of the value of Brexit.”
European Commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager, finds also that we have lost a lot of valuable time which could be en spend at better things. After years of debates and negotiations, for her it is getting time to stop talking about Brexit, to continue advancing on issues of concern to Europeans.
“We have things to do, and we can not allow the Brexit to overshadow the important things, because they continue to occupy our thoughts, our means of communication …
Precious time that the heads of State and Government could use to talk to each other about what to do in the future, how to be more in agreement, what are the important things that we have to deal with …
Because now we do not have an agreement on how to protect refugees, on how to confront illegal immigration, we are still debating what to do With our external borders, we have many discussions about trade and other very important ones that will influence our daily life and, even so, we lose hours and hours talking about Brexit, so I hope this new extension and the fact that they can leave when want them to be ready, it’s already a British question. “
