The European Parliament is signing off on the final legal step of the UK and EU’s post-Brexit trade agreement today. Manfred Weber praised the work of the European Union’s Chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier and fired several digs at Boris Johnson.
Mr Weber said: “Today we do the final legal step on the Brexit saga.
“We support the agreement today and the overwhelming majority gave us a good idea that the content is a good base for the future.
“I want to thank Michel Barnier for his great work, he always delivered and he always served the European interest.
“He delivered and he did a good job for us.
“In London, they now recognise step by step that Johnson cannot deliver on his promises.
“I think we did our job to do our best.
“When I grew up UK diplomacy was a symbol of credibility. Today when we saw the Northern Ireland protocol and how Johnson behaves the message is ‘I don’t care, I don’t care even about my signature’.
“That is the new Great Britain that we have as partners on our side.”
