The UK’s withdrawal from the EU (debate)
MPphoto
 

  Georgios Kyrtsos (PPE). – Madam President, our British friends are in a state of political confusion as far as Brexit is concerned. We should respond with a creative approach. First, we should offer the British more time to make up their minds. Second, if they decide against a hard Brexit and are reconciled with the idea of participating in the Customs Union, or even in the single market, we should accommodate them. After all, we too made serious mistakes, which led the British people to vote in favour of Brexit.

The European Union badly needs the United Kingdom and it seems to me that it becomes obvious every day that the United Kingdom also needs the European Union.
