FINNISH MEP Laura Huhtasaari lashed out at the EU's fear-mongering tactics in its negotiation with the UK, as she pointed out that the British side has "already concluded 60 trade agreements" outside of the bloc.
Laura Huhtasaari condemned the EU's plot to stop Britain from taking back control of its borders, laws and fishing waters. The Finnish MEP delivered a furious rant against Brussels, as she urged the EU to "look in the mirror". She pointed out that "UK has already concluded 60 trade agreements," before adding: "I'm actually envious of the Brits."
Speaking in the European Parliament, the MEP said: "Why is the EU so unattractive that Norway and Switzerland don't want to join?
"Why does the UK want to leave? Has the EU looked in the mirror to actually see what is going on?
"The UK has already concluded 60 trade agreements but it seems impossible for them to conclude one with the EU.
"They want to take back control of their borders, their laws and their fishing waters."
