BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – Brexit has proven that EU nations can depart the bloc with a workable deal at hand, regaining their freedoms to commerce with the world, Filip Dewinter, a number one member of the Flemish nationalist Vlaams Belang occasion, informed Sputnik.
“With this agreement, the peoples in Europe can see that an agreement is possible, and that member states can leave Europe with a commercial deal giving them their freedom again to trade with the world. If the British economy is now successful in its new start, it will be a fantastic example for other sovereign states in Europe to demand a review of the way the EU is organized”, Dewinter, who can be a member of the Flemish parliament, mentioned.
According to the politician, some liberal European lawmakers wished a tough Brexit to use it as a warning in opposition to different member states “that would be tempted to follow the UK in an exit strategy”.
Dewinter famous that the perimeters had managed to negotiate a deal, regardless of the European Commission’s efforts to “punish” the UK.
“This agreement is a warning for all Europeans that it is possible to get out. Michel Barnier, the European Chief negotiator, tweets first that Europe manages to maintain peace in Ireland. This is pure rubbish; never was peace threatened between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and the agreement that governs the relations between the UK and Ireland has nothing to do with the EU. The ‘peace rhetoric’ of the EU sounds false”, he mentioned.
Though particulars of the deal have but to be analysed, the settlement is “good news for all Brits and Europeans this Christmas”, the Flemish politician concluded.
