Brexit news: Donald Tusk told listen to Queen after Brexiteer rant on BBC Question Time | UK | News 1084235 1


The advice was given to the European Council president by Tory peer Baron Forsyth, the former Secretary of State for Scotland.

He was speaking during a debate on BBC Question Time.

Mr Tusk caused widespread anger with his provocative comments on Wednesday.

Addressing the key EU leader Baron Forsyth commented: “I think Donald would have been well advised to have attended a meeting of the Women’s Institute at Sandringham where he would have got very good advice from the monarch on how to behave.

“I don’t think it helps, with a complex issue like this, if people start using language of that kind.

“I think one of the problems with the Brexit debate is that it has become so divisive.”

The Queen delivered what was widely interpreted as a call for tolerance during Brexit discussions when she addressed the Sandringham Women’s Institute last month.

She commented: “Of course every generation faces fresh challenges and opportunities.

“As we look for new answers in the modern age, I for one prefer the tried and tested recipes, like speaking well of each other and respecting different points of view; coming together to seek out the common ground; and never losing sight of the bigger picture.”

Baron Forsyth was responding to comments Mr Tusk made in Brussels on Wednesday, after talks with the Irish Prime Minister.

He claimed there is a “special place in hell” for “those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it out safely”.

The European Council President went on to repeat the remark on his official Twitter account.

Theresa May is currently attempting to win concessions from Brussels on the controversial customs union ‘backstop’.

She either wants the UK to be able to withdraw unilaterally, or for it to be time-limited, but Brussels is refusing to budge.

The Prime Minister also condemned Mr Tusk’s remarks stating: “I’ve raised with President Tusk the language that he used yesterday, which was not helpful and caused widespread dismay in the United Kingdom.

“The point I made to him is that we should be working to ensure that we can deliver a close relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union in the future, and that’s what he should be focusing on.”
