breaking world news brexit

(Worthy News) - The European Union’s position on the terms of Britain’s exit from the bloc has not changed despite British Prime Minister Theresa May announcing her June 7 resignation earlier on Friday, Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva said.

“(European Commission) President (Jean-Claude) Juncker followed Prime Minister May’s announcement this morning without personal joy,” she told a news briefing.

“The President very much liked and appreciated working with Prime Minister May. He will equally respect and establish working relations with any new prime minister, whomever it may be. Our position on the withdrawal agreement — there is no change to that,” Andreeva said. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]

  1. Of course they are sad about Teresa May's departure as they can't manipulate this nation now as they have with others. Out means out. The best deal is no deal. Pray for the right person, God's appointment, for the leadership and that in his mercy, God will start to raise up a righteous government and in the other parties.

  2. I find the inflexibility of the EU very disrespectful.How soon Europe forgets who liberated them from the iron fist of Adolf Hitler and the blood shed by the British and Allies . Not only that but the rebuilding of Europe ,much help and money from many Allied Countries including England.Very very ungrateful. All that the British want is to remain a sovereign country and to have some decent trade with the EU.not to much to ask for i think.

  3. Yes, Ruth. Exactly.

    P.S. - The E.U. has NO SAY as to how GB can exit. Terms at the beginning were voluntary entrance and voluntary exit. GB doesn't need their permission for anything. Maybe we should just SCRAP the entire idea of an E.U. entirely and not have to worry about getting fined for not obeying their traffic laws.
