On the opposite hand, the avidly pro-EU Tusk, who now heads the European People’s Party (EPP) grouping within the European Parliament, final yr described Brexit as “one of the most spectacular mistakes” in EU historical past.
This is outwardly Cummings and his Brexit buddies’ rule: that they go away when they should keep.
