David Davis warns EU have made a HUGE MISTAKE – 'Tusk can join us in HELL'


The prominent Brexiteer told Mr Tusk there will be more -supporting Britons as a result of the latest round of “bullying” from the . Mr Davis said: “The very great mistake Mr Tusk made today was that he didn’t think about the impact of voters on that sort of comment because they’ll be resentful of that. You’ll have Remainers turning into Leavers on the back of Mr Tusk’s comment.”

Speaking on ITV’s Peston show, Mr Davis joked the European Council President may join the Brexiteers in hell.

The former Brexit Secretary said: “When people throw insults around, it says more about them than the people they are insulting.

“What this is telling you is that they are getting nervous, they are getting twitchy.”

Mr Davis said there are a “number of reasons” as to why Britain does not have a Brexit deal.

He added: “You will remember on your programme during the general election I said we should be dealing with money, which we did over the summer and sequencing. In other words, getting everything dealt with at the same time. We didn’t do that. Downing Street gave that game away right at the beginning.”

The former Brexit Secretary said the reason Downing Street gave in to the EU’s negotiating timetable was “probably” down to civil servant and “a loss of nerve”.

Mr Davis said Britain made a series of errors throughout the negotiating period with Brussels, including the trade deal not being dealt with at the same time, the “mistake” over the language on Northern Ireland, and a customs area which turned into the backstop.

During a joint press conference alongside Irish Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, he said: “I’ve been wondering what that special place in hell looks like for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of plan how to carry it out safely.”

Throughout the fiery speech, Mr Tusk urged Prime Minister to head back to Brussels on Thursday with a “realistic suggestion” to resolve the Brexit deadlock.

The Eurocrat also warned Britain that the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement was “not open for renegotiation”.

He said: “I hope that tomorrow we will hear from Prime Minister May a realistic suggestion on how to end the impasse in which the process of the orderly withdrawal of the UK from the EU has found itself following the latest votes in the House of Commons.”

The Polish politician also said the EU was preparing for the “possible fiasco” that might happen if Britain leaves the EU without a deal.

Mr Varadkar, who was in discussions with Brussels on Wednesday in regard to finding a solution to the Irish border issue, insisted the backstop must remain in place and cannot be amended despite the Prime Minister’s calls for legal assurances.

Mrs May will seek to secure enough changes to the backstop which can persuade MPs to support the deal in a series of votes expected on February 14.

Prominent Brexiteer responded to Mr Tusk’s comment and wrote on Twitter: “After Brexit, we will be free of unelected, arrogant bullies like you and run our own country. Sounds more like heaven to me.”

President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker was asked directly about the remarks from Mr Tusk on Wednesday.

Mr Juncker said: “I’m less Catholic than my good friend Donald. He solely believes in heaven. And by opposite in hell. I believe in heaven. And I have never seen hell apart from the time I was doing my job here, it’s hell.”
