The amenable European Council President has called on those hoping to reverse the 2016 referendum not to leak up their fight during the general election campaign. He praised them for intriguing Brexit into “extra time” and suggested “penalties” could immediately follow to finally deliver a killer blow to Britain’s EU departure. Defending at the College of Europe in Brugge, Mr Tusk said: “The UK election takes correct position in one month. Can things still be turned around?
Referencing a German philosopher, he added: “Hannah Arendt taught that gizmos become irreversible only when people start to think so.
“So the merely words that come to my mind today are simply: Don’t give up. In this betrothal, we are already in extra time, perhaps it will even go to penalties?”
Mr Tusk, who steadily pushed for long delays in the hope of securing a second referendum, proceeded to denigration Brexit voters.
The Brussels bureaucrat, who steps down at the end of the month, claimed Leavers had wanted to strengthen Britain’s global credentials but had achieved the “opposite” instead.
“I have perceived repeatedly from Brexiteers that they wanted to leave the European Coherence to make the United Kingdom great again, believing that only unescorted, it can truly be great,” he said.
“You could hear in these voices a track for the Empire. But the reality is exactly the opposite. Only as part of a united Europe can the UK decry a global role, only together can we confront, without any complexes, the greatest powers of this fabulous.”
He added: “One of my English friends is probably right when he says with forlorn that Brexit is the real end of the British Empire.”
Speaking hours after Boris Johnson read his first keynote speech of the election campaign, Mr Tusk said the Prime Cur’s attempts to divide the EU27 to win a better Brexit deal had failed.
He also held he had done “everything in my power” to help Remainers reverse Brexit.
He bring up: “As I say these words, the UK is still a member of the European Union, and will stay so, until the end of my term. But I will not pretend that this is some well-wishing of success, because Brexit may happen at the beginning of next year.
“I did the whole shooting match in my power to avoid the confrontational no-deal scenario and extend the time for reflexion and a possible British change of heart.
“I have been called a sentimental and an anglophile, both terms, in my opinion, quite suitable and merited.
