An international week in Brexit that saw Theresa May head to Vancouver before meetings in London and a big speech in Florence. But who said what?
‘Boris is Boris’
‘It’s a bit like a school where discipline has broken down completely [and] the headteacher is barricaded in her own office’
‘I said before [that the referendum] was a dumb idea, other things should’ve been tried first. In some possible branches of the future, leaving will be an error.’
‘What I do not envisage is that we should pay into the EU just for access to the single market, or some such concept. It does not seem to be necessary. We do not get money for access to our markets.’
‘I still have some difficulty seeing how after the general election, which produced a hung parliament in the UK, this government is going to get its form of Brexit through.’
‘There is clearly cause for concern about the rate of progress in Brussels just as there is in the UK. And the ball is very much in the prime minister’s court’
‘Leaving the European Union is a great liberation for the United Kingdom, as worthy for celebration as victory at Waterloo or the Glorious Revolution.’
‘The very fact we have no idea what the final outcome might look like suggests there is a case for a second referendum’
‘It’s perfectly possible to feel English, British and European at the same time. As it is perfectly normal to be a Dubliner, Irish and European at the same time’
‘Expect negative briefing from the commission, sarcasm from Guy Verhofstadt, and a polite but not positive reply from Michel Barnier and Jean-Claude Juncker.’
