The foreign secretary said EU leaders should not ‘insult the British people on social media’
Jeremy Hunt has told leaders of the European Union to not “mistake British politeness for weakness” after the tense Salzburg summit that threatens to sink Theresa May’s Chequers proposal.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, the foreign secretary followed May’s combative address on Friday, saying: “What Theresa May is saying is: don’t mistake British politeness for weakness. If you put us in a difficult corner, we will stand our ground. That’s the kind of country we are.”
