Blog: Fierce no deal Brexit row erupts as ex-Brexit Party MEP shuts down Remainer doom-mongering – Express.co.uk

The former Brexit Party MEP clashed with Remainer Yasmin Alibhai-Brown on Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine programme. Dr Bull also labelled the multi-billion fund the European Union is underwriting in order to deal with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic a mess. 

Ms Alibhai-Brown said: “The economic cost of Brexit already has been £130 billion and is expected to be £70 billion more without a deal.

“For 47 years the total we have paid the EU was £215 billion. Isn’t that shocking?”  

 Jeremy Vine replied: “

In the end I glaze over a bit with the numbers because we do not know and it might be in a hundred years’ time we are in a much better position.”

The Remainer said: “They have said the economic cost, it is the economic cost.”

Dr Bull responded: “What I would throw back at that is look at the mess Europe is in.

“They are about to underwrite a multi-billion fund to fund the chaos after COVID-19.

“Quite frankly we are in this ridiculous position at the moment where we are paying money and have no say of the votes that are being made that affect our lives.

“The sooner we come out of this transition period the better.”

During an interview with Express.co.uk, a Conservative MP questioned the sustainability of the European Union’s model following the reaction of individual countries within the bloc during the coronavirus pandemic.

Lia Nici said: “Obviously, the coronavirus pandemic has been terrible for so many people and it has been a huge challenge.

“I think it is very interesting that when the EU politically and ideologically wants to be seen as a whole nation-state as soon as the pandemic started different individual countries within the EU did their own thing.

“They closed their own borders, they had their own arrangements.

“I think that really shows that the state of the European Union isn’t necessarily sustainable in the ideologically way that perhaps some countries want moving forward.”

She continued: “We all know that the north, south, east and west of Europe are very different culturally.

“They work in different ways, they have different industries.

“I think if the EU is going to survive, major countries like Germany and France need to understand that other countries want to be more involved.”
