The Brexit referendum has been now questioned, but differently. It is being said the 17.4 million voters in the United Kingdom didn’t know what leaving European Union (EU) could exactly mean to them.
The President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said Friday while speaking at the European Council summit in Brussels that the British voters were not explained by anyone what leaving the bloc meant.
Juncker was answering to the questions thrown by the press people and added, “When I said nobody has explained to me what no deal meant. What I was saying was non-member of the UK delegation has explained that to me.”
He further continued that the commission is doing every possible thing to come up with a fair and balanced Brexit with UK.
Comments of Juncker came after green signal was given by Donald Tusk for the preparation of second phase talks of Brexit.
It is learned British Prime Minister Theresa May demanded urgency in moving Brexit talks to her so that the country could begin talking about trade with the bloc.
The Prime Minister urged her European counterparts to give the country a deal so that she can defend to the British people.
She called for a joint effort and endeavour in delivering Brexit.
May added, “I particularly want to see an urgency in reaching an agreement on citizens rights.”
The PM mentioned further she is looking at the concrete progress in the exit negotiations.
Earlier a a government policy paper revealed post-Brexit the United Kingdom will not come under the direct jurisdiction of Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice (ECJ).
