Tusk: Brexit advocates deserve a special place in hell

In the suspended game to a regulated EU exit of the UK expects the EU to new ideas, Prime Minister Theresa May. He hope that you will come on Thursday "with realistic proposals," in the Luggage to Brussels, said EU Council President Donald Tusk on Wednesday at a media conference with the Irish head of government, Leo Varadkar.

Tusk took the opportunity at the same time to a verbal broadside against the political supporters of the Brexit . He wondered how "the place in hell" look that was reserved for those who exit the EU, the talked word, without a Plan for a secure implementation.

A spokesman Mays said, Tusk had to ask themselves the question, whether he believe that this the tongue will be helpful. For Parliament questions British Minister, Andrea Leadsom, asked in turn for an apology. The comment of the EU President was "disgraceful" and "mischievous," she said to the BBC Radio. Leadsom, herself a glowing Brexit-follower.

the former head of The nationalist Ukip party, Nigel Farage, held Tusk: "After Brexit, we will direct you to be free of unelected, arrogant tyrants like you and our country." This is not hell, but rather heaven.

Tusk insists on Backstop

According to his own representation of the President of the European Council abandoned the hope that the Brexit could still be stopped. Instead, he wanted to focus on a "fiasco" for the case of avert, that the UK will leave at the end of March the EU without a contract.

Tusk stressed at the same time, for the EU, the Irish border remained in question and the peace process in Ireland is a top priority. "There is no room here for speculation," said the Pole. In the UK, he appealed: "Give us a credible guarantee of peace in Northern Ireland, and the UK will leave the EU as a trusted friend."

Ireland's head of government, Varadkar said in a joint statement with Juncker in a similar way. The Irish head of government has announced a private Meeting with May, a Friday evening in Dublin.

British want to end date

May has to get by the majority of members in the British house of Commons commissioned to negotiate the unpopular exit of the contract. Many parliamentarians fear that by the Backstop, possibly the whole of the United Kingdom in a customs Union with the EU would be held.

With the Backstop should be prevented in case of emergency, a hard border between Ireland and the British Northern Ireland, which would result in a chaotic British EU exit.

deputies fear, however, as a secession of Northern Ireland and want to set a binding end date for the Backstop, which the EU refuses to strictly. Instead, it is searched for in London to find alternative solutions to the border issue.

No customs-waiver

The British trade Minister, Liam Fox, meanwhile, has a plan, a refusal to play given the economic consequences of a hard Brexit by the unilateral waiver of import duties to mitigate.

media reports raised, he told parliamentarians that he would not propose. "And I have heard from anyone in the government, this would recommend." There are several Alternatives for dealing with customs duties, for the case of an unregulated EU-exit. The government will take a decision.

Even if London is not considering the waiver of import duties apparently would be suitable for such a step, according to calculations by the Ifo Institute, the negative economic consequences of a hard Brexit cushion. Without import duties, the consumption in the UK would go back only 0.5 percent. In the case of a hard Brexit with import trade organisation (WTO) customs duties in accordance with the rules of the world, the consumption would shrink according to the Ifo-Institut of 2.8 percent.

the UK is planning, at the end of March from the community of States to withdraw. On the concrete conditions, it is still a fight. It is unclear therefore, what are the conditions for the future commercial. (fal/sda)
