Brexit: 'Donald Tusk and the EU are still behaving as if we don't have to leave'

Bernard Jenkin seemed to dislike the tone of Donald Tusk's press conference

Donald Tusk and the EU are "still behaving as if we don't have a right to leave," according to prominent Leave campaigner Bernard Jenkin.

Tusk gave a speech on Brexit yesterday, warning Britain that a "pick n mix" trade deal is out of the question.

Jenkin told Julia Hartley-Brewer that "the one bit of progress here was recognition that we're looking for a free trade deal. It's taken nearly a year to get to this point.

"But the tone of the document and indeed of Mr Tusk's press conference yesterday, that 'we can tell the British what to do.' 

"That ignores the fact that they want a very great deal of money from us and actually a lot of jobs depend on trade with the United Kingdom on the continent."
