Robert Tombs called the EU a “dysfunctional and highly unpopular organisation”

“I think this is not going to happen but certainly if we had a more stable and political situation and a stronger government, things would be much easier.”Mr Tombs insisted the UK Government may seem disorganised but it is the same throughout the globe, particularly in America.He said: “Our crisis, such as they are an infinitely less serious than those of the United States, look around Europe.

“Look at . Look at Germany. Look at the whole of eastern Europe. Look at France, a very fragile political situation.

“There’s a crisis facing the whole of the democratic world and we are sharing to some extent in that.“, well a lot of people don’t like Brexit, but it doesn’t seem to me to be a terribly difficult thing to understand.”Mr Tombs said that Britain voted to leave a “dysfunctional and highly unpopular organisation”. He suggested that seeing it as a “protectionist reaction” would be a “complete misunderstanding.”

The sixth round of Brexit negotiations is set to begin on Thursday in Brussels following fears from the EU chief negotiations that talks are at a “disturbing” deadlock.
