EUROPRAT Donald Tusk has been branded a ‘devilish euro maniac’ after the EU President said that Brexiteers deserved a ‘special place in hell.’
The DUP’s Sammy Wilson sent a robust response to Tusk suggestion there will be a ‘special place in hell’ for Brexiteers like him.
The Nothern Irish MP accused Tusk of showing “contempt” for the 17.4m Brexit voters.
“This devilish euro maniac is doing his best to keep the United Kingdom bound by the chains of EU bureaucracy and control,” he said.
“It is Tusk and his arrogant EU negotiators who have fanned the flames of fear in an attempt to try and overturn the result of the referendum.
“All he will succeed in doing is stiffening the resistance of those who have exercised their choice to be clear of Tusk and his trident wielding cabal.”
Arlene Foster also slammed Mr Tusk and said he was being “deliberately provocative” and “disrespectful”.
“Clearly the pressure is beginning to mount in Brussels,” she said.
“I think it was deliberately provocative I have to say, very disrespectful to those of us who voted to leave the European Union. He should reflect on what he had to say.
“As I said to the Prime Minister this morning, this is a time for cool heads, it is a time to have focus and it is a time to try and find solutions, not to be disrespectful to those of us who voted in a democratic way to leave the European Union. I hope when the Prime Minister does go out to Brussels that she will be met with respect when she goes there.
