Tusk says Brexit deal is lose-lose

The deal struck between Britain and the EU over Brexit yesterday is  a”lose-lose” situation and only a piece of “damage control”, according to Donald Tusk.

Speaking in Brussels on this morning after the release late on Wednesday of the Brexit agreement Donald Tusk told reporters: “I took good note of Prime Minister May’s statement yesterday.

“Of course I don’t share the prime minister’s enthusiasm about Brexit as such. Since the very beginning we have had no doubt that Brexit is a lose-lose situation and that our negotiations are only about damage control.”
