Don’t BLAME the UK! Brussels has NO EXCUSE not to deliver on promises, says ex-Italian PM

BRUSSELS eurocrats will no longer be able to blame their failings on British stubbornness, a former Italian prime minister said.

Enrico Letta, who held office from 2013 to 2014, insisted European Union leaders can no longer use the UK has an “alibi” for inaction by opposing major initiatives.

With Theresa May about to open formal EU departure talks, the Italian demanded Brussels leaders make a success of its members economy through “goodwill”.

Speaking to CNBC, Mr Letta discussed the need for “unity” across the bloc, urging other countries to not follow Britain out of the failing European project.

“I think we have to push for more unity, for less fragmentation,” he said.
