Brussels could force bad Brexit deal on UK to push EU army agenda, Danish MEP warns

TOPPLING Brexit talks to push the agenda for an EU army would be a “bad signal” to send to Europe’s allies, a Danish MEP has warned Brussels.

Anders Vistisen, of the Danish People's Party, said trying to punish the UK for exiting the bloc could jeopardise the “special relationship” between Britain and the rest of Europe. 

Especially on security issues, the MEP urged Brussels to see sense and reconsider using Brexit as an excuse to push for a common EU army. 

Speaking exclusively to, Mr Vistisen said: “Especially on the security front I think we are jeopardising a very special relationship with the Britain. 

“Britain is the biggest security guarantor in Europe and Britain and America have been the transatlantic link in Nato

“All these ideas of a common European army is to a certain extent a very bad reaction to Brexit.”

The Danish MEP said there was a growing concern leaders in Brussels could scupper negotiations with Theresa May to further its own agenda.
