Brexit deal is ‘damage control – now it’s time for reality’: French MEP Nathalie Loiseau

“Damage control”: that’s how France’s former Europe minister Nathalie Loiseau describes the Brexit deal struck between Boris Johnson’s UK government and the European Commission on Christmas Eve. Now an MEP and chair of the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Security and Defence, Loiseau says it’s time to face the reality of frictions in trade between the UK and the EU. She also calls for a fully-fledged treaty on security and defence: “We are facing the same threats, the same challenges. We have to work together.”
