IT IS strange to remember that some within the Government described the European Council president Donald Tusk as Britain’s friend in the aftermath of the historic 2016 referendum.
After three hard years of Brexit that suggestion has been proven to be completely wrong.
In truth the UK has no friends among the hierarchy of the EU and never did because it has always stood in the way of a United States of Europe.
Mr Tusk is a prominent part of that machine and has been at the forefront of trying to punish and humiliate Britain.
How can we forget the way the self–confessed former football hooligan set up our Prime Minister in a rather crude Instagram joke with slices of cake.
