William Hague has said that the general election result means Britain will not be able to negotiate a good Brexit deal.
‘The EU knows that the result of the British election weakened the British government’s negotiating position. It absolutely did’.
‘So Britain will get a worse deal as a result of the election. I think there is no question about that. And of course we can’t blame the voters for how they vote. The voters have voted to leave the the EU, and then not to have a government in a strong position to negotiate the exit. What could be the result of that?’
‘It will be a Brexit deal that is softer than it might have been. We’ll end up having to pay more. We’ll pay a bigger price for leaving, I think, because of the uncertainties of the election result’.
‘I don’t think calling the election was a mistake. I think the result was a mistake, collectively, by the people of this country’.
