Conservative MP Mark Francois has stunningly attacked a German business leader after he stated that Brexiteers were “mad” to suggest his company would not leave the European Union after the UK leaves on 29th March this year. The MP then took his frustrations into his own hands and proceeded to rip up the letter live on air, stunning the BBC journalist and the viewers at home.
Tom Enders, the head of Airbus warned his employees and wrote letters to MP’s suggesting that a “no deal” Brexit would be a disaster, which has infuriated Brexiteers and those in the public who support the UK leaving without a transitional agreement. Many have warned the Businessman to “butt out” British politics and for him to get his own house in order before he dictates on what people in the UK should be doing.
Enders said in a video message: “Please don’t listen to the Brexiteers’ madness which asserts that ‘because we have huge plants here we will not move and we will always be here’. They are wrong,”. Mr Francois MP hit back: “My father, Reginald Francois, was a D Day veteran. He never submitted to bullying by any German and neither will his son”. He then proceeds to rip up the letter.
“If he thinks because he runs a big company he can bully British MPs how to vote, he’s going to be sorely mistaken” 🔥— Michael Heaver (@Michael_Heaver) January 25, 2019
