Tory MP and Brexiteer John Redwood argued the EU’s opinion on Brexit and Brexit Britain will eventually shift. During an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Redwood claimed not only was Brexit the best decision for Britain but the EU also. He added that Brussels would come to see that Brexit would be good for them in the future as well.
Mr Redwood argued the EU will likely want to do more business with a successful Britain as well.
He said: “As someone who has been a commentator and analyst of the EU for many years I know that there are many different voices in the EU that will wish us well.
“Why wouldn’t they want to be friendly with their neighbours?
“Surely it would be better to have a successful and prosperous United Kingdom as a trading partner and often a class ally.

“I think once the Brexit annoyances calm down, and there have clearly been quite a few of those to the EU, they will come to respect our decision.
“They will understand that Brexit was in their best interest as well as ours.
“Then I think the EU will want to do more with us because it is in our mutual benefit to do so.”
Mr Redwood insisted that the EU would be able to more easily move towards fulfilling their European project without the UK.

“What I want to see the Government do, now that it has taken back control of our fishing waters, is work with the industry to build a bigger UK fishing fleet.
“This is so we can land more of the fish that we can catch in the UK.
“I want to see them attract food processing industries so that we are not just selling wet fish to those that like it but also processed fish in many forms, good meals and good recipes.”
