Dear Sir Vince,
I am writing to you regarding the second episode of the Channel 4 documentary, “Carry On Brussels” in which the Liberal Democrat MEP, Catherine Bearder is one of the featured characters.
In it, Ms Bearder is filmed actively encouraging the European Parliament’s lead for the Brexit negotiations, Guy Verhofstadt MEP and his team to work as hard as possible to make negotiations as difficult as possible.
This is of course a deliberate attempt to undermine the UK’s negotiating position and done knowingly in order to make life in the UK as difficult as is possible in the attempt to turn public opinion against the Referendum result.
Could you tell me if this is deliberate Liberal Democrat Policy over the Brexit negotiations, or was Ms Bearder working on her own initiative? If the former isn’t this a disreputable way of going about things, working deliberately against the interest of the Government with a foreign politician?
If the latter, what are you going to do about this freelance behaviour?
Gerard Batten MEP,
