At the EU summit in Brussels Mr Juncker and Mr Tusk were asked ‘what is your message to the 48 percent of British voters who voted to remain in the EU and are still, some of them campaigning to cancel Brexit?’. An uncomfortable Mr Tusk said: “My opinion is I have to agree that is was only 48 and not 52.”
