The role of the EU parliament – Brexit podcast

In this episode we look at the role of the EU parliament and its chief negotiator Guy Verhofstadt in the Brexit process.

Joining Jon Henley from Strasbourg is the Labour MEP Richard Corbett, who notes that the EU parliament’s veto on any final deal could become a very powerful tool in the discussions – and reports that many of his colleagues are doubtful that Britain will still want Brexit when they see the deal on offer.

We have an exclusive interview with Guy Verhofstadt himself who spoke to our Brussels bureau chief Daniel Boffey. Verhofstadt says that the EU wants “be generous” to British citizens – if not Britain itself.
