DONALD TUSK appeared to taunt Brexit-backing MPs by sharing a letter from a six-year-old English girl — featuring a drawing of a unicorn.
‘I know we are leaving the EU,’ the letter reads. ‘But I think we should be friends. From Sophie, aged 6.’
The European Council president replied in a Twitter post: ‘We will always be friends, Sophie.’ While she may have had no special reason for signing off with the unicorn, it is a term used to discredit ‘unrealistic’ Brexiteers.
Officials denied the letter was a fake and EU Parliament Brexit co-ordinator Guy Verhofstadt tweeted: ‘Sometimes it takes a child to put everything in perspective.’ Mr Tusk has a history of cheeky posts and drew fury last month when he tweeted there was a ‘special place in hell’ for those who backed Brexit without a plan to deliver it.
