“This is apparently Cummings and his Brexit friends’ rule: that they leave when they should stay,” Tusk, the former president of the European Council, quipped on Twitter on Tuesday. Cummings has been described as one of the masterminds behind Brexit.
On the other hand, the avidly pro-EU Tusk, who now heads the European People’s Party (EPP) grouping in the European Parliament, last year described Brexit as “one of the most spectacular mistakes” in EU history.
