George Galloway dismantles the “great myth” of EU solidarity while Italy is left “abandoned” | World | news

The European Union was slammed for its response to the coronavirus pandemic despite promoting “EU solidarity”. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte earlier this week accused member states of being slow in helping the country during the health crisis. Former Labor MP George Galloway revealed how this meant that the union’s values ​​of cooperation and help were after all a “great myth”.

He continued: “It is clear that international borders exist after all.

“French President Emmanuel Macron would have closed his with Britain unless Boris Johnson had shifted his political orientation.

“Well, he could have been right or he might have been wrong.

“But keep this in mind, almost 50 percent of all British food comes from overseas, and largely across English Channel ports from France.”

Galloway also spoke of the UK’s “slow” response to the outbreak of COVID-19.

He said: “It is clear that the British government of Boris Johnson has a policy which is neither fish nor poultry.

“It has a policy that is neither one thing nor the other.

“In any case, it was too late.

“At least 10 days, maybe 14 days too late to implement.”
