Markus Ferber: Leaving is what the UK voted for and leaving is what the UK will get

Yesterday night, the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to leave the European Union. German Conservative MEP Markus Ferber (EPP) explained:

“When calling for a referendum about the UK’s EU membership, David Cameron deliberately decided to play with fire. And if you play with fire, you might get burnt. This is what happened with last night’s referendum. The UK will now have to leave the European Union and will not receive any special treatment in the process. There will be no cherry-picking whatsoever. At the end of that process, the UK will be a third country like any other. Leaving is what the UK voted for and leaving is what the UK will get.”
