Donald Tusk urges Brits to ‘not give up on reversing Brexit’

Despite striking a deal with Boris Johnson last month, Donald Tusk has now advised campaigners to not give up on stopping Brexit.

The European Council president seemingly backed Mr Johnson’s opponents in the upcoming general election by saying the UK will become "an outsider, a second-rate player" after Britain leaves the EU.

He added that a friend who suggested it is "the real end of the British Empire" is probably right.
