Ex-Labor minister tells EU to 'forget Great Britain' during Brexit talks

British prime minister sends letter to European Council President Donald Tusk formally triggering Article 50, the start of negotiations for the United Kingdom's divorce proceedings from the European Union

 

Lord Mandelson was branded a traitor on Saturday after he urged EU chiefs to screw Britain in Brexit talks.

Lord Mandelson showed where his true loyalties lie in an astonishing interview with the German newspaper Die Zeit.
