EU politician Breton says Brexit is “catastrophe” for UK

PARIS, Oct 26 (Reuters) – Thierry Breton, the French politician who can be the European Commission’s inner market commissioner, mentioned on Tuesday that Brexit was a “catastrophe” for the United Kingdom.

“Look at what is happening on the supermarket shelves, look at what is happening at the petrol pumps, look at what is happening with the shortage of nurses and doctors, look at what is happening with the shortage of truck drivers, look at what is happening in the construction sector,” Breton informed BFM TV.

“What is currently happening is a real drama,” he added.
