BREXITEER MP Iain Duncan Smith lashed out at Guy Verhofstadt saying he is “not crowing today” and is “actually worried rather than being on top”.
Iain Duncan Smith believes Guy Verhofstadt is actually “worried” and not “on top” after the Belgian Prime Minister tweeted about those who support a no-deal Brexit being “totally irresponsible”. Mr Duncan Smith also urged the European Union to “face put o the fact” that they can strike a “good agreement” with the UK. Sky News host Adam Boulton asked: “You use quite rough words, you said damn well step up to the plate. I don’t know how to put this but who are you, a Tory Brexiteer, to threaten the union of the 27?” The former Tory leader replied: “I’m not threatening them at all, I’m just saying it’s in their interests to make sure they are sensible and reasonable about this process.
“I have to tell you, when Mr Verhofstadt comes out and makes a comment like that, I know that he’s actually worried rather than actually being on top.
Mr Duncan Smith also commented on the housing market earlier in the programme, remarking: “As an MP I have to say when prices of houses don’t rocket up I think that’s better for those at the bottom of the market.
“At the end of it all, I don’t believe that these things are forever, house prices go up, house prices go down, what we’ve actually seen is prolonged period both of growth and of course of price rises in housing.
“So in a sense all of these things are in the way short term. What we have to exercise is the UK, the fifth largest economy in the world will do well whatever the circumstances.
