Tories to hire EU staff after Brexit deadline date
Tory MEPs are hiring staff in Brussels despite Boris Johnson’s “do or die” to quit the EU.
If Britain leaves on October 31st all its MEPs will be out of a job.
The new job for an interns start on November 1st.
Liberal Democrat MEP Caroline Voaden said:
“It is ironic that the Conservatives are trying to recruit an intern to join their team and ‘nurture the relationship between the EU and the Conservative Party’.”
However, a Conservative MEPs spokesperson denied the job posting showed the party was planning for a Brexit delay.
“The ECR Group is recruiting an intern from the UK as part of an ongoing scheme to maintain ties now and post-Brexit with the Conservative Party – as the advert makes clear.”
