'Rats' and 'parrots' in heated EU debate on Brexit

MEPs traded barbed words in a debate on Brexit in Strasbourg Tuesday. Belgian liberal Verhofstadt said Brexit leaders in UK who had resigned after the vote were "rats leaving a sinking ship". British Tory Kamall said Brexit critics "jabbered" like "parrots". Green MEP Harms said she "despised" far-right eurosceptics. German deputy Weber called Brexiters "irresponsible". British eurosceptic MEP Nutall decried EU "bullying" and called for a "grown up" Brexit debate.
