Ms Huhtasaari unleashed fury in the EU Parliament during a Brexit debate on Wednesday. The Finnish MEP did not hold back in her condemnation of the Brussels bloc and its institutions. She said: “I would like to congratulate Great Britain they just saved around €80billion.
“Soon no one in Britain will even dare to admit voting against Brexit.
“The European Commission proposal for a recovery fund is another step towards a centralised debt union.
“This proposal is illegal according to article 125. The Commission also wants the EU’s own sources of taxation passed in the member states.
“In the EU a large part of its economic problems would be reduced if the monetary union of the euro was dismantled.

“According to a study, Finnish exports would be 40 percent higher in their own currency. I want my money back!”
It comes as the “inefficiencies of the European Union” were further laid bare by an Italian MEP, who launched into a blistering rant against the Union’s failing recovery package to solve the impacts of the coronavirus crisis.
Speaking in the same EU Parliament debate eurosceptic Marco Zanni said: “We were told this week there would be a European Council of which we already knew the conclusion.
“No agreement on the so-called recovery plan. and probably a clash between member states.
“Well, this demonstrates the inefficiencies of the European institutions in providing a response to the crisis.
“The Commission made a proposal which was in itself highly inefficient.”
