EU's Brexit opposition fuelling far-right, warns Raab

By Aubrey Allegretti, political reporter
EU leaders are fuelling a rise of the far-right because of their refusal to accept democratic decisions like Brexit, Dominic Raab has warned.
The Brexit secretary accused senior figures in Brussels of boosting fringe and populist movements across the continent.He was hitting back at French President Emmanuel Macron, who at this week's Salzburg summit accused senior Leave campaigners of lying during the 2016 referendum campaign."I think that's not the kind of language of either statesmanship or friendship, particularly at a summit," Mr Raab told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show."If someone wants to point out something that I've said which is a lie, feel free to do so but I don't accept that."

He added: "One thing that I would say though is that the EU has a habit of spurning democratic votes, whether in referendums in this country - and they're trying to do that to some degree - or the rest of the EU.
