Ms Huhtasaari added: “They also want to be free of the EU’s Court of Justice. That’s obvious because the UK wants to be an independent sovereign state.
“Boris Johnson should ensure that Brits get back the things they voted for and the EU has to stop being fearful of that.
“The EU often says, if you leave this EU paradise, then things will go badly for you. We have to stop fearmongering about the future.
“What will happen to the EU in the future and its member-states? Only time will tell.
“I am envious of the Brits because they can actually do something in the world now.”
