‘We don’t WANT to go’ EU snubbed by its OWN staff as they want to STAY in UK after Brexit

BRUSSELS was facing a humiliating mutiny from its own staff today as three quarters of workers at the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said they want to stay in Britain rather than move to its new EU base.

In a dramatic mutiny MEPs have been told that 75 per cent of the workforce, which includes top scientists and academics, would rather remain in London even after the UK has left the bloc.

The revelation is a massive blow to the EU’s pride after it trumpeted Brexit as an opportunity to relocate the regulatory agency to the continent alongside its banking equivalent.

It comes on the same day that 23 European cities officially submitted bids to become the new home of the EMA, talking up their own positives as places to live and work.

They include Amsterdam, Barcelona and Milan, but it appears none of the options on the table are anywhere near as appealing to EMA staff as staying in the British capital they have made home.

The EMA is by far the biggest of the two regulatory bodies set to leave Britain after it quits the EU and employs some 890 staff out of their combined workforce of 1,000.

European Parliament sources have told the Telegraph that MEPs have now been briefed that three quarters of them may refuse to make the move, sparking a potential crisis for the EU.

Tory MPs immediately suggested that the UK Government should make the staff members, most of whom are EU27 nationals, lucrative offers to work for our own new regulatory bodies that will be set up after Brexit.

Conservative Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, the MP for the Cotswolds who supported Britain leaving the EU, said Theresa May should now turn the tables on Brussels and poach the highly skilled work force.
