In a “deeply cynical” move MEPs have put forward the motion apparently aimed at wrecking progress on talks.

The debate next week has also been timed to coincide with the Conservative conference so many British eurosceptic MEPs will be away to defend the UK’s reputation.

Tory MEP David Campbell Bannerman, a leading Brexit campaigner, blamed the European Parliament’s Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt for the attack.

He said: “I have always been convinced that Verhofstadt is a wrecker who wants to wreck the talks so he can recommend that the European Parliament rejects the final outcome of the talks.”

He pointed out that the motion was not binding but was aimed at damaging the reputation of the UK Government.

He said: “This is another example of them holding a debate on the UK during the Conservative conference in a deeply cynical move which shows contempt for Britain.

“Obviously they want the Tory MEPs to be away so we cannot defend Brexit and the UK talks.”

He added: “It just shows that the sooner we are rid of this lot the better.”
