Kristian Thulesen Dahl, the leader of the DPP has insisted the party is observing Brexit closely so they can follow a similar path out of the European Union.
Speaking on a Brexit Central podcast, the leader said they are studying what happens to Britain during the process.
He said: “What we are studying here in Great Britain is because we in Denmark are very Eurosceptical as well.
“We think that far to much is being spent in Brussels and we would like to regain power to our nation as well as the Brits are doing when it comes to the Brexit.”
The deputy chairman, Søren Espersen, reiterated this message, before he described Britain’s decision to leave the EU as “inspirational”.
He added: “We are here in London at the moment to study what is going on during these Brexit negotiations.
“To us, this is like an inspiration, and something that we might achieve after there has been a deal between the UK and the rest of Europe.”
Mr Espersen continued as he suggested that the European Union was attempting to punish Britain for voting to cut ties with Brussels last June.
He said: “We got to various places and meet various people, and we are noticing all the obstacles the UK is now facing, mainly because the attitude in the European Parliament, the European Commission.”
