June Mummery told Express.co.uk that Boris Johnson’s Brexit negotiating team was not prepared and should have listened to industries that directly affected by the terms such as the fishing sector. The former Brexit Party MEP added that there is a culture of failure for Britain’s coastal communities. 

Ms Mummery said: “We totally failed, we were not prepared.

“I still believe that the reason Boris did this awful deal is because we were not prepared.

“I don’t think anything was done, I was flagging this up continuously.

“It shows the inability at the very highest level, they did not foresee and listen to the industries that were concerned.

“This is a systemic problem, we are a culture of failure for the coastal communities.”

During the same interview, Boris Johnson’s Brexit team was slammed as “amateurs” for letting Michel Barnier and the European Union “pull the wool over their eyes” during trade negotiations.

Ms Mummery told Express.co.uk that it took her three weeks to get over the post-Brexit fishing terms agreed with the EU.

The former Brexit Party MEP compared the trade agreement to a “crime scene” and praised Michel Barnier and the European Union’s team. 

Brexit: UK 'had wool pulled over their eyes' says Mummery

Ms Mummery said: “The negotiations that happened were absolutely amateur.

“It is amateur, it is a crime scene, they did not look at everything.

“They went over there and the wool was pulled completely over their eyes.

“You have got to hand it to Mr Barnier, he is a very clever bloke.

“His team was a better side than ours.”

She continued: “I am disappointed, I am getting over it but it took me three weeks to get over this.

“It was horrific, one of the worst parts of this is that I am a Brexiteer and we are seeing some benefits already, I am ecstatic about that and really happy for us all, but all of a sudden you kind of feel you are on your own.

“Because a lot of Brexiteers are happy with that so you lose some of your support.”
