Esteban Gonzalez Pons claimed the UK is facing its “blackest year in history” following the coronavirus pandemic as he insisted the European Union must help its neighbour. Speaking in the European Parliament, Mr Gonzalez Pons said: “Never in the history of the European Union have we faced so many problems at the same time.

“Let’s think about the UK here because it’s leaving the EU and it will have no access to the recovery fund.

“Families are there for you and it’s the same for the European Union.

“Now in the UK, they will see what it’s like to be alone.

“Therefore, it’s very difficult to understand why some member states in the EU are trying to block the recovery fund.”
