Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Britain will become a 'second-rate' country after Brexit, says EU Council President Donald Tusk”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The United Kingdom will become a "second-rate player" after Brexit, according to outgoing European Council President Donald Tusk, who said the UK's decision to leave "is the real end of the British Empire."

Speaking at The College of Europe on Wednesday, Tusk urged Remainers to not "give up" in their mission to stop Brexit, saying: "In this match, we had added time, we are already in extra time, perhaps it will even go to penalties?"

Tusk will leave his post on January 1 after holding it throughout the European Union's negotiations with the UK.

In his speech, Tusk said that while Brexiteers want to leave the EU to make the UK "global again," the "reality is exactly the opposite."

"The UK will become an outsider, a second-rate player, while the main battlefield will be occupied by China, the United States and the European Union," he said.
