'Should be a team effort' Zahawi erupts at ex-Danish PM over EU's Ukraine claims


In a fiery BBC Question Time row between Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Nadhim Zahawi over the UK’s efforts to support Ukrainians against Russia, the former Danish Prime Minister was put in place. She said: “First of all, you said something that almost made me chuckle before when you said that Putin will think the UK’s leading the efforts against Russia right now.

“Of course, it’s not. The European Union is leading the effort against Russia.

“I don’t think they’ll see Boris Johnson as a particular leader in this field.

“Just to set that straight.”

Mr Zahawi interjected: “It should be a team effort, coordinated which it is.”
