The Brexit Party MEP launched a fuming attack on the European Parliament President, calling him “immoral” for bypassing not only Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but also British Parliament as a whole to negotiate with the controversial Speaker. She said to Mr Sassoli: “You have no right to go and speak with the UK Speaker and have conversations that are directly interfering into our domestic politics. “It exposes your intentions to intervene at all levels to stop Brexit.
“It is immoral – shame on you!”
Ms De Lucy was not done at that, and moved on to Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, who had made a patronising speech to EU Parliament that referred to the UK as being “just British”.
She said: “And Mr Barnier, I note about your speech sir…
“I note throughout your speech that you kept referring to the British negotiators as ‘just British’.

“We are the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and that will never change.”
He reference to Northern Ireland comes less than 24 hours after shocking news broke that the bloc were attempting to keep Belfast in the EU sabotaging Mr Johnson’s attempts at a deal.
A furious phone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel saw the Brexit negations crumble a matter of weeks before the deadline of October 31.
Today, however, a further twist in the Brexit debacle has emerged.

David Sassoli had colluded on Brexit with Commons Speaker John Bercow
Mr Bercow bypassed the Prime Minister to negotiate with the EU on Brexit for the United Kingdom.
Brexit Party chair Richard Tice took to Twitter in a furious rampage against the Speaker of the Commons, arguing the Tory MP has no authority to act on behalf of Mr Johnson.
Mr Tice said: “Here in Brussels new President Sassoli admits in chamber that he has bypassed the UK PM and Govt and is now in direct discussions with Bercow about Brexit negotiations. He refused to take my urgent question on what authority they had to have these discussions.”
It has also been claimed an option Mr Sassoli has agreed with Mr Bercow is a second EU referendum, sparking fury among Brexiteers.

When asked if the claim was true, Mr Tice said: “Yes I am in chamber, we Brexit Party MEPs nearly fell off our chairs, gobsmacked.”
Fellow Brexit Party MEP David Bull said: “It’s absolutely outrageous.”
Nigel Farage also expressed his rage.
He told his 1.43million followers: “Here in Brussels, new Europarl President David Sassoli confirms a meeting with John Bercow in which they agreed to work to prevent a clean break Brexit.
“What right does the Speaker have to do this? Disgraceful!”
Mr Sassoli gave his own statement on the matter.
He said: “This morning I had a fruitful discussion with Speaker Bercow.
“Speaker Bercow and I were very much on the same wavelength regarding the importance of the roles of our respective parliaments in managing Brexit.”
The deadline is drawing ever-closer
The Bruges Group added: “John Bercow has no authority to negotiate on behalf of the United Kingdom.
“None whatsoever. Reports that he has been involved in discussions with Juncker over an extension are extremely serious.”
The shocking news comes after Mr Bercow, who is supposed to be impartial, mocked Brexiteers who have accused him of Remain bias, saying it is “bad form to blame the referee”.
Mr Bercow is repeatedly accused of failing to act impartially as the Speaker. He has long been a thorn in the side of Brexiteers and has on many occasions intervened to hinder his own party.
