Ex-Spanish President José Luís Rodríguez Zapatero has said that he would support the possible readmission of the UK into the EU.

Speaking on Lanzarote Radio, Zapatero said British opinion polls showed a clear “turn against Brexit” and that “in the future, if the UK requests it, and always with clear conditions and a clause that prevents a further Brexit, the return of the UK to the European Union should be considered.”

“All countries have the right to make a historical mistake, including the UK” said Zapatero, who has become semi-resident in Lanzarote since buying a property in Famara.

Nevertheless, there is currently no talk of rejoining the EU in the UK, as both major British parties currently appear keen to avoid the issue of Brexit completely.
