Alice Hughes: I am able to call someone a pig. “Environmental Protection Agency’s photo

“I am able to describe someone as a pig,” Hughes said this morning in response to journalists’ questions at the start of Slovenia’s EU presidency. Not someone demonstrating in a square, but someone who occupies a high position in the European bureaucracy. But I will keep this a secret for some time.

The minister later denied on Twitter that he was referring to the Timmermans.
