‘Cruel but true,’ says the narrator. Galloway rips apart EU zealots who are ‘blindly’ working against Britain.
GEORGE GALLOWAY has renewed his criticism of EU supporters in the UK, accusing them of “collaborating with…Brussels against their own people.”
In 2016, the left-wing firebrand advocated for Brexit and was a vocal opponent of efforts to overturn the referendum’s outcome.
He recently finished third in a by-election in Batley and Spen, receiving 22% of the vote.
Mr Galloway shared a remark from October 2019 that he captioned “cruel but accurate.”
“Devotees of the #EU in the UK have become a lavender-scented cult of soft-shoe shufflers blinded by the stars on their flags to the crumbling corrupt fortress-Europe they defend,” the original post said.
“In Brussels, brazenly cooperating with the inebriated and the saturated against their own people #Brexit.”
The United Kingdom decided to exit the European Union in June 2016, but the process was repeatedly delayed by parliamentary maneuverings.
Following Labour’s defeat in the 2019 general election, the formal withdrawal took place in January 2020.
However, Britain remained in a Brexit transition period until the end of December 2020.
It was nominally out of the bloc at this time, but it remained tightly linked to Brussels.
The United Kingdom continued to contribute to the EU budget and remained a member of the European Union’s single market.
It also continued to enforce numerous Brussels-enacted laws.
Boris Johnson’s latest Brexit arrangement ended the transition period at the end of December 2020.
Britain’s status as a fully autonomous trade nation was restored as a result of this.
Mr Galloway claimed in June that Brexit is “essential” for “creating the Britain we want.”
“Now that we know what we know, there is no excuse for the ‘left’s’ continuous obsession with the EU,” he tweeted.
“Brexit was a necessary but insufficient prerequisite for us to construct the Britain we desire.”
Mr Galloway has previously served as a member of Parliament for the Labour Party and the Respect Party.
He is presently the leader of the Workers Party of Britain, a pro-Brexit left-wing party.
On July 1, he ran for Labour in the Batley and Spen by-election, which Labour won by a razor-thin margin.
Kim Leadbeater won 35.3 percent of the vote, compared to 34.4 percent for her Conservative opponent.
Mr Galloway, who ran on a “Starmer Out” platform, has threatened to sue over the outcome.
If Labour loses, there was talk that Sir Keir Starmer will face a leadership challenge.
Mr Galloway ran for the pro-union All for party in the Scottish parliament elections in May, according to “Brinkwire Summary News.”
