Cummings humiliates a pro-Brexit Remainer on the bus: ‘You’re still at the starting line.’
DOMINIC CUMMINGS has lambasted an outspoken Remainer for still talking about the Brexit campaign five years after the vote.
The former Prime Minister’s chief adviser is known for his candor and disdain for Westminster’s London-centric bubble. While the former director of Vote Leave recognized that Brexit was “possibly a mistake,” he was unconcerned about its democratic consequences.
“An positive of Brexit is now it’s clear who has duty for mending it, our democratically elected MPs,” he tweeted last night.
“If they don’t solve it, and we go on with a dysfunctional system and no significant emergency system, it’ll be a data point for ‘Brexit didn’t go as planned.’
“If it gets better…”
Dr Mike Galsworthy, ignoring the maverick adviser’s remark, answered by referring to the campaign’s red bus, which featured a message saying that leaving the EU would allow the government to give the NHS an extra £350 million per week.
“That is not what was written on the bus…”, claimed the founder of the Remain group Scientists4EU.
Mr Cummings quickly shot this down, saying, “‘Take back control’ (another campaign slogan) was on the bus…
“This is what it literally implies…
“Elite-Remain-Twitter is still at the starting line five years later…”
Mr Cummings stated in a recent interview with the BBC that the motto on the bus was chosen on purpose to “drive the Remain campaign insane.”
His reaction came as a stunning report exposed the economic damage that Brexit has caused to many EU countries’ economy.
According to Facts4EU.Org, Germany is the largest loser, with its economy down £12.2 billion in the last year compared to 2016, the year of the referendum vote.
Belgium (£3.7 billion), France (£3.3 billion), the Netherlands (£2.7 billion), and Spain (£2.6 billion) came in second and third, respectively.
The website also revealed that UK customers spent £28 billion less on EU goods last year than they did the year before the referendum.
Sweden was ranked sixth, with a £1.2 billion deficit, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
The Czech Republic (£1.1 billion), Italy (£0.7 billion), Slovakia (£0.4 billion), and Portugal (£0.4 billion) came in second and third, respectively.
The website argued that the drop in trade was not due to a “Covid effect” or additional border procedures.
“As the EU’s largest economy, it is unsurprising that Germany has lost the most in terms of financial totals,” it added in a statement.
