‘Dishonesty… shameful… betrayal’: Brexit backers angry at May’s ‘deal’ with EU
The agreement reached by the government of Prime Minister Theresa May to take the UK out of the EU has angered many supporters of Brexit, who are calling it a shameful surrender and betrayal of the 2016 referendum.
After 10 Downing Street announced that most of May’s cabinet backed the deal she hammered out with Brussels and published the nearly 600-page document, advocates of a negotiated split from the EU were furious.
Nigel Farage, former UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader called it“the worst deal in history” and urged any genuine Brexiteers in the cabinet to “resign or never be trusted again.”Other reactions posted on social media were no kinder.
“May must be an imbecile if she thinks people will accept this is leaving. Nothing has changed. We've just lost 40 billion pounds,” wrote Twitter user John DeVries.
