Raheem Kassam, editor-in-chief of Breitbart News London, political activist and former chief adviser to UKIP leader Nigel Farage, said on Saturday that PM Theresa May’s Brexit betrayal was the “tip of the iceberg,” and that it’s the first time that those who have been confident the UK would leave the EU have felt “genuine trepidation that the whole thing won’t happen at all.”
“Look at the way she treated President Trump at the United Nations,” Kassam said. “Instead of using her speech to promote Britain in the world, she used it to attack President Trump on immigration and refugees, as well as harping on about climate change deals and a long-deceased Pakistani prime minister. Not a single mention of the word Brexit.”
Kassam said he spoke with diplomats, professors, and Conservative Party operatives who agreed that PM May will “use the United States and President Trump as a cudgel by which to break Brexit.”
Kassam believes PM May is going to insult Pres. Trump to the point where the U.S. won’t want to deal with Britain. When that happens she’ll then blame him, and say the UK should abandon Brexit for economic security.
“The question the Conservative Party must now ask itself is simple: is it a party of globalism, or is a philosophically conservative party?” Kassam said.
If the answer is conservative, Kassam said the party needs to “remove Theresa May as Prime Minister post-haste.”
