Brexiteers have reacted with anger after the House of Commons voted to stop the UK leaving the EU without a deal, whilst the Tory Party is in disarray after Prime Minister Theresa May lost control of her own motion.
Veteran Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage said immediately after the vote, “A total disgrace, Parliament no longer represents the people,” adding, “This is a Parliament of outright liars. We will have to fight them again. And mark my words — we will beat them once more.”
Mr Farage later penned a piece for The Telegraph, where he confirmed what he had written in 2017 that “The great Brexit betrayal has begun,” noting, “Well, although it pains me to say it, the vote in Parliament to take no deal off the table proves that, 20 months ago, I was right.”
Tory Brexiteer MP Bernard Jenkin called it a “sad day for democracy” whilst MEP Dan Hannan accused “Tory Euro-zealots” of “delegitimising our system of government.”
UKIP Member of the London Assembly David Kurten called the vote “shameful,” saying that “they have defied the will of the people,” while UKIP tweeted that the “political establishment must now prepare for a political earthquake” with a resurgence of the party at the polls.
