May vs May – Brian May slams “vain” Prime Minister

Brian May has slammed Theresa May saying she is “driven by vanity and thirst for power”.

In a “battle of the Mays” the Queen guitarist accused the Prime Minister of being vain before taking aim at the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, which he described as “the dumbest thing Britain has ever done in my lifetime”.

Speaking to German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, the legendary musician called Brexit a “tragedy” and “disaster”.

He said: “She (Theresa May) is, like Cameron before her, driven by vanity and thirst for power.

“It was wrong from the beginning to ask the British to vote on Brexit, which has consequences that most were unaware of.

“I’m upset that a few politicians have managed to throw us under a bus. I sincerely hope that we can manage to get out of it again. It’s a disaster, because the losses that are caused by it will be huge for us.”

“Brexit is the dumbest thing Britain has ever done in my lifetime.”

“For me and for many other Britons, this is an absolute tragedy, because the story is going in the wrong direction.”

“It was always important to me to identify similarities and to work together. Brexit destroys the work of a whole generation that has brought Europe together.”

    Surely someone at TLE knows the difference between “vein”, a blood carrying vessel in the body, and “vain”, the adjective from “vanity”, which is what Brian May is accusing his namesake of. You may think this is nitpicking – which it probably is – but what impression does that kind of language mistake make, especially when it’s in a headline?

      Yes ! It’s the Pedants’ revolt. I quite agree that spelling is critical to credibility.
      I object to finishing your first sentence with a preposition. This is something up with which I will not put.

    The brexiters mobilised ALL their troops at the last referendum. They will be outnumbered next time as people have woken up to the fact it’s a really bad idea.
