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.”
