Prominent Leave campaigner David Campbell Bannerman, who is also a former UKIP deputy leader, Tweeted a comment which reflects growing public anger at the way Prime Minister Teresa May is handling Brexit. Campbell – Bannerman tweeted that some Remain supporting MPs and MEP have aligned themselves with Brussels and are working against Britain in the Brexit negotiations.
Mr Campbell Bannerman Tweeted: “It is about time we brought the Treason Act up to date and made it apply to those seeking to destroy or undermine the British state. That means extreme jihadis. It also means those in future actively working undemocratically against UK through extreme EU loyalty.”
The comment sparked fury among some Remain campaigners who objected to being linked to jihadis. I sympathise with them, they are not like jihadis at all, they are more like pools of putrid pig slurry.
