A Brexit Party MEP has said that she has considered leaving the UK if Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal is passed.
In a bizarre monologue on the Brexit Party’s online show, BrexBox, Alexandra Phillips MEP said that Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal – despite creating the mechanisms for Brexit – was “awful” and “like watching a horror movie”. She said that if it passed she would consider leaving the UK.
“In my darkest moments when I was lying in bed at night and couldn’t sleep I was thinking if that treaty is signed I just don’t want to go back to the UK, I’ll leave.
“I can’t have my country become what it will become under that treaty.”
It is not the first time Brexit Party figures have appeared to be at odds with their only party line (Brexit). This week, we revealed that some Brexit Party figures had criticised MPs who vote for Brexit. Now, a senior Brexit Party figure has appeared to criticise the policy.
And it was not the only cringeworthy moment of the episode. Later on in the show, the party’s lawyer corrected Phillips when she falsely claimed that the EU could force Britain to join wars, and David Bull MEP let his man of the people facade slip as he wore a signet ring throughout the show.
Alexandra Phillips cannot watch Britain become what it will become under Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal. That’s one thing we can agree with her on.
