Brexit news: Ian Holloway lashes out at MPs in astonishing Brexit rant | UK | News

The Conservative MPs who were expelled this week from the party are now preparing legal action incase Mr Johnson refuses to seek a delay to Brexit, the BBC has reported. Ian Holloway hit out at MPs for “squabbling and arguing” over Brexit, claiming they are being “selfish”. Speaking on talkSPORT, the English football manager said: “I watched Question Time last night and I have never seen such an absolute waste of time, where people are squabbling and arguing.

“Yes, we all know that three years ago we asked, whether we are right or wrong, to get out. Get out of the EU, that’s what 52 percent to 48 said, so really, why’s it taking this long?

“It’s taking this long because the Remainers have argued with it. I don’t care whether, whatever you voted in this country, our country is in a mess right now so sort it out.

“It’s about common sense, do you know what I’m saying? They’re all juggling around for themselves, I thought their job was to actually look after our best interests.

“So if we’ve already had the vote, which we didn’t actually know what we were voting for in the first place really, deep down.

“If you’ve just been voted in by your party, how can they suddenly vote against you?

“Do you know what I mean? Are you a team or not? You know. I don’t get it, and all I’m saying is selfish, selfish, selfish.”

The former Crystal Palace manager added: “So I’m asking them to stop thinking about yourself, stop wondering whether this or that, and get it done.

“It needs to be almost a war situation where we have a coalition Government, sort it out.

Mr Johnson said last week he has no intention of seeking an extension and would rather “die in a ditch” than delay Brexit.

The Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying he was only bound “in theory” by the new legislation.

Meanwhile Sian Berry, co-leader of the Green Party, said opposition parties are “absolutely united” in opposing a general election until the “threat” of a no-deal Brexit is “eliminated”.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, she said: “We’ve not responded to the goads of the Prime Minister to try and call a general election now because we know that there is too much risk attached to that. We cannot risk a no-deal Brexit.”

She added: “I think the Prime Minister is very rattled by this, he’s faced by one of the most powerful things that can be, which is a group of unlikely allies getting together for the common good.”
