John Bolton, following his first meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London, took aim at the EU for prolonging the Brexit process and not respecting the result of the 2016 referendum. Mr Bolton called the EU’s bluff and insisted its refusal to re-negotiate the failed withdrawal agreement was a ploy to “make the peasants vote again and again”. Mr Bolton said: “The fashion in the European Union is when the people vote the wrong way from the way the elites want to go, is to make the peasants vote again and again until they get it right.
“There was a vote – everyone knew what the issues were. It is hard to imagine that anyone in this country did not know what was at stake.
“The result is the way it was. That’s democracy.”
The damming remarks by the top US official – echoed the beliefs of leading Brexiteers throughout the past three years since the historic vote.
Leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg has constantly hit out at the EU and previously stated the UK has lost its “democratic right” by being in the shackles of the bloc.
