Gary Neville has launched a brutal new attack on British Prime Minister Boris Johnson after the leader apparently compared the horrific scenes in Ukraine right now to Brexit.
Ukraine has been attacked by Russia since last month in what has been a horrific invasion. The first towns to come under fire were Donetsk and Luhansk in the Donbass region, although this has now shifted to Kyiv and Mariupol.
The war has led people around the world to show support for Ukraine, with a number of countries coming to its aid. Ukrainian families have been torn apart by the war, and many have fled to neighboring countries such as Poland.
But after Johnson’s comments on Saturday, the Prime Minister was chastised by many for his failure to show affection to those in danger – with Neville expressing his anger. “I know it’s the instinct of the people of this country, like the Ukrainian people, to choose freedom every time,” Johnson said. noted Saturday.
“I can give you some recent and famous examples. When Britons voted in such large numbers for Brexit, I don’t think they were hostile to foreigners.
“It’s because they wanted to be free.”
His words obviously angered Neville, who called Johnson a “shame”. “It’s an absolute disgrace all the way!” Neville tweeted on Saturday.
