BASIL DEFENDS BREXIT: Cleese Under Fire For Anti-Immigration Tweet

JOHN CLEESE has caused a stir on Twitter this morning, after he tweeted about London not being an “English city anymore”. The Monty Python star, 79, took to Twitter to share his spot-on thoughts in view of his 5.6 million followers this morning.

He commented: “Some years ago I opined that London was not really an English city any more.

Since then, virtually all my friends from abroad have confirmed my observation

I note also that London was the UK city that voted most strongly to remain in the EU.”

Cleese’s tweet and a triggered reply.

John’s post triggered many of his left-wing Twitter followers to comment.

One remainer queried: “You mean it’s a bit like New York?”

A second added: “London is an amazing city, and it’s packed-full of people from all over the world, so perhaps that amazingness is a result of that same multiculturalism?

Overall, however, Cleese’s tweet was received with rapturous applause by thousands of Brits completely fed-up with mass immigration and the erosion of British identity.

The Fawlty Towers star has openly supported Brexit and previously referred to the country’s debate as “one of the most depressing things about this country”.

He also revealed he is keen to move to the Caribbean island of Nevis after being disappointed with the government.

He told BBC2’s Newsnight: “I just thought to myself: ‘Right I’ll just give up and try somewhere else.’”

He said of his potential new home: “It’s one of the nicest islands I’ve ever been on.

The relationship between the races is absolutely superb. The people there are really kind.”

John also previously insisted he doesn’t believe Brexit is a “mistake”.

He told the Radio Times: “I’m rather delighted that all these forecasts of doom and destruction have turned out, at this point, not to have been real.”

And elaborating on his reasons why he voted Leave, he added: “I don’t want to be ruled by Brussels bureaucrats who want to create a super state.

I was pro-Brexit for that reason.

If I had three words to sum up why we had to get out of Europe, they would be: Jean-Claude Juncker.”
