Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke says Brexit Britain is like HITLER’S THIRD REICH

The frontman of the band took to Twitter on Friday to express his fury over the Prime Minister’s handling of Brexit. Although he never mentions Mrs May by name, there is a reference to No 10’s “Project Fear” when writing: “Fear is not a weapon to be used by a UK Prime Minster in the 21st century.” The vocal critic of the Conservative party also likened Brexit to “the early days of the Third Reich”.

Yorke, 50, wrote: “Nobody voted for you to threaten chaos upon this land in myriad form in order to intimidate its citizens and Parliament.

“Nobody voted for you to bring into question the lives of millions of Europeans in this country as a bargaining tool, in so doing causing immense distress and suffering, an action worthy of the early days of the Third Reich.

“Nobody voted for you to drive this red bus over a cliff with the passengers screaming in the back.

“None of this has been an expression of the democracy you have been claiming to uphold.

“Fear is not a weapon to by used by a UK Prime Minister in the 21st century.

“Stop the bus… now.”

The tweet, which had received over 1,300 retweets and nearly 6,500 likes by Saturday, has bizarrely been met by huge support.

One person wrote: “Certainly right about ‘the red bus’ over the cliff and sing people as bargaining chips.

“Is there any way out of this mess?”

Another wrote: “Well said, Thom. I couldn’t have put it better myself.”

A third wrote: “Thom Yorke it is brave and necessary to speak publicly during these times, and frightening.

“Your words will be a wake up call for many.

“I am proud of and for you.

“It must be a huge relief to express yourself.

“Be careful too. These are crazy times!”

Mr Yorke has used the cliff analogy before, when he accused the government of treating UK citizens like “lemmings running of a cliff” in October 2018.

He also used Radiohead’s Glastonbury set to criticise the Prime Minister.

The singer repeatedly recited Mrs May’s “strong and stable” election slogan during the band’s headline set and also muttered: “See you later, Theresa, shut the door on the way out.”
