Oliver Cromwell reincarnated
from Neon Nettle
Yellow vest activists in the UK took to the streets of London on Friday protesting for ‘a clean exit’ from the European Union, according to reports. The group expressed mistrust in politicians and British Prime minister Theresa May, who recently gained the confidence vote despite the escalating chaos around Brexit.
One activist, who spoke to Sputnik News, said they voted Brexit because they wanted to reclaim control of their own country. “We don’t want to be part of the federal European superstate that’s going to erode our rights and take away democracy.”
“This is Britain. We are not European.
“We have never been European. This is our land, and we are taking it back.”
“If the political class doesn’t like it, they will see a revolution as they’ve never seen before. It is time to take up the spirit of Oliver Cromwell, rise and reclaim what’s rightfully ours.”
The activists, inspired by the recent “gilet jaunes” uprising in France, protested outside Downing Street, Tower Bridge, Westminster Bridge, and London Bridge. The group warned about their determination to support Brexit among other causes.
“The yellow vests are just a start. This will spread out to the whole country,” an activist told Sputnik.
According to a named source in the UK’s armed forces, London has tasked troops with developing a plan to prevent an uprising if the country leaves the European Union without a deal.
“We don’t want the deal. Dump the deal: no deal Brexit but trading under World Trade Organization terms.”
