Thom Yorke of the British rock band Radiohead has lashed out against Theresa May and her handling of the Brexit process – even going as far as comparing it to the Nazi rule in Germany.
In a tweet, Yorke has accused May of using intimidation and bargaining with “the lives of millions of Europeans” in the UK in order to get her way, 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 passengers screaming in the back,” Yorke tweeted without addressing May by name. He urged her to “stop the bus……. now.”
Yorke has been a fervent opponent of Brexit ever since the 2016 referendum, boosting a petition to hold a second popular vote. He accuses Theresa May and the Tories of treating the British people “like lemmings running of a cliff,” and has openly mocked the PM on stage.
