The anti-Brexit writer listed a series of “hysterical” economic woes he said Britain is now facing. He then laid full blame for these on anyone who voted for the UK to exit the EU. The arch-Remainer took to Twitter yesterday and wrote: “Dear Brexiters!

“This is YOUR decision. YOUR vote. YOUR PM. YOUR Government. YOUR 80-seat majority Parliament. YOUR Brexit.

“You said the EU need us more so we could get any deal we wanted.

“So every delayed supply, every lost job, every closed business, is your DELIBERATE fault.”

However, a Twitter follower was quick to respond and wrote: “As someone who thought long and hard about my vote, I can honestly say Brexit has gone far better than I thought the early days would go; not nearly the cliff-edge disaster you warned about.

“You point to issues with staff shortages, then threaten job losses?

“Just hysterical ranting.”

However, another follower supported Femi and said: “Femi, I love you and you do an amazing job.

“We now need to bring people together though.

“They lied to us all, we need to bring leavers and remainers together in the mutual understanding that we were all lied to by Boris Johnson etc.

“Only then can we get them out.”

Arch-remainer Femi reacted to this with a reply that said: “And there lies the issue, any coming together has to be based on a shared sense of humanity.

“If you or I had voted Brexit, we would be torn apart with guilt, screaming sorry, trying to reverse it, because of our humanity, let me know when you hear that from Brexiteers.”
