A furious backlash has been sparked after a staunch rejoiner said that Brexit was an “epic lie made by liars.”
The Prime Minister has previously said that the UK will flourish after Brexit, but Anthony Grayling MBE said Brexit is “the lie that produces lies and more lies and divides, diminishes and impoverishes out country.”
Grayling was a Professor of Philosophy at Birbeck College, University of London and was a fellow at the World Economic Forum for several years.
Grayling wrote on Twitter in a furious attack that “Brexit. The lie that produces lies and more lies and divides, diminishes and impoverishes our country.
“Own goal after own goal in embarrassing shameful succession.
“Brexit. An epic lie made by liars.”
He said in another tweet that, “Johnson doesn’t just lie he shouts his lies.
“Watch & wince: this is the drunkwit putatively at the wheel:”

In support of Grayling a person tweeted, “Brexit has divided the UK. That is clear.
“It’s a massive own goal. Brexit must be reversed.”
A second person wrote, “This Brexit debacle is really ramping up now and the frightening thing about it is the speed of this unravelling.
“Also the total unpredictability of the next few years will only exacerbate the general malaise.
“England feels more and more like a prison.”
The question is why? Why did Boris back it?
“Was it just to become PM? And why did so many people fall for the lies.”
