John Cleese the former Monty Python and Faulty Towers star has openly criticised Londoners for voting to remain in the EU.
Last year the 79-year old said he was moving to the Caribbean as he is “disappointed” with Britain and accused the Capital for not being English enough.
He tweeted, “Some years ago I opined that London was not really an English city any more. Since then, virtually all my friends from abroad have confirmed my observation So there must be some truth in it…
“I note also that London was the UK city that voted most strongly to remain in the EU.”
Caitlin Moran a writer responded to Cleese’s twitter post. Moran said, “I hope there’s a old Nevisian comedian ready to moan about how Charlestown won’t “really be a Nevisian town any more.”
Last year Cleese said he moving to Nevis as he is disappointed in the actions of “rightwing governments” and said the debate around Brexit is “one of the most depressing things about this country.”
Cleese said to BBC2’s Newsnight, I just thought to myself: ‘Right I’ll just give up and try somewhere else.'”
He described Nevis as “It’s one of the nicest islands I’ve ever been on. The relationship between the races is absolutely superb. The people there are really kind.”
