Speaking on the BBC Radio 5 Emma Barnett Show, Jonathan Bullock standing as an MEP for the Brexit Party at the upcoming European elections claimed his party was receiving an “amazing” response on the campaign trail across the country. The Brexiteer said Leavers across the UK were angry at how the main political parties have failed to deliver on their promise to implement the 2016 Brexit referendum result. He said: “People out on the street are angry. The Leave side has been remarkably quiet over the last three years thinking this would be implemented.
“We were in Chesterfield a Labour heartland where former Labour people were cheering Annunziata Rees-Mogg, posing for selfies with her because they were saying ‘Thank you’.
“Yesterday, we were in Broxtowe and people again were queueing to tell us that ‘unfortunately Anna, you let us down there’.”
But as he broke the news that her constituents told him Anna Soubry had let them down, the Change UK MP blasted in disbelief: “Queueing up? Queuing up?”
Mr Bullock replied: “Yes, I’ve got photos of this and it’s absolutely amazing that people there are saying that you’ve let us down, the politicians have let us down.
“We voted three years ago to leave and we must enact that.”
The Brexit Party, which has stormed ahead in the polls for the European Parliament elections, just weeks after its inception.
Leading the party, Nigel Farage has accused MPs of “betraying” the result of the 2016 referendum by frustrating Brexit and is pushing to leave the bloc with no deal as soon as possible.
The party is currently in second place in Scotland according to a new YouGov poll, in a dramatic blow to Nicola Sturgeon’s claim that Scots oppose Brexit.
The anti-EU party is polling at 14 percent in Scotland according to the YouGov poll, after building its base from nothing in just a few months.
The nationalist SNP are in the lead on 28 percent. Both figures increase significantly when those who say they will not vote are excluded.
This puts the Brexit Party significantly ahead of Labour, Liberal Democrats and Conservatives.
The Conservatives only have 4 percent support in Scotland according to the poll, conducted earlier this month on May 12th.
Nationally, including those who won’t vote, the Brexit Party is in the lead on 22 percent of the vote. Labour looks set to take 11 percent of the vote whilst the Tories are on 7 percent.
