English-Australian actress Miriam Margolyes has turned the air blue on Australian breakfast television in anti-Brexit rant.
The Harry Potter star was asked for her opinion on Brexit on ABC’s News Breakfast show, and she did not mince her words.
She said: “I’m not allowed to say the words that spring to mind, because it is early in the morning, and people are tender in the morning... but I think it’s a load of...”
The host interjects: “You can say bollocks” to which the actress agreed.
She said: “Yes it’s bollocks!”
“It’s wrong and it’s based on ignorance, people were lied to, people didn’t tell the truth, particularly Boris Johnson. It is a disaster for England.”
Asked how it will end, Margolyes said that she expected the Brexit situation to rumble on for years to come.
She said: “I don’t think it’s going to end. I think it’s going to go on for years. We are wasting our resources and our time, and our focus, it’s absolute nonsense. It’s piffle.
“David Cameron - who was our prime minister - he should be boiled in oil. It was just a waste.”
Twitter users responded to Breakfast News’ social media post in praise of the rant.
