John Cleese Leaving Britain in Protest of ‘awful’ Brexit vote

John Cleese announces he is leaving Britain in protest of ‘awful’ Brexit vote for paradise Caribbean island

Monty Python comic John Cleese says he is moving to the Caribbean in November in protest of the “awful” debate on Brexit.

The 78-year-old told Two’s Newsnight that the standard of debate around Brexit had been awful, but that his “particular beef” was with the “lying and triviality” of British newspapers.

He plans to relocate to the “gorgeous” island of Nevis which has a population of just 11,000 in the autumn.

“I’m leaving in November. I actually am leaving. I am making arrangements now,” said the long-time Liberal Democrat supporter. “I am so disappointed with so much about this country at the moment and I just think so much of this country is disappointing.”

He expressed his frustration that both proportional representation and the second phase of the Leveson inquiry into press standards had been “kicked out by right wing governments”, adding: “I just thought to myself: ‘Right I’ll just give up and try somewhere else.’”

Cleese, who backed leave in the 2016 EU referendum, went on to brand the standard of debate around Brexit “one of the most depressing things about this country”.

“There were dreadful lies on the right about all the money that would come into the National Health Service,” he said. On the other hand, remainers such as David Cameron and George Osborne used scare tactics, he said.

“Very few people have any idea of what’s actually going to happen. Why’s everyone so passionate when they can’t possibly know what the outcome is?” he asked.

He said he now plans to move to Nevis after spending time there already this year.

“I’m going to Nevis in the Caribbean where I spent January and February where it’s gorgeous. My wife loves it,” he said.

“The Nevis newspaper is very good and I love it. It’s one of the nicest islands I’ve ever been on.

“Relationships between the races is absolutely superb, the people there are really kind. The children and adults are extraordinarily well educated and the weather is good.”

The comedian also said that “George W Bush voters” of the mid-West and south of America have “no sense of irony”. Asked if he meant that they were a “bit thicker”, he replied: “Yes.”
