Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has been a vocal critic of Brexit and, with the March 29, 2019 date that Britian is scheduled to leave the EU looming ahead with no deal in place, he’s again taken to Twitter to address British Prime Minister Theresa May. “Nobody voted for you to bring into question the lives of millions of Europeans in this country as a bargaining tool, in so doing causing immense distress and suffering, an action worthy of the early days of the Third Reich,” he wrote in the scathing note, which you can read in full below. “Fear is not a weapon to be used by a UK Prime Minister in the 21st century. Stop the bus…… now.”

Theresa May is scheduled to travel to Dublin to meet with her Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar and discuss Brexit negotiations today. She posted on Twitter, “I’m clear that I am going to deliver Brexit, I’m going to deliver it on time, that’s what I’m going to do for the British public – I’ll be negotiating hard in the coming days to do just that.”
