James O'Brien: The Leavers Have Legged It
James O'Brien on Andrea Leadsom's withdrawal: "The Leavers led us off a cliff, then legged it."
James O'Brien was left livid when Andrea Leadsom became the latest Leave campaigner to quit following their Brexit victory.
Ms Leadsom decided to withdraw from the Conservative Leadership contest following a weekend in which she had been criticised for comments that she would be a better Prime Minister than Theresa May because she has children.
That led to her standing down as a candidate, meaning that Theresa May is set to be the next Prime Minister of the UK.
It left James angry that none of the people who campaigned for Brexit will be around to take accountability.
Speaking on his LBC show, he said: "We voted to come out of the European Union because a bunch of people kept telling us it was undemocratic and unaccountable.
"And we've now got a Prime Minister who nobody voted for. Not one person.
"In terms of leaving the European Union, who are we going to hold accountable for that?
"Great work guys. Seriously, what a wonderful country to be part of.
"You lead us off a cliff and you disappear."
Earlier, before Ms Leadsom's resignation, James ridiculed the idea that she had claimed there were "black ops" working against her over the row on motherhood.
