May's new Chief of Staff: Remainer who called Farage a "bigot" and "racist"

Following the departure of her two main advisers Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, Theresa May has today appointed Gavin Barwell as her new right-hand man.

Barwell lost his Croydon Central seat at the election, but has effectively been promoted.

The appointment is a hugely controversial one for those of us who believe in Brexit Britain. Barwell wanted the UK to Remain inside the European Union and branded Nigel Farage a “bigot” and a “racist” who “hates modern Britain” in the run up to the EU referendum.

Speaking to Westmonster, Nigel Farage said: “This is the worst possible start. Gavin Barwell is a staunch Remainer who abuses those who want to control immigration.”

Theresa May’s prospects as a zombie Prime Minister don’t look any more promising after this latest debacle.
