(PresidentialHill.com)- Nile Gardiner, a foreign policy analyst and a former aide to legendary British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, recently hit out at far-left United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for trying to undermine the will of the British people and purposely sabotage Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
The British people voted to leave the European Union in 2016, prompting British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to successfully negotiate his country’s withdrawal from the controversial economic and political bloc.
In a Twitter thread, Gardiner pointed to comments by Speaker Pelosi during a St. Patrick’s Day dinner in Washington D.C. During the event, Pelosi very publicly sided with the Republic of Ireland over the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland in what appeared to be a veiled threat.
Pelosi said that Brexit negotiations, which are still ongoing even after the United Kingdom left the EU, should not undermine the peace process in Northern Ireland – even though that peace process is not under threat.
“@SpeakerPelosi needs to stop lecturing the British people on Brexit policy, issuing menacing threats against a US/UK trade deal, and undermining the Special Relationship,” Gardiner wrote.

“It is extraordinary that Speaker of US House of Representatives spends a great deal of time/energy threatening America’s closest friend/ally Great Britain. This is Joe Biden’s party, doing all it can to undermine Brexit/democratic will of British people,” Gardiner said in a follow-up tweet.
It’s a good point. Why would the Speaker of the House go to such an extent to rubbish the relationship between the US and the UK? Just to appease anti-British Irish politicians?
