The passionate pensioner claimed Mrs May’s decision to call a snap general election was the right move.
Speaking on Sky News from Nuneaton, a long-term Labour stronghold, the jovial man told presenter Kay Burley: “She’s quite right to put it to the country.
“She’s always been accused of being unelected so that should scotch all that argument now, so we can have a bit of a scrap.”
She’s quite right to put it to the country bearing in mind all the Brexit pressures
Asked by Burley if people had had enough of voting, he replied: “It seems the order of the day quite honestly. Hopefully we can better the Scottish problem as well at the same time.
“I was anti-Brexit but I’m one of those who says ‘well let’s get on with it’.”
Stating he was over the Brexit result, he added he was a “true blue” and would be voting for the Tories in the general election.
Minutes after the Prime Minister announced her bid for a June 8 election, it emerged the move was a bid to take on the SNP and end distracting demands for the so-called IndyRef2.
It is understood that Ruth Davidson, the Scottish Conservative Leader, personally helped persuade Mrs May that she could cause real damage to Nicola Sturgeon north of the border by calling a snap poll and making it a “referendum on another referendum”.
If the SNP loses seats in Westminster it would seriously undermine Miss Sturgeon’s claim to have a mandate to run Scotland, where her party has no overall majority.
