If you’re not following actor Rob Delaney on Twitter, you really should be.

Seriously, do it now.

The Catastrophe creator and star is known for his political interventions. Let’s just say, he doesn’t hold back. Delaney is American, but became politically active in the UK after becoming inspired by the care his late son received from the National Health Service. Since his son passed away, he has been a vocal opponent of cuts to public services.

This time, Delaney has turned his sights to Brexit. In a brutal, yet poignant thread, he tries to get to the heart of why Brexit happened. Expressing his anger that people often compare Labour and the Tories, Delaney explained that cuts to public services have made people suffer, resulting in anger which led to the UK’s Brexit vote.

Whether you agree with his politics or not, Delaney's passion is a sight to behold.

Following the thread support flooded in from all corners of the internet.
