Ian Holloway has launched a passionate tirade against the United Kingdom government's handling of the Brexit crisis, insisting that the country must adopt a unified war-like attitude towards Europe.
New prime minister Boris Johnson has prorogued parliament and expelled 21 Conservative MPs, including 'Father of the House' Kenneth Clarke, in a bid to keep his promise of taking the UK out of Europe by October 31, deal or no deal.
In response, opposition MPs have voted in favour of a bill to make no deal legally impossible for Johnson ahead of an impending General Election.
Speaking to talkSPORT on the issue of Brexit, Holloway said: "Three years ago, whether we were right or wrong, we asked to get out.
"Why has it taken this long? Whatever you voted, our country is in a mess right now, so sort it out. All I'm seeing is selfish, selfish, selfish. For me, we're in a war. We're in a war with Europe. It needs to be almost a war situation where we have a coalition government to sort it out.
Holloway's last managerial post came at Queens Park Rangers, who he left in 2018 after 18 months in charge.
The 56-year-old gained notoriety back in 2010 when he took Blackpool to the Premier League, bringing some colour to the division through a display of attacking football and amusing press conferences.
