Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock aired his views on Brexit during his post-match press conference following the 0-0 draw at home to Huddersfield Town.
It started with Warnock brushing off suggestions that Britain’s exit from the European Union would make it harder for for Premier League clubs to sign players:
I think once the country knows what they’re doing, it will be straightforward [to make signings].
Any transfer window is difficult for me, not just this one.
He then continued on the subject of Brexit and clarified his own stance on the issue, saying:
I don’t know why politicians don’t do what the country wants, if I’m honest.
They had a referendum and now we see different politicians and everyone else trying to put their foot in it.
Why did we have a referendum in the first bloody place?
I can’t wait to get out of it, if I’m honest. I think we’ll be far better out of the bloody thing. In every aspect. Football-wise as well, absolutely.
To hell with the rest of the world.
With little room for doubt on the Cardiff boss’s own perspective, these were the best Neil Warnock Brexit jokes:

Thank fuck someone *finally* thought of asking Neil Warnock about this. It’s frankly ludicrous it took this long to do. https://t.co/5JUYsdK06L

I personally only listen to Neil Warnock for his nuanced views on foreign policy

Only reason Neil Warnock is pro brexit is because once we leave he might be brought in for Theresa May for the rest of the season to try and keep the UK up.

Neil Warnock says to hell not only with the EU but “the rest of the world” as well. Fresh thinking from the Cardiff manager: WTO minus minus. pic.twitter.com/YS4wDTL9Ki

It’s absolutely peak Neil Warnock that he couldn’t think of a more high profile time to launch a Brexit rant than after a goalless home draw against Huddersfield.

– Piers Morgan hates vegan sausage rolls
– Neil Warnock is pro-Brexit
– Richard Keys supports Mike Ashley
If we can get Sam Allardyce to talk about "Snowflakes" we'll have ourselves a lovely Yer Da quartet.

Klopp on Brexit: History has always shown that when we stay together we can sort out problems. When we split then we start fighting. There was not one time in history where division creates success.
Warnock on Brexit: To hell with the rest of the world.

To be fair, Neil Warnock's already done a cracking job of keeping Cardiff City out of Europe. #NeilWarnock

‘After my excellent analysis last night I have been asked to form a government by the Queen (didn’t realise she was from Wigan) that will deliver a hard Brexit. Sam Allardyce and Sammy Lee will become joint-Chancellors and Graeme Souness will be foreign secretary.‘ pic.twitter.com/bF4noLwWe0
