Christoph Waltz has some strong opinions about Nigel Farage’s resignation as the leader of the U.K. Independence Party, which was announced on Monday following the recent vote that decided the British exit from the European Union, referred to as “Brexit.”

The actor (The Legend of Tarzan, Inglourious Basterds) shared his thoughts in a Sky News video posted to Twitter.

“Well, I mean, of course the head rat would leave the sinking ship,” Waltz said. “It’s inevitable, you know. They tried to dress it up as a heroic exit — no, it’s conceding defeat. It’s putting the tail between their legs and as rats do, leave the sinking ship, leave the mess for others to clean up and retreat into some profitable other business. That shows you how despicable these people are that they can’t even stand up for what they caused.”

When asked to confirm that he’s against Brexit, Waltz responded, “Oh, 100 percent. A little too emotionally because I can’t comprehend the abysmal stupidity.”
