The country’s capital Kabul descended into chaos this evening as Taliban fighters took much of the city without firing a shot in anger. It comes just weeks after foreign security forces – most notably American and British troops – stopped propping up the Afghan regime following two decades of support.
Many commentators slammed the British and American governments for washing their hands of the country and deserting the Afghan nationals who tried to bring in stability.
But only unapologetic Europhiles stooped so low as to compare it with Brexit.
One Remainer responded to a tweet by GB News host Alastair Stewart about the country’s rapid descent into chaos.
Mr Stewart posted a quote from former soldier and Tory MP Tom Tugendhat who said: “(The situation in Afghanistan is) the biggest foreign policy failure since Suez: it is a rout.

Their comment was quickly picked upon by others, who rightly slammed the ridiculous statement.
One person wrote: “Imagine actually somehow comparing this to Brexit. When will Remoaners stop?”
Another joked: “(Pro-EU) loons bring Brexit into every debate.”
The Western-backed regime’s President Ashraf Ghani fled Kabul last night – effectively ceding power to the radical Islamist group.
Taliban soldiers were later pictured in the Presidential Palace and said they will soon declare the country the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
Despite foreign forces being in Afghanistan since shortly after the 9/11 attacks in 2001 – the country’s government collapsed unaided within a matter of weeks.
This has caused much anger and embarrassment in the West – after it spent billions of pounds and gave the lives of countless service personnel with the aim of bringing peace to the war-torn nation.
As recently as last month, US President Joe Biden vowed that there was no way the Taliban would overrun the country.
But that appears to have been exactly what has happened – leaving the country at the mercy of the Taliban which could turn it once again into a pariah state.
