“They want to stop the Brexit or make it is minimal as possible.”
Speaking about immigration, Mr Galloway also called for Commonwealth migrants to be given priority.
He insisted he was not "against immigration" but that he has "always felt that we owed a far bigger debt of gratitude to the countries of our own commonwealth, who stood with us in our hour of need”.
He added: “So it should be those people who are given priority in the event of any migrant restrictions.”
Mr Galloway blasted EU migration for being “bad” for the British working class.
He said he believed the free movement of labour is actually "free movement of central and east European labour, and is bad for the British working class and bad therefore for British society.”
He added: “It puts pressure on wages, it drives down conditions, it cuts employment opportunities."
