Brexit MEPs turned their back on the European anthem – the only 9 replies you need
Newly-elected Brexit Party MEPs turned up to the European Parliament in Strasbourg for the first time today.
And when they weren’t complaining about the commute – just imagine, a European Parliament in Europe – they came up with a cunning wheeze for when the European anthem, Ode to Joy, was played today.
They did this.

Just in case you can’t believe they can possibly have been this childish, here’s the video.
This is the kind of childish representation we’ll be getting from Brexit Party MEPs in the European Parliament… pic.twitter.com/7FIGsI89Y5

Bring me my arrows of desire.

If some overseas football fans did that to the English national anthem before a match, my guess is many of those same Brexit Party MEPs would be puce and apoplectic at the perceived lack of respect. https://t.co/O4OITKFd2z

Just bravo to every voter who put the kind of greedy, lazy and hypocritical fucking children in parliament who would do this kind of pathetic stunt in protest whilst happily picking up their paychecks. https://t.co/uNVA8R9Ds9

We are now officially the kind of country we used to laugh at on Eurotrash. Bring it on, Antoine de Caunes and Jean Paul Gaultier https://t.co/QXLT4kuPXz

Dear Entire World,
It’s beyond embarrassing, but please understand that these infantile pillocks do not represent us, and that we do not want Brexit to happen.
Everyone in the United Kingdom who isn’t a twat. https://t.co/lns0PBCQyA

David Baddiel spotted this.
Two of them are holding hands. They are actually thinking “We’re the resistance; we’re like the students in Tiananmen Square we are.” https://t.co/0rUitA514T
