Brexit secretary Dominic Raab has blocked two anti-Brexit groups on Twitter after a photograph emerged of him with a campaigner wearing a sign saying 'he has no idea what he's doing.'
Raab has previously styled himself as a free speech champion, hitting out at the culture of offence in the United Kingdom, and claiming in an interview that 'we're seeing a salami slicing of free speech.'
The photograph was taken by a young campaigner from the anti-Brexit group Our Future, Our Choice and has been widely shared on social media.

'Young people and students across the country are legitimately concerned about their future's because of the disaster that is Brexit,' Brooks explained. 'We were always told that young people should try and engage more in politics and debate, but obviously the Brexit secretary doesn't want that to happen.'
He added: 'He and the other Brexit elites like Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson would rather ignore the fact that the Brexit being delivered is nothing like what was promised two years ago than engage young people in their futures.'
Another activist tweeted: 'You might not like listening to @OFOCBrexit or our friends @FFSake_ but it's pretty clear you can't keep hiding from us...'
