The Brexit Party has taken to Twitter to advertise the position of IT technician - only to be trolled by Remainers.
In a tweet it sent to its 165,000 Twitter followers it announced: "The Brexit Party is hiring! We are looking for an IT technician - first line support.
It continued to explain to send over a CV and cover letter to the organisation, with the subject line as "IT application."
But unlike a usual job advertisement on social media, this one provoked hilarity from Remainers who did not take the message seriously.
There were plenty of questions.

"How much does it cost to apply?" quipped Mike Marshall.
Steve Avison responded: "£499.99 per week so you don't have to declare where it comes from."

Kevin Arscott wrote: "You don't need to be able or qualified to do the job, but feel free to make undeliverable promises to the Brexit Party about what a huge success you really believe you could make of the role."
Some went as far as sending in an actual CV to the Brexit Party.
Our Future Our Choice's Femi Oluwole wrote in his covering letter why he was the ideal candidate.
"I believe that if it's on the internet, it's automatically true...
"I have zero morality, so I have no problem using invasive advertise techniques...
He adds: "Unlike the majority of your party, my world view isn't stuck in the dark ages, so when my laptop turns on, I don't run from the room screaming 'DEMON! SAVE YOURSELVES!'."
