A new battlebus is gathering plenty of attention right now.

It is a bright yellow, says “bollocks to Brexit” and is urging us all to write to our MPs demanding a final say referendum.

The bus is the brain child of the EU Flag Mafia, whose “bollocks to Brexit” stickers have become an integral part of the anti-Brexit movement.

It launched today in Westminster and will be travelling the UK over the next few weeks up until Christmas.

The EU Flag Mafia campaigners are joined by Madeleina Kay, known as EU supergirl, who will be distributing copies of her new anti-Brexit booklet.

A group spokesman said: “We believe Brexit is NOT the democratic ‘will of the people’. Public opinion has shifted and most British people now want to reject Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, and stay in the European Union.

They added: “It’s time for British citizens to be bold and proud, and say: BOLLOCKS TO BREXIT!”

In October a businessman who erected a large sign with the same message was asked to remove it by planning officials.

The council denied they were trying to stifle freedom of speech, and instead were concerned the large poster had been erected without planning permission.
