Labour Party members have been taking the scissors to their membership cards and posting them to social media after the party leadership endorsed a pro-Brexit manifesto.
Twitter user Alastair Macphail posted a picture of his chopped-up card saying: “I'm done! Can't take this gaslighting any more,” and copied the Labour Party in.
Others soon joined in.
“Bye Felicia (Jeremy)”, said Twitter user Dave Nash, posting a video of his membership card going into a shredder.
Jeremy Corbyn has faced protests since the party's ruling National Executive Committee agreed to a pro-Brexit manifesto.

MP Jess Phillips predicted: “I think people who voted Remain and voted Labour will not vote Labour again.”
After the news of the manifesto broke, Twitter user Beverley Davies said: “Just cancelled my direct debit. Had enough after today.
“I have supported Labour all my life but not now.”
