Arch Brexiteer Nigel Farage has been trolled by his own hypocritical comments about Brexit, which have been printed on to beer mats and left at his table in the European parliament.

It is the latest protest from the Led By Donkeys team, following the success of its billboard campaign around the country.

With the help of Labour MEP Richard Corbett the mats have been placed on Nigel Farage’s table at the European parliament ready for when he next nips to the local boozer.

It includes the remark: “If Brexit is a disaster, I will go and live abroad, I’ll go and live somewhere else.”

Campaigners have been so impressed with the pint-sized protests they want their own to take to Wetherspoon’s pubs where its Brexiteer owner has unveiled pro-Brexit beermats.
