A Brexiteer has posted pictures of Liverpool’s Champions League parade in 2005 in a bid to convince people of the scale of this week’s March to Leave protest.
Brendon Hope used a picture taken outside St George’s Hall in Liverpool after The Reds won the prestigious European cup as evidence that “the whole of London turned up to welcome the arrival of the March to Leave”.
The tweet, which has garnered tens of thousands of interactions, goads users into sharing by saying the “Remoaners want this picture taken down” so “please don’t retweet it”.
Despite being called out by numerous Twitter users the tweet still hasn’t been removed by administrators.
Indeed, Hope has since posted a sceenshot to safeguard it getting removed.
He has also claimed the tweet could be parody, even though there is scant evidence of satirical content elsewhere on his timeline.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
