A loaded Brexit poll posted on the pro-Leave page Britain Bites Back went horribly wrong yesterday after the vast majority of respondents rallied behind a so-called “traitor” option.
The poll, which was created on Sunday afternoon, asked Facebook users who they are voting for in the European Elections – UKIP or Brexit or for “Remain like a traitor”.
“Both UKIP and the Brexit party should get our vote” in the elections, the post read, but the results went seriously awry when the latter option received 92 per cent of the vote.
The poll has garnered some 30,000 responses so far as well as a plethora of comical responses.
Ness Kezia Watson said “Traitors of the UK unite” as support rallied for Remain, while others pointed to the illiteracy of the post, which spelt traitor as ‘trator’.
Alan Walker posted that he was “definitely a trator,” adding that he is probably the “tratorist of the trators”.
And Fiona Owen added: “I’m voting Remain – of course. I’ve just done your poll, in fact. Going well, isn’t it? 91% of us voting Remain like a “trator”, whatever that is.”
