A group of around 4 Brexiteers visited parliament square during the early hours to replace all the EU flags displayed around the cameras with 34 Union flags outside parliament.
The Remainers subsequently arrived outside parliament at around 7.30am and began setting up their flags effectively triggering a ‘flag war’ between the two opposing sides.
David Ireland, one of the Brexiteer flag bearers said “People turn on the TV and see this entire wall covered in EU flags, some people want to be in the EU but there’s also some people who don’t want to be in the EU, so we’ve come along and done our flags.
‘What the Remain voters do is shun all the Leave campaigners into the irrelevant middle ground and dominate the TV space. ‘The narrative was this is the EU zone, we own this, but it seemed a little bit one-sided.’
