Whilst the Brexit Party MEPs turned their backs during the European Anthem at the EP’s opening session, the Lib Dems donned bright yellow ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ t shirts. So basically, it doesn’t matter what your political persuasion is: Brits abroad being awful is the one thing that unites us all.

Interesting fact that few people will know: the European Anthem is actually the anthem of the Council of Europe, who gave permission to the EU to use it.

Members of the Council of Europe include basically every European nation with the exception of Belarus.
