As Labour and Tory MPs scramble to vote on a set of Brexit options with less than two weeks to go until the first deadline, Remain campaigners have been putting billboards of past comments, tweets and statements made by prominent Brexiteers in order to highlight contradictory statements they have made in the past.

The advertising billboard campaign is headed by anti-Brexit group Led By Donkeys.

The funny group was started by four dads who want to “shine light on the forgotten lies of our leaders” using their own words.

One of their earliest billboards was a giant photo of a Theresa May tweet from 25 April 2016, before the EU referendum. It said:

I believe it is clearly in our national interest to remain a member of the European Union.

Similar billboards have been cropping up across the UK.

Here are the best ones:

1. Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, London

2. Andover, Hampshire

3. St Mary's Way, Stockport

4. Harrow-on-the-Hill, London

5. Christchurch, Dorset

6. Oldham Road, Middleton

7. Stoke-on-Trent

8. Westminster Bridge Road, London

9. Rotherham

10. Prince William Road, Lisburn

11. Trinity Way, West Bromwich

12. West Quay Retail Park, Southampton

13. Park Road McDonald's, Halesowen

14. Batley Mill, Batley

15. St. James Hospital, Leeds

16. Shipley Airedale Road, Bradford

17. Finchley Road, London

18. Wick Road, London

Labour and Conservative MPs have wrestled control of the Brexit process from Theresa May and are set to vote on a number of Brexit options laid out before them.

Jeremy Corbyn will order his MPs to support Labour’s Brexit plan, and proposals for a fresh Brexit referendum and a customs union with the EU, though they will be able to vote with the conscience on other options. Theresa May is expected to allow Tory MPs a free vote throughout the ”indicative votes” process, although cabinet ministers will abstain.
