The man who has campaigned against Brexit for 847 days outside Parliament appears to have finally admitted defeat in his bid to see the result of the referendum overturned.
Steve Bray has been a persistent thorn in the side of those attempting to produce outside broadcasts with his booming cries of “Stop Brexit”. Now, as a result of Boris Johnson’s victory, he’s standing down from his post.
Speaking to The Metro he said:
The fight goes on but our future campaigning will be about holding government to account and when the proverbial sh*t kicks in, we will look into how we can get back into the EU.
The 50-year-old grandfather funded the protest by selling off his coin collection. He did conclude on a vaguely positive note, adding:
There’s a tiny chance of staying in, so as long as we haven’t left, there’s still hope.
But will he stop his protests? Don't count on it.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Thursday, Bray confirmed that he would still be campaigning, especially for proportional representation but wouldn't be outside of parliament anymore much to the relief of MPs speaking on television.
