Nigel Farage has continued his charmless offensive by posting a picture containing a number of Union Flags accompanied by the words, “Share this photo and wind a Remainer up.”
The image is from outside of the Houses of Parliament where the flags have been hung to commemorate Monday's Queen Speech, so it's hardly a thing that we'll be seeing on a regular basis.
Anyway, Farage took this opportunity to try and troll a few remainers who might have been easily annoyed at this image, for whatever reason.
