Remoaners Hijack Last Night of the Proms with EU Flags, Rishi Sunak Fights Back


Rishi Sunak, the UK's Chancellor of the Exchequer, has responded to the controversy surrounding the Last Night of the Proms, where pro-EU activists waved European Union flags during the performance. The Prime Minister's spokesman defended the Brexit decision by highlighting the country's achievements since leaving the EU.

Bafflement at EU Flags

During last week's Royal Albert Hall performance, dozens of EU flags were waved by audience members, which reportedly puzzled Rishi Sunak. Downing Street stated that the Prime Minister is a proud Brexit supporter, and he was promoting the UK's interests in India, including discussions for a free trade deal.

Union Jack Prominence

Downing Street emphasized that Brexit has brought the Union Jack to the forefront of international affairs. The spokesman mentioned examples like BMW, TATA, and the CPTPP trade agreement as direct benefits of Brexit. They believe that this prominence is proof of the UK's global influence.

Brexiteers Criticize BBC

Other prominent supporters of Brexit joined the discussion and criticized the BBC for broadcasting the political statement made by waving EU flags during the Last Night of the Proms. Nile Gardiner, a former aide to Margaret Thatcher, highlighted the irony in singing "Rule Britannia" while waving EU flags, as the song symbolizes freedom, sovereignty, and self-determination which he believes are absent in the EU. Former Tory MP Harvey Proctor called for an investigation into how so many EU flags were present at the event.

Thank EU For The Music

The campaign group Thank EU For The Music took credit for organizing the EU flag stunt. In an open letter to BBC boss Tim Davie, they explained that they brought tens of thousands of free European flags to the Royal Albert Hall to show solidarity with musicians who feel the negative impact of the UK's isolation from Europe.
