NIGEL Farage has been booed by Ukip supporters at the Brexit Betrayal march in central London today.
Thousands of people marched in the pro-Brexit rally organised by Ukip at the same time as a rival opposition demonstration took place. Protesters carried signs, banners and flags as they took to the streets of the capital to call for Brexit.
Controversial activist Tommy Robinson, also known as Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, took to the stage to address anti-EU protesters who marched to the Houses of Parliament.
But according to LBC reporter Matthew Thompson, crowds booed when Mr Robinson mentioned former Ukip leader Mr Farage.
Mr Thompson tweeted: “Tommy Robinson thanks @Nigel_Farage. Who gets a subdued chorus of boos. At a UKIP protest. Who’d have written that script? Through the looking glass.”
It comes after Mr Farage announced his decision to leave Ukip this week, insisting he did not “recognise” the party anymore after its leader Gerard Batten appointed Mr Robinson as an adviser.
The pro-Brexit protesters also booed when Mr Batten mentioned Prime Minister Theresa May.
Mr Batten added: "If Parliament does not take Britain out of the European Union it will be the biggest constitutional crisis since the English Civil War.
"In 1642 the king put himself in opposition to parliament. Parliament won and the king lost his head.
