Last Night of the Proms SABOTAGED by REMOANERS who politicise music event with EU flags

THE LAST Night of the Proms has been sabotaged by a horde of Remoaners who flooded the Royal Albert Hall with EU flags and burrets as part of an anti-Brexit protest.

The end of Britain’s world famous classical music festival wouldn’t be the same without its famously British traditions.

Each year, the audience within the Albert Hall mark the end of the festival by dressing up, joining in with rousing renditions of patriotic classics and waving the Union flag.

However, this year, at the most British of events, as the audience was hearing songs to commemorate the end of the First World War, more than 20,000 EU flags filled the concert hall.

The move was part of a protest against the impact that Brexit may have on orchestras.

The campaigners argue the end of free movement will make it harder and more expensive for musicians to tour.

But the abundance of circles with 12 gold stars sparked Twitter fury and a large number of Brexiteers expressed severe criticism towards the Remoaners.

One Twitter user said: “Somebody really should remind those people waving those infernal EU flags that Rule Britannia & Land of hope and glory are British Songs and have nothing to do with the EU, haven't they heard we don’t want their anthem or their flag anymore?”

A second one added: "Is there anything as weak, as petty or as demeaning to our nation as the waving of EU flags during Last Night of the Proms?
