I for one am delighted the Brexiters want to organise lots of celebratory things around 31 Jan.
I hope they go ahead and are well reported (and recorded).
Just to make absolutely sure the future knows who the guilty parties were….

I'm sure The Brexit Party Brexit Party will be as popular as their Brexit March.
Hope it goes ahead.
The sad sight of a few angry confused people in a cold, dark & damp parliament sq. looking embarrassed waving a flag will be perfect image of Brexit.

Twitter user Brendon Hope came up with a suggestion, should Farage be looking for a name for the gathering.

That might also double as a sign for the buffet.
