All brainstorming sessions have dud ideas, with most of them never seeing the light of day.
However, Bulgarian MEP Ilhan Kyuchyuk, has clearly exhausted all the good options and has now taken to emailing wannabe Brexit-protesters, offering them training from a professional coach.
“Do you want to support the EU and help fight Brexit? Here is the chance to do that. We need energetic pro-Europeans ready to perform a flash mob dance at lunchtime on 28 June around Schuman and willing to spend a few hours practising. We also need volunteers to help with logistics, hold banners and distribute leaflets. Let’s put a bit of fun, rhythm and imagination into fighting Brexit and support the campaign for a People’s Vote on the Deal.”
“What do you need to do?… Train with our professional coach for three or four once-weekly evening sessions in June. We’ll let you know the details of times and places for training when these are finalised.”
Tory MEP David Campbell Bannerman said:
“Collusion between the EU and Remoaner groups is a serious matter, but this shows it is getting plain silly. A flash mob to support a Second Referendum is a good metaphor: like Soros’s campaign, it will be a lot of coordinated excitement & noise for a few minutes, then completely disappear.”
