Anti-Brexit campaigners squat on Nigel Farage’s new party website

- Jacob Rees-Mogg's sister to stand for new party

Anti-Brexit campaigners have squatted on Nigel Farage's new party website.

Mr Farage failed to register thebrexitparty.com domain name, so quick-thinking activists took it over as the No Brexit Party.

Campaigner group Led By Donkeys posted the takeover on Twitter with the message: "Big day ahead for Nigel Farage and his new Brexit Party as he launches his European election campaign.

"Shame he forgot to register the website."

The page now has a banner message saying "Nigel Farage Doesn't Represent Britain" and a message blaming him for the Brexit crisis and urging people to register to vote against him.

The page says: "Nigel Farage wants to register a huge victory in the European elections, but he can't even register his own website.

"Seven times he's failed to get elected to Westminster. But he did get himself a seat in the European Parliament because at the time hardly any of us cared. Well we do now.

"Nobody is more responsible than Farage for the diminished state of our nation.

"Now he's seeking to exploit the turmoil he himself created to get re-elected to Brussels on the 23rd May – Register to vote by May 7th to stop him."
