Their anger was sparked after anti-Brexit campaigner A C Grayling unveiled a plot for Britain to rejoin the European Union by 2030. He tweeted: “We will be back in the EU in less than 10 years.
“Here’s how: electoral reform, through progressive alliance for next election.
“A reformed parliament with LDs (Lib Dems) & Greens in the coalition will be receptive to another say on EU membership.
“We will win that referendum conclusively.”
Others express their anger at comments from prominent members of the UK’s food industry – who have blamed Brexit for current shortages.

A third said: “Speak for yourself. I don’t buy EU food anyway , scrapings from the abattoir floor disguised as burgers. YUK!
“There is no shortage of food, I have been to three supermarkets in the last week, Morrisons, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s and I didn’t see any gaps on the shelves.”
Meanwhile a fourth pointed out: “Funny how all these people don’t all move back to one of the 27 failing nations within the EU27.
“Most of these people are from the EU27, living and benefiting from the UK economy and trying to undermine us from within. Stay strong, keep reversing the EU laws.”
Many in the hospitality and food industry have blamed Brexit for recent staff shortages.
Avara Foods, one of Britain’s largest poultry producers, said it was responsible for problems over “recruitment and filling vacancies”.
A spokesman even claimed that the UK workforce has been “severely depleted as a result of Brexit; this is causing stress on UK supply chains in multiple sectors”.
The company added: “We’re monitoring the situation closely and are putting in place measures to mitigate the strain on our supply chain, but this can only go so far.”
A Government spokesperson said: “We have well-established ways of working with the food sector and are working closely with them to ensure businesses have the labour they need.
“We are looking at ways to help the sector recruit more domestic labour and invest in automation in order to reduce the reliance on migrant workers coming into the UK.”
