Twitter lampoons Jeremy Corbyn for 'fight starts now' Brexit tweet

Twitter mocks Jeremy Corbyn for 'fight starts now' tweet

Thursday, February 9, 2017

It's fair to say Jeremy Corbyn had a mixed day yesterday.

The Leader of the Opposition turned in an excellent performance at Prime Minister's Questions, but was then pilloried when the Article 50 bill passed without any of his promised amendments.

Undaunted, he used Twitter to sound a note of defiance, saying the "real fight starts now" to ensure a Brexit that works for Britain.

Many praised Corbyn for his rallying cry, but others weren't so sure. In fact scores of people indundated Twitter with messages of derision, suggesting the real fight has already been and gone.

The meme and GIF brigade left no stone unturned in their search for amusing visual metaphors, harnessing everything from The IT Crowd to Titanic in their multimedia medley.
