The group who go by the name ‘Led By Donkeys’ set up the rival website marchtoleave.co.uk and went on a scathing attack on the former UKIP leader. The anti-Brexit campaigners mock the journey of the Brexiteers and re-direct the route from Brussels to Ramsgate, the constituency where Mr Farage stood and failed in the general election in 2005 and 2015. The group state: “This historic march is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to come together and rub shoulders with the Brexit elite before they flee Britain.
“At the front of this extraordinary procession will be Nigel Farage, who planted his flag firmly in foreign soil when he declared: ‘If Brexit is a disaster I will go and live abroad, I’ll go and live somewhere else’.”
It added: “Our marchers will be walking from Bexhill to Ramsgate via the various constituencies where Nigel failed to wholly overwhelm the total vote count of the eventual winning candidate. Upon his arrival in Ramsgate he will emigrate. Hundreds of people will cheer him along the way.”
This weekend Mr Farage will lead the 277-mile march across the length of England in protest at the Government’s handling of Brexit, where he accused Whitehall of “betraying the British people”.
The frustrated Brexiteer has decided to take a stand and fight for the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the European Union in a 14-day rally from Sunderland to London.
The march will commence in the city which was the first to declare its result of the 2016 referendum on Saturday March 16, and end in Westminster on the night Britain is scheduled to officially leave the European Union on March 29.
The route will go through Hartlepool, Leicester, Wellingborough and Aylesbury on its way to the capital.
Mr Farage said: “The Westminster elite are in the process of betraying the British people over Brexit.
“All of us who want Britain to be a great country once again accept that we must be prepared to stand up for what we believe in and fight for our independence.”
Meanwhile the government has confirmed the vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal will go ahead tomorrow.
Tonight the Prime Minister has set off for Strasbourg for last-minute Brexit talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker with reports of a breakthrough over the controversial Irish backstop within sight.
