Protest van displays historic tweets by Leave.EU
A 'Remainers' protest van displaying historic tweets by Leave.EU has been parked outside the campaign group's headquarters in Bristol today (Mon).
Tweets shown on its digital screen include the October 2016 post: "Project Fear claims Nissan would scale back UK operation could not have been further from the truth." A Tweet posted by Nigel Farage in October 2018 is also displayed which says "Nissan is not going anywhere" - followed by a Tweet posted yesterday (Sun) by Reuters which reads "Nissan scraps plan to build new X-Trail model in Britain." It also includes a post by Farage from May 2018 which says: "I never said it would be a huge success #Brexit".
In 2016, Nissan said it would build its new X-Trail in Sunderland after "assurances" from the UK government - but they scrapped those plans amid Brexit uncertainty.
