Brexit campaign baffled by its appeal to people with tinfoil hats

BREXIT campaigners are puzzled as to why the movement is attracting so many lunatic conspiracy theorists.

As David Icke gave his backing to the campaign, Eurosceptic organisations confirmed that many of their supporters looked odd and carried ‘documents’ around in a plastic shopping bag.

Tom Booker, a coordinator for the Brexit movement, said: “All we want is for Britain to leave Europe and negotiate its own trade agreements. And for Brussels to stop controlling our minds with special Euro-rays.

“Yet for some reason, this seems to attract all kinds of weirdos.”

He added: “Why can’t we get someone sensible like David Attenborough or JK Rowling on our side? Surely they both realise deep down that Britain should take immediate control of India again.

“Instead, we get these horrid, off-putting Little Englanders who think that Brussels is tampering with our water supply. It’s nonsense, Brussels is using a special hypno-gas.”
