The Leave.EU Twitter account has responded to Emmanuel Macron’s victory in the French presidential election with a series of controversial tweets.
As projections suggested the centrist had comfortably defeated far-right Marine Le Pen, the campaign group, backed by Ukip funder Arron Banks and former leader Nigel Farage, tweeted: “RIP France.”
It later posted a picture of a Second World War-era front page reading “France Surrenders” along with a caption reading: “The French rolled over in 1940. This time they’ve saved Germany the fuel and bullets.”
