There were some hilariously rude placards on show at the Unite for Europe march

By Kameron Virk

Including a classic “your mum” joke.

Everyone loves a placard, and boy do we have a treat for you.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of London to protest about Brexit on the day that marks the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, which created the path towards the European Union we have now.

The Brexit topic clearly got people’s creative juices flowing, because there were some brilliant – and brilliantly rude – signs on show. Take this one, for example.

Or this one.

At one point, there were even condoms.

It was a theme a few people touched on…

Boris Johnson made an appearance, on a painting by artist Kaya Mar.

And Theresa May’s face made more than one.

Elsewhere, people were getting to the heart of the issue.

Between 25,000 and 100,000 demonstrators attended the event, calling for Britain to remain in the European Union, which took place just a few days before the Prime Minister will trigger Article 50, beginning the exit process.

And one thing is certain: these protesters don’t think we’re in for an easy ride.
