Westminster’s ‘Stop Brexit Guy’ brings his one-man protest to Brussels

Britain’s unrelenting “Stop Brexit Guy” brought his daily protest movement to Brussels, drawing dozens to an event held in front of the European Parliament.

A small crowd of Europhiles and reporters gathered around Steve Bray as he stood on the esplanade outside the parliament’s Altero Spinelli building, brandishing his familiar double-sided, anti-Brexit placards.

Known as “Mr Stop Brexit” or the “Stop Brexit Guy,” Bray rose to notoriety for his daily protests against Brexit outside Westminster, during which he also disrupted numerous live TV interviews.

“I came to Brussels just to visit this parliament,” Bray said, carrying a bundle of protest signs reading “lead with facts not leave with lies,” and “I’m still here because I still care.”

Held just over a week before the exit date on 31 January, Bray’s small protest still drew British EU supporters to the event, come dressed in EU-coloured garments and waving EU and UK flags together.

Wearing his trademark blue and yellow top-hat adorned with hatband reading “Why Brexit?”, Bray spoke with other demonstrators in front of the parliament, with many soliciting him for a photo.
