As Britons fill in their Census, Rejoin the EU – a campaign group devoted to dragging the UK back into the bloc – has urged followers on Facebook to claim their nationality as European rather than British. The group shared instructions on how to do this in the post.
But now Britons have hit back at the desperate attempt from Rejoiners to discredit the result of the 2016 Brexit referendum.
One Express.co.uk reader said: “If they feel that strongly about it, why don’t they just go live there?”
Someone else pointed out people in the UK are still European and said if the EU closed, people across the continent will still be European.
They said: “All UK people are European, it’s a continent.
“The EU quango is a political body with about half of European members.
“The EU quango is not Europe, you keep getting mixed up.
“If the EU closed tomorrow, all people from the continent will still be European.”
Another reader echoed: “Europe is not a nation.
“Typical dumb Remainers.”
A fourth person said: “The EU is NOT a country therefore nationality does not exist.
“European is just a term not a status of nationality.
“Just shows how thick these Rejoiners are.”

Someone else said those who put it on their census form should be fined for providing false information.
They said: “As everyone knows ‘European’ is not a nationality, so anyone that declares that on their census submission should be fined for deliberately recording false information.”
A Brexiteer wrote how they still understand they are “European” and said the protest was “futile and childish”.
Someone else said: “Proof as if any were needed, that these people are clueless and don’t even know what they’re protesting against.
“I’m European and proud of it.
“But what on Earth has that got to do with the European Union, which I voted to leave?
“I really do despair sometimes.”
Rejoin the EU stated: “The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales.
“To complete the census go to https://census.gov.uk/ and request a code via text.
“Enter the code and away you go. It takes 20 minutes.
“Under nationality, you can choose as many options as you wish – whatever you choose also select Other and enter European.”
