‘Why, was it speeding?’ Outraged Remainers are ridiculed for their dodgy spelling as they demand ‘stop the coupe’ over Boris Johnson’s plan to suspend Parliament
- Hapless anti-Brexit supporters were mocked for mistaking ‘coup’ for ‘coupe’
- Dozens of Twitter users questioned why they had issue with two-door sports cars
- #StopTheCoup came after Boris’ shock move to suspend Parliament next month
Anti-Brexit supporters are being mocked mercilessly online for starting the hashtag #StopTheCoupe in a bid to prevent Boris Johnson from suspending Parliament.
Remainers rallied together yesterday to create a #StopTheCoup trend on Twitter when the PM secured permission from the Queen to prorogue Parliament.
But many hapless pro-EU campaigners jumping on the bandwagon today got ‘coup’ and ‘coupe’ mixed up, prompting dozens of users to question why they had an issue with two-door sports cars.
One user, named Blake, wrote: ‘I see #stopthecoupe is trending and I’m taking a strong stance against it… I love my coupe, it’s a great little car.’

Daniel Drury shared a photograph of his BMW M3 and responded: ‘#StopTheCoupe is trending, I personally really like coupes.’
Frances Weetman posted a photo of a Subaru BRZ coupe with the caption: ‘I’ve always been a firm opponent of coupes.’
Jonathan Pie joked: ‘The fact that #StopTheCoop and #StopTheCoupe have been trending for the past 24 hours is an incredibly powerful argument in favour of why we still need the ‘do not eat’ warnings on silica gel packets.

Dozens mocked the anti-Brexit campaigners by sharing photos of their favourite coupes
The Prime Minister stunned the nation yesterday as he secured permission from the Queen to prorogue Parliament at some point in the week beginning September 9 until October 14.
Mr Johnson insisted that he called for a Queen’s speech to unveil an ‘exciting’ new domestic agenda.
But the move has been widely interpreted by critics as a ploy to ram a No Deal Brexit through Parliament by not giving Remain MPs the time to seize control of the order paper.
Mr Johnson has promised to take Britain out of the bloc on October 31 ‘do or die’ and with or without a deal but his preference remains leaving with an agreement.
