Noose-carrying protester on Tommy Robinson march calls for Theresa May to be HANGED over Brexit

A man who gave his name as Laukan Creasey, from Stevenage rocked up at the demo against the PM's deal today in London with his own rope.

Thousands are attending a protest calling on MPs to stop betraying the referendum, as thousands of Jeremy Corbyn's hard-left Momentum have come to protest against them on a separate rally.

Mr Creasey told the Press Association: "That's what the traitor May deserves. That's what treasonous people get."

There's been just one arrest, but some protestors clashed with police during the rally.

Controversial right-wing figure Tommy Robinson, the former leader of the English Defence League, was leading today's march after he was appointed as an adviser to the anti-EU party last month.

The move caused uproar in the party ranks, and now ex-leaders Nigel Farage and Paul Nuttall have quit the party altogether, taking a string of senior figures with them.

Riot police and horses are lining the streets in central London trying to keep the two rallies peaceful – and away from each other.

The Met has said they will adopt a "robust arrest policy on anyone who attends and is intent on violence and disorder".

Robinson told crowds today that the establishment "fear a movement that can be policitised across this country".

And Ukip leader Gerard Batten added: "The only we will ever achieve a real exit from the EU is rebuild the Ukip electoral threat once again."

Labour's Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell called on the party's supporters to attend the march and protest against Robinson.

He said yesterday:  "This march isn't about Brexit, it's about far-right extremists dressing up in suits and pretending to be respectable."

"It doesn’t matter whether you voted leave or remain, Tommy Robinson doesn’t represent you.

"I call on all Labour members and anyone who cares about the future of our country to join the demonstration on 9 December and stand firm against the poison Robinson is trying to inject into our politics."

Robinson and his supporters marched down Park Lane and Parliament Street – meeting at Whitehall.

The counter protest marched through Trafalgar Square but were cornered off at the other end of the road to keep the protests separate.

Last week, Robinson admitted to spreading fake news about Muslims attacking white kids after wading into the Syrian refugee bullying row, saying he had been duped.

The clip, shared tens of thousands of times, shows the victim with his arm in a cast being dragged to the floor by his neck as his attacker says "I'll drown you" on a school playing field.

The attacker, 16, who has since gone into hiding with his family, said that far-right group Britain First ‘do right’ and posted links to Tommy Robinson mocking burkas.

Shameless Robinson then sparked fury by defending the bully.

The activist was jailed earlier this year for contempt of court, but the verdict was later quashed.

The case is now with the Attorney General, who will decide whether to send it to the High Court or drop it altogether.

The march comes just two days before MPs are set to vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal in the Commons.

But with growing opposition and hundreds of MPs opposed to it, the vote could be put back.

Mrs May is expected to decide tomorrow whether to ask Brussels for more concessions when she flies out later this week for a separate EU summit.

Today Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab and Esther McVey all threw their hats into the ring to replace her if she falls this week – and all refused to rule out running.

But Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said the vote WOULD be happening on Tuesday as planned, even as the PM faces certain defeat.
