It showed an image of German Chancellor Angel Merkel with her right arm in the air looking as if she is making a nazi salute with the words “We didn’t win two world wars to be pushed around by a kraut”.
This was posted in response to an unconfirmed report from a No10 source which suggested that the Germans would not agree to the new Brexit plan unless Northern Ireland remained within the European Union customs area when the rest of Britain leaves.
