Petition EU Support Treason

A Conservative councillor launched a petition to make supporting the EU a criminal offence, so Twitter exercised its free speech.

Christian Holliday, who sits on the Guildford borough council, launched his petition this morning. He proposes the government 'Amend the Treason Felony Act to make supporting UK membership of the EU a crime.'

After he publicised his push to reform the law on social media, Twitter users swiftly moved to ridicule the petition. Here are some of the best responses.

Mr Holliday has now been suspended from the council until November 8 for referring to the council in the petition without their approval.
