‘Brexit Man’, Steve Bray, was behind the stunt

Ed Balls and Good Morning Britain anchor Susanna Reid decided to have a little dance as they were surprised by a protestor singing “Bye, bye, Boris” outside Westminster on Wednesday.

Discussing the resignations of the now-former health secretary Sajid Javid and ex-chancellor Rishi Sunak, the former secretary of state and TV presenter were discussing what the walkouts might mean for Boris Johnson when the tune of “Bye Bye Baby” by the Bay City Rollers began blasting over the broadcast.

As Reid joked “are we about to karaoke?”, it quickly became clear that the prankster was none other than Steve Bray, alternatively known as ‘Brexit Man’, who could be heard singing “just gotta get him to go away” before launching into his own version of the chorus: “Bye, bye Boris, Boris goodbye”.

The pair then began to dance to the tune, with Balls even biting his lip as he got into the rhythm of the tune. Reid remarked: “I suppose if you’re no longer allowed to shout, there are other ways of making your voice heard” – a reference to London police seizing Bray’s speakers after his demonstrations were deemed “too noisy” under new protest laws.

Nevertheless, Bray hasn’t been deterred and no doubt took delight in the series of resignations announced on Tuesday evening.

Better still, it wasn’t the only time Bray’s impromptu protest was caught on camera; it’s true, the timing here absolutely makes this clip:
