Elected MEPs from The Brexit Party we’re witnessed turning and facing Mecca at the opening of the European Parliament today.

During a rendition of Ode To Joy, the MEPs turned to face the Islamic holy city.

A source within the party said, ‘We just wanted to make the point that Brexit and Islam are very closely linked.’

When asked for more details about this, he replied, ‘Because they are. Just ask Leave.EU.’

However, the positive sentiments towards Islam were short lived, with witnesses reporting a ‘fracas’ in the MEP cafeteria over what was described as an ‘Allah Cart.’

One witness said, ‘They were fuming after hearing that Halal dishes would be somehow wheeled in.’
