Remainers have claimed Brexit is a “monster” and hinted that the country could rejoin the European Union. A pro-EU Twitter account has also claimed the departure from the bloc is “destroying its creatures” while questioning its support base. The vote has come under attack recently as experts question the impact on the UK’s economy.

Missing EU funds have left the country scrambling for money and could put British jobs at risk, with the Government at the mercy of financial markets.

A Twitter user has said trouble stemming from the vote has left the UK “in a panic”.

A former corporate lawyer and dual citizen named Mafevema said: “The Brexit monster is destroying its creatures.

“One by one, they fall. First in slow motion. Now in fast forward.”

“The coup is failing & Brexit exposed as an extreme RW libertarians project hidden behind unachievable promises.

“Brexiters are in a panic. We will be back [in the European Union].”

While there is little momentum for rejoining the bloc, some people may soon struggle from a lack of EU funds.

A consortium of community groups has recently warned that funds lost in a Brexit vacuum could place thousands of jobs at risk.

The ESF Peer Group, born from the EU’s European Social Fund (ESF), has warned the Levelling Up Fund won’t replace the funding given to Northern Ireland.

The ESF previously provided approximately £40 million per year on its own, matched in part by Stormont.

Together, the two organisations provided a combined £54 million.

Those funds allowed the group to provide residents with vital employment aid.

Representatives said the Government’s planned Levelling Up funds wouldn’t cover the lost income.

And they claimed to have sought a solution from Stormont and Westminster for over a year.

The group’s chairman told the BBC the EU was funding aid for vulnerable and disadvantaged people who couldn’t find work.

Rev Andrew Irvine said that, without the appropriate funding, the group’s 1,700 workers would be left in an “uncertain” position.

He said: “Everyone accepts that the work of our members is invaluable to the most disadvantaged and marginalised in society who find it difficult to access employment.

“If, however, we can’t secure continuity in funding, the 1,700 people who provide this support will face a very uncertain future.

“Much good work has already taken place to secure funding, but a final agreement is still outstanding.

“There is a small window of opportunity to address these issues this week. If no solution can be reached, jobs and our support programmes will be lost.”
