Protesters who forced Boris Johnson to axe press conference were led by an opera singer from Canada

The noisy protesters who forced Boris Johnson to cancel his Press conference yesterday were led by a Canadian opera singer.

David John Pike rallied British expats on Facebook to descend on the Ministry of State in Luxembourg, where they hurled abuse at the PM.

The baritone arrived with a loud-speaker which he set up yards away from where Mr Johnson was due to speak.

Protesters shouted ‘Boris – the incredible t**t’, ‘Bog off Boris’ and ‘B******s to Boris’.

Mr Pike, who has lived in Luxembourg for 18 years, moved to Britain from Canada when he was 30. 

He claimed yesterday’s 50 to 60-strong group of protesters were all British or dual-nationality expats.

He said they were mainly ‘teachers, EU institution workers, business people, bankers, mums and dads – people who are concerned about this catastrophe’.
