It is incredible that people still believe racial stereotyping like this is permissible as a political argument.

Billboards calling on people to “Halt ze German advance” by voting in favour of Brexit have been pictured on the side of a motorway.

Several boards are understood to have been placed alongside the M40 in Oxfordshire. They use Vote Leave branding – the official anti-EU campaign – and read in full: “’Halt ze German advance!’ Vote Leave”.

Pictures of the boards have quickly circulated on social media, with users branding them as “xenophobic” and “pathetic.”

The campaign director of Vote Leave, Dominic Cummings, said he believed “dummies on our side” were responsible.

“They are not Vote Leave billboards, we don’t know who put them up but think it’s dummies on our side not BSE,” he said over Twitter.
