THE MET has been accused of ‘colluding’ with a prominent remain protester to arrest a pro-Brexit activist.
Daniel Thomas, 29 known as ‘Danny Tommo’ was nicked last night during a protest outside the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.
It has been alleged by Mr Thomas that a prominent Anti-Brexit protester called Steven Bray known within Brexit circles as ‘Drunk Steve’ colluded with the Met to fabricate an offence against Tommo.

Bray, 49 from Wales is even linked to the mainstream media and regularly chats with BBC journalists on College Green.
He is said to be on ‘good terms’ with the BBC’s Simon McCoy, as 29-year-old Activist Danny who has been repeatedly smeared by the media as ‘Far Right’ was apprehended by an ‘Army’ of cops on College Green over a pro-remain poster it was claimed.
Around seven to ten Met Police officers surrounded the activist and blocked him in a doorway close to College Green facing the Palace of Westminster and behind Westminster Abbey.
The Met told Politicalite yesterday that “Three males were arrested in relation to demonstrations being held in Westminster on Tuesday, 15 January.”
The three arrests are for a public order offence, one for criminal damage (on College Green) and one was arrested for assault.
Danny posted live to Facebook yesterday and said: “I don’t know what’s happened… but I’m currently being detained by the Police.”
His offence was not known until after he was arrested.
After being released late last night, Tommo, 29 took to Twitter to slam the Metropolitan Police service and claimed that Police ‘fabricated an offence’ against the activist.
He added: “I’ve been released with no bail conditions as they realised the lie would be exposed.”
