LOYALIST activist Willie Frazer has said those unhappy with the EU referendum result in Northern Ireland should move across the border.

In a bizarre video shot on the border with Co Monaghan and posted on Tuesday evening on social media Mr Frazer urges people here to "get over it" and "get a life" following the UK's decision to leave the EU.

"Anyone that wants to remain within the EU away you go, there's plenty of room across on the other side of the border," he said.

The activist has also suggested that if the EU referendum was to be re-run, then he would like a re-run of the Good Friday Agreement and a referendum bringing back the 'B men' (Ulster Special Constabulary/B Specials) to the border.

"Let me tell you when the B men were on this border there were no IRA men running back and forward," Mr Frazer tells the camera, before going to his car and taking out a Lee-Enfield 303 rifle and posing with the gun.

Back in February the activist came under fire for posting photos of himself posing with guns on Facebook. At the time he said the rifles were on display as part of a military exhibition held in the village of Aughnacloy, Co Tyrone.

The 55-year-old also appears to give a Nazi salute at one point during the latest video.

The controversial four minute post appeared on the 'Protestant Coalition' Facebook page on Tuesday evening and already has provoked online outrage with Mr Frazer labelled an "embarrassment".
