In the image, a lion leaps through a door which says ‘Brexit’ on it – and is painted with a Union Jack. But as the lion exits the other side, it turns into a small, far less intimidating cat.

The cartoon, posted on Twitter by author Charlie Stross, was met by a number of responses.

Oisin Quinn tweeted: “This is insulting to cats.

“Cats look before they jump.”

Another user believes the post is because people are “salty” about the UK leaving the EU.

@bluewingeddog tweeted: “Salty that Britain is becoming more independent?”

Others were not happy with the comment made by @bluewingeddog as it was met by a number of replies.

@onetruejp replied: “Happy you are isolating yourselves and diminishing your relevance.”

@tryst_me replied: “Independent from reality more like.”

The topic of Brexit has been at the forefront of the Conservative party conference this week in Manchester.

The conference runs from October 3 to October 6.

At the party conference, Lord Frost said the UK “can’t wait forever” in regards to Article 16 and the triggering of it.

The Bangkok Post has been contacted by the Express.co.uk for comment on their drawing.
