People have been handing out hand-written postcards from Paris to show solidarity across the Channel

This time last week, Bob Geldof and Nigel Farage went head-to-head in a Brexit flotilla fight, which was all kinds of weird and didn't really achieve much except to get #BattleOfTheThames trending. So it's nice to see that today, people are doing something genuinely nice ahead of the EU referendum tomorrow. In a project called Operation Croissant, a group of people brought over croissants from Paris this morning to hand out at King's Cross.

Sadly, it seems that the UK electoral commission doesn't allow people to hand out food, so the croissants have gone to a homeless shelter instead. 

But it wasn't a wasted trip. They're also handing out hand-written postcards with messages from people from Paris about why they feel close to Britain.
