A British woman who started a petition to close the UK's borders until Isis is defeated has revealed that she currently lives in Spain.

Tina Reeves began the campaign in September on the government's parliament website and it currently has 424,000 signatures.

The petition states:

"In February 2015 Dr Shea, Nato’s Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges, warned there would be IS jihadists on the refugee boats. IS also threatened to flood Europe with 500,000 jihadists.

"Allowing uncontrolled immigration and taking in these refugees potentially endangers the entire UK population. At any other time in our history this would be tantamount to a declaration of war and borders would be closed."

When interviewed by Russia Today about it, the caption showing her location read "Jaen, Spain".

Reeves also confirmed to The Huffington Post UK that she spends around 50% of the year in Spain and the rest in Plymouth.

Further, research on the EDL News website suggests she lives in Chirivel, in the south of the country.

Tina has since sought to clarify her position...

But she still doesn't quite get it....

The episode is rather reminiscent of the time the English Defence League set up a Spanish ex-pat division.
