Following a statement from the London embassy in support of the National Unity Government, Libyan activists launched a hashtag on social media calling for the expulsion of British Ambassador Caroline Hurndall.
Within hours of the British embassy’s statement, the hashtag #Expel_British_Ambassador_from_Libya was posted on its Twitter account, in response to what activists described as the site’s most frequently traded “unacceptable violation”.
One activist said in a tweet that “the British embassy’s statement about its recognition and support for the Tabaiba government should not go unnoticed until after the election.”
He continued: “Protests in all Libyan cities against this blatant intervention!”
Another activist added: “National forces operating in the East, West and South must urgently meet and set aside their political differences to save the motherland. The homeland will not be saved by bloggers’ tweets or their publications.”
It should not be overlooked that the British Embassy has stated its recognition and support for the Taipei government until the election.
