Thousands of people have signed up on Facebook to a Dutch beach party for Brexit, featuring food from across the European Union to mark Britain's departure.

Created by media worker Ron Toekook, the event calls for partygoers to meet at the seaside village of Wijk aan Zee near Amsterdam on October 31, the date Britain is meant to leave.

More than 7,000 people have already said they will attend while 52,000 others are interested.

'It will be a nice goodbye to a good friend who is going on an exciting adventure, but is perhaps not too bright,' Toekook told the Dutch news agency ANP on Tuesday.

The party will involve 'sitting in a deck chair with Dutch chips, French wine and German beer, watching Britain as it closes itself off.'

'If there is enough interest there may be a band that can play... 'We'll Meet Again'.'

Suggestions for other songs to be played included Dutch novelty boyband 'Breunion Boys' and their single 'Britain Come Back'.

Toekook said the party was a natural step for the Netherlands, which has had centuries of close cultural, trade and political links with Britain.

With their economies still closely intertwined, the Dutch have made major preparations in case Britain crashes out of the EU without a divorce deal on October 31.

It comes as  Boris Johnson laid down the law to Brussels over the Irish backstop, demanding it be axed completely from Brexit negotiations.

The Prime Minister told the EU the backstop was 'simply unviable' and should be replaced with a new legal commitment to avoid the return of a hard border.

In a forthright letter to European Council president Donald Tusk, Mr Johnson said the backstop was 'anti-democratic', unsustainable as the basis for a long-term relationship and put the Good Friday Agreement at risk.

He wrote: 'The problems with the backstop run much deeper than the simple political reality that it has three times been rejected by the House of Commons. The truth is that it is simply unviable.'

Instead, he said, Britain and the EU should commit to finding 'alternative arrangements' to manage the Irish border by the end of a transition period.

This essentially means a technology-based solution, or the so-called 'MaxFac' approach, to avoid a hard border.

332,000 people sign petition against Boris Johnson suspending parliament.
The Queen has approved the order to prorogue Parliament but the matter must now be discussed in Parliament as 100,000 names on a petition forces MPs to have a debate.
