If there’s any silver lining to the titanic idiocy of Brexit, it is its comedy value. Nearly a year and a half into the collective face-planting there’s been a wealth of memes, videos and cartoons. One genre that’s also erupted in popularity is definitions. These take Brexit or a Brexit “hero” and define their attributes in a fun new way. The 5 below have all gone viral, for obvious reasons.
There are countless reasons to love JK Rowling. One is her peerless ability to destroy the increasingly fantastical Brexit fantasies peddled on Twitter.
Previously she stepped into the debate to shut down a Brexiteer who blamed Remainers for the failing EU negotiations. Now, she’s displayed that skill in fine style against Leaver luvvie and Conservative MEP, Daniel Hannan, by showcasing the glaring flaw in his shockingly bad and utterly unverifiable Brexit analogy.
Today British Prime Minister Theresa May tried to set out an upbeat vision for Britain’s future relationship with the EU in a speech at the Santa Maria Novella church in the heart of Florence, Italy. Sadly, the internet wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as she’d hoped about her new “have your cake and eat it” proposals.
What if we told you there’s this place on the interweb you can go to receive regular updates of the latest, most vicious anti-Brexit memes? Well there is, over at the Twitters, under the account @SoVeryBrexit, or Very Brexit Problems. You can also find the same dank political misery over at Facebook, if that’s your thing.
The titanic idiocy of Brexit has inevitably prompted an avalanche of commentary and correspondence critiquing its epic stupidity. However, some letters captured the mood, of an increasingly skeptical public, so well they went viral. To see why there were shared by tens of thousands and read by millions have look below.
The Poke, one of the UK’s funniest satirical websites, asked Twitter for Brexit themed children’s books to help with the task of explaining Britain’s slow motion suicide to kids. Needless to say, the internet delivered in fine style.
As the idiocy of Brexit grows ever clearer by the day, it seems that the expectations of Leavers grow ever more diminished. Inspired by a fantastically fun tweet by David Schneider, we’ve detailed how reality is making their Brexit utopia bleaker and bleaker. Let’s hope, for everyone’s sake, sanity prevails before level 6.
Thanks to the less than strong and stable negotiation position of International Trade Secretary Liam Fox (Conservative), the UK could face lower food standards post-Brexit.
Nigel Farage is no stranger to playing loose and fast with the truth. Just recently, Mr. Farage held up a sign with what he claims is a quote from the EU article 50 in LBC’s radio studio.
Just over a year after the British marginally voted to self-destruct by implementing an advisory referendum with bewildering fantasticism, the negotiations have finally kicked off. Needless to say, the breathtakingly clueless Tory Brexit government is floundering already. Just how badly inept they are is beautifully demonstrated by these cartoonists. Titanic idiocy doesn’t get much funnier (or more ridiculous).
