Leavers are famed for the fanatical way in which they deny facts if those facts don't support their fairytale vision of the future. To highlight these amazing delusions some talented wit has penned a beautiful image of March 29th 2019 from their perspective. Anonymous author, we salute you!
You probably know Johan Runeberg, but what do you know about Fredrika Runeberg? As the wife of Finland’s national poet, Fredrika Runeberg has sometimes been overshadowed. Here are five fantastic facts to get to know her life and contributions to Finnish culture a little bit better.
It's well documented how much the British right-wing press has dedicated itself to scaremongering and anti-EU propaganda in the last 45 years. What is less well known is the sheer scale of this endless stream of lies...until now
Despite its vast size, much of Finland is very similar. Drive from Helsinki to Lapland and for the entire 15 hours, you're likely to see much the same scenery, forests and lakes. However, there are some wonderful ways that parts of Finland are very different from each other. To see for yourself check out these wonderful maps, courtesy of Reddit.
As the UK gets ever closer to committing "national suicide" — with companies deserting in droves, medicine and food being stockpiled and rich Leavers buying themselves EU citizenship — it's easy to forget how ludicrous this Tory fiasco has been from the beginning. Happily, an anonymous writer has crafted a short, yet hilarious history to put it all into perspective. So, if you're still able to sit comfortably, despite impending disaster, let's begin.
Despite the Brexit car crash currently unfolding, Brits still excel at one of their most positive national characteristics. Bitingly dark and self-deprecating humour. To see this in full force, enjoy Hugo Rifkind, son of a conservative politician and columnist of The Times, hilariously comparing Brexit to a ‘Cheese Submarine.’ in what has to be the best analogy of the year
Despite what Theresa May says, the facts don't lie. EU immigration has been hugely beneificial to the UK. Research from University College London shows European migrants pay in more in taxes than they take out in state benefits. That contribution – valued at £2bn a year – is helped fuel Britain’s economic growth over the last decade. Arek Widawski is one of these people.
While we all know Theresa May is not a fan of a people's vote, that hasn't stopped her appealing to the people of the UK with a Brexit begging letter. Needless to say her fanciful aim of uniting the nation around her disastrous policy has been met far from favourably. But perhaps the best reply we have seen so far come from veteran folk singer Mike Harding.
In the interests of balance, I've just spent a day reading through a bunch of pro-Brexit Facebook pages. I understand that everyone has the same right to an opinion, even if I don't agree with them and, honestly, thought I may learn something which would give me a different point of view. Which it did.
