While the deluded fanatics of the ERG witter on about the greatness of Brexit and bouffanted pub millionaires tour the country speaking nonsense, people in other countries have a clearer view. Take Italy, for example, where pizza has been used to express their bemusement.
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.
Last week, Theresa May ruled out an autumn election in the UK, stating that it was not going to be "in the national interest" to hold one before Brexit. But let's just stop for a minute and examine the recent history of the phrase "national interest" and it's association with the Conservative party, shall we?
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.
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.
We've found the ultimate source for anti-Brexit burn. At least gigglesnort yourself through UK's grace period, pending terminal Post-colonial irrelevance.
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 Tory Brexit government is floundering already. Just how badly is beautifully demonstrated by these cartoonists
