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
DUP in government could be a step back for human dignity in the UK. We've collected some of the worst things these close-minded bigots have said.
May's "strong and stable" leadership has now resulted in a coalition of chaos at the beck and call of the DUP, a party so whacko they think the Pope is the Anti-Christ, gay marriage a sin, climate change is a myth and the earth is only 6000 years old. Happily, this shitstorm has given Twitter a field day.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has now set in stone a mantra for the upcoming General Election. With the drearily predictable "strong and stable" repeated ad infinitum, May continues what comes naturally to her. That is, of course, sounding like robotic bureaucrat trying to imitate Margaret Thatcher's airy arrogance. Happily, the Internet has done what it does best and had some fun with her PR spin.
