These 5 definitions of Brexit went viral. It’s easy to see why.

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.

  1. i take it you”re alright jack. about time the government done its job and cut the amount of east europeans comming here as the “ignorant” british people gave them the mandate to.

  2. Not since Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Duck Lucky, Turkey Lurkey and Goosey Loosey listened to Foxy Loxy has anyone paid so much attention to someone so disinterested in their well-being.

  3. Make sure you don’t delete your blog. Historians will be referring to it as an example of the over-confident claptrap that was being pedalled in the early 21st Century. How can you be so certain – no one knows exactly how things will play out? All I can say is the Brits voted for self-determination, and that has never been something to scoff at. When the rest of Europe wakes up to the undemocratic nature of the European project, and realises that the wave of regulations is strangling innovation and the rest of the world, especially Asia, is leaving you behind, you might be a bit more respectful about our choice. And if 3 million immigrants had suddenly hit your health and social services, and therefore your pay packet. you might be a bit more circumspect on freedom of movement.

    • Considering a lot of those are nurses and doctors, they are propping the NHS up, not burdening it. It really isn’t that hard…

      • Tim. There’s hardly 3 million immigrants unless you go back quite a few decades and so even if you dispute the numbers that is certainly not “suddenly”. Rash statements like that are what poison rationable debate. For instance, how do you define immigrant, according to the House of Commons Library there are 3 different definitions? So your comment I put down as “Fake News”.

    • From another Tim: You’re confusing immigration with freedom of movement.
      How many of those immigrants actually burden the health and social services? You don’t know.
      How much tax revenue do they pay? Is it net positive or negative? Do you know that?
      How many of them are from the EU? Do you know that?
      How many of them could have had their entry controlled under existing UK laws? You aware of how many that might be?

      Brexit was sold to the populace as being about immigration. Wake up, mate. It’s not about that. That’s not what the powers that be are trying to achieve at all. You want trade deals with anyone at all after Brexit? Japan, India, China? Guess what they will demand for their citizens? You got it.

  4. How we arrived at this sorry situation:-
    David Cameron, to save his own neck within the Tory Party, indulges in blatant political opportunism by calling a Referendum to satisfy his critics, on leaving the EU (Brexit) which he’s sure he can’t lose. He does, and he resigns. In steps Theresa May, a Remainer, as PM. She sets into motion Article 50, which in turn sets off the procedures by which the UK will leave the EU. AND, like Cameron, she TOO indulges in blatant political opportunism to reinforce HER position within the Tory Party, by calling a General Election sure that she’ll increase her Westminster majority DURING BREXIT NEGOTIATIONS, wasting valuable debating time. She loses seats in this election, and has to bribe the DUP to keep her afloat, finding large sums of money to pay them off during a sustained period of austerity. Now she expects us to be grateful to us for offering a “deal” which is actually worse for us had we not started this whole sorry business.
    Sorry for the rant. I needed it out of my system!

    • there isn’t any real evidence that May voted to remain,only what she told us, I think she voted to leave and is doing her best to achieve it.

  5. I feel it will be a hard Brexit. In this event the Government, in a presumed position of strength, will then renegotiate with the EU, giving back concessions to get various in return. I hope we don’t give back our assumed recently reclaimed fishing industry. That aside, the content of what we give back to the EU could be the subject or an election or referendum. Would this not be more meaningful than just jumping up and down and having tantrums on both sides.

  6. It is what it is,
    It’s not what it’s not,
    It is what it’s not,
    It’s not what it is,
    What is it then?
