Whether you voted to Remain or Leave, I think we can all agree on one thing: that this period – the period right now – when we still don’t know what Brexit will entail and every day is a confused repeat of the last – is pretty fantastic.
As such, Theresa May has called for a two-year Brexit extension. In her own words to:
KEEP THIS FLIPPING PARTY GOING, MOTHER FUDGERS! WOO! LET’S MAINTAIN THIS SHINDIG COMMENCING!
We spoke to some people from across the political spectrum to find out what they thought:
Boland Tump – 49 – Hardcore Hard Brexiteer
EVERY SECOND THAT WE SPEND IN THE EU IS AN OUTRAGE! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF UNTIL WE’VE COMPLETED THE ARBITRARY STEP I’VE DECIDED WILL FILL THE VAST HOLE INSIDE OF ME!?
Ellesabeth Fizzy-Pye – 39 – Hardcore Remain
Every second that we spend talking about not staying in the EU is an outrage! I feel like these Northerners will rethink their position when they realise they’ll need a visa to visit Florence in future! Vince Cable could be Prime Minister!
Karen Donnelly – 25 – Remain Voter/Brexit Accepter
This still sounds terrible, but I suppose it gives us time to make it less terrible? Which is something. I guess? Ugh.
Benny Hull – 32 – Can’t Remember How He Voted
Why are we still talking about it? They promised me that the vote would decide it one way or the other! WHY ARE WE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT!? DID NO ONE HAVE A PLAN!? STOP MAKING ME TALK ABOUT IT!!!
Of course, there is a chance we could just keep renewing our EU membership every two years. This would obviously bring us all the benefits of being in the EU. And it would also allow the more nationalistic Brexiteers to carry on feeling like the joy they will never experience in their bitter hearts is but a mere two years away.
Although obviously we probably can’t do that, as it would require negotiating. And our negotiating team is currently staffed by David ‘Dave’ Davis, some zero-hour contract teenagers, and the few trained negotiators who haven’t signed off with stress yet.
We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
