On Sunday 19 November, the world was supposed to end. With ‘supposed’ in inverted commas, as the theory was that Earth would be gravitationally ravaged by the passing of Planet X (or “Nibiru”, as students of imaginary astronomy call it).

Obviously, the sort of people who believed this are what the medical community refer to as ‘dipsticks’. What’s interesting is that several of these dipsticks work in the Brexit department. And they’ve admitted that fear of imminent destruction has affected their work output.

Living on a prayer

We caught up with the junior Brexit minister, Alison Imperial-Nana:

Yeah… this is kind of embarrassing.

If it looked like we weren’t working on a Brexit solution, that’s because we weren’t. We kind of assumed the planet was going to blow up, so why bother?

We asked how on Earth they’d come to believe such an outlandish theory:

Just blind hope really. We hadn’t looked into Brexit before we told people to vote for it. Turns out it’s going to be a bit of a nightmare. As such, we all got to thinking – ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if the world blew up and saved us the effort?’

Some people are pleased that we’re actually going to have a plan now. Others are questioning how these Brexiteers could have been so easily misled.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
