Brexit Secretary David ‘Dave’ Davis has confirmed that the UK after Brexit will have nothing whatsoever in common with the Mad Max films.

This comes as no surprise given that the series originated on a shoestring budget and was characterised by everyone pulling together to create something truly special.

Instead, Davis has indicated -in a rare moment of clarity, that Brexit Britain will more closely resemble such follies as Waterworld and The Postman. They stand as testament to the vanity of rich men and were characterised by everyone getting in a pickle and producing something truly woeful and unnecessary.

Briefing

Off The Perch understands that Davis’s use of film metaphors stems from a classified briefing paper. Officials at the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) wanted to summarise the impact assessments in a form Davis could actually understand. So they produced a list of possible outcomes:

No Brexit – Love Actually

OK, so admittedly it’s an absolute liberal luvviefest, but everyone muddles along OK in a terribly British way. And the UK prime minister is actually free to stand up to the US.

Soft Brexit – Atonement

Although the single market option seems to be papering over the cracks, there’s a constant suspicion that all’s not well and a choice made in the past could have terrible consequences.

Rather Hard Brexit – The Beach

Shit Brexit – The Road or, if we’re lucky, How I Live Now

The No Deal scenario beloved by bluekippers soon sees cannibalistic gangs roaming the irredeemably fucked land. Most people, once they’ve eaten their blue passport, just want to die.

No wonder Dave was shy with the details.

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.
