NHS preparing for no-deal Brexit by watching The Hunger Games
It’s looking increasingly likely that Britain will crash out of the UK with no deal. Which is weird, because we’re supposedly dead good at negotiating – hence our desire to leave the EU and strike up more deals.
In response, the NHS is already planning for the worst. Namely by watching The Hunger Games and observing what the Tories have already done to the DWP.
A senior planner for the NHS told us:
In the days after the no-deal Brexit, we’re expecting supplies to run short. This will be doubly unfortunate, as we’re also expecting an increase in injuries. Largely because Jacob Rees-Mogg claimed a no-deal Brexit would be a real victory, and idiots tend to get drunk and injure themselves when they’re celebrating.
A few months later, we’re expecting to have no supplies whatsoever. We’ve been preparing for this by training staff in how to use bows and arrows. Our plan is to raid private pleasure cruises for medical supplies when they get too close to the British coast.
If things get even worse, we’ll probably just start wearing cowls and worship an unexploded nuclear bomb. And it probably will get worse, as Jeremy Hunt is still in charge.
If you’re worried about future NHS shortages, we’d advise getting ill now while there’s still medicine. Especially as so many Brexiteers are using up valuable supplies shooting themselves in the foot.

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.
