Nation shocked as NoBoaty NoBoatFace loses ferry contract
As part of its no-deal Brexit planning, the government… well… it didn’t actually do any planning, but it did offer money to anyone who’d sign a contract. One such entity was NoBoaty NoBoatFace. But now, said funding has been pulled.
As it turned out, NoBoaty NoBoatFace had failed to fill out the necessary paperwork for the boat it doesn’t own. This meant it wouldn’t be insured for the trips it’s incapable of fulfilling.
No boaty mo’ problems
Ironically, the government’s ‘planning’ for no-deal has done nothing but expose how unprepared we are. How unprepared we are for anything. It’s a miracle we survive through the winter each year.
Other no-deal Brexit planning has included:
- Seeing how many Pot Noodle flavour sachets we can get from one zoo monkey.
- Experimenting to see if confiscated street drugs can be used as children’s medicine.
- Seeing how traffic copes following a controlled detonation of innovative jams in the Channel Tunnel.
The results, according to the Brexit ministry, were:
- No sachets whatsoever and several stitches for the government’s chief monkey wrangler.
- We’ll let you know when the kids come down off the ceiling.
- Why did we explode the jam again?
Chaos with the Tories
You’d think all this failure would make our threats of leaving with no-deal ring hollow. What you’re forgetting is that we’re the idiots who gave NoBoaty NoBoatface a contract in the first place.

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.
