It’s clear that Boris Johnson hasn’t actually done any planning – whether that be for:
- Becoming prime minister.
He has now fleshed out his vision of what Britain will look like post-no-deal Brexit, though. It’s exactly as ridiculous/terrifying as you’d expect.
No deal. No sense.
Johnson began with all this:
Live : he's finally lost the plot.
He is actually insane. 😱😱 pic.twitter.com/GeNuTAqZnI

After assuring everyone that we’d have “water” and “Mars bars”, he went on to promise:
And buildings! We’ll still have most of the buildings. Definitely the sturdier ones. I can probably guarantee that the majority of structures will survive. We might even build a few new ones.
But what of food, I hear you ask? Shortages? I hardly think so! I mean… sure… maybe the slop we’d grown accustomed to will change, but what if I said you could have newer food? Better food? Take chicken for example – aren’t you sick of it? Wouldn’t you rather have a delectable London street pheasant?
When pressed on what this bird was, Johnson admitted he was talking about pigeons. He argued:
Pigeons are actually the tastiest fowl there is. The only reason we can’t eat them is that blasted EU red tape. The same is true of rats. And dirt. All of which you’ll soon be gorging yourself on.
If there’s one thing we can take away from Boris Johnson promising there’ll be drinking water post-Brexit, it’s this:
There will be no drinking water.
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.
