No-deal Brexit ‘so great’ Johnson spends £100m advertising it
Some things just sell themselves. No-deal Brexit, it seems, is not one of them:
So how does one sell a product like no-deal Brexit? Johnson’s original plan was to rip off tried-and-tested ad campaigns. Suggestions included:
- Got Brexit?
- Maybe she’s born with it; maybe she just can’t get the medicated shampoo she needs since the ports closed.
- You know when you’ve been Brexited.
- Just do it. We can’t think of any good reasons for no-deal, so please, just do it.
- Have a break – have all the time off you need, in fact – we’re moving the factory to China.
- No-deal Brexit makes you drunk.
- The future’s bright; the future’s President Orange and his NHS-eating trade deal.
- Its wash-your-fingers-after-handling-the-chlorinated-chicken good.
- Vorsprung durch it up ’em!
- I’m loving (Brex)it.
- A Brexit each generation stops the doctors graduating.
- No-deal Brexit – the best a man can negotiate.
After analysing them all, Johnson decided to go with simply:
No-deal Brexit: aren’t you just a little bit curious to see how much worse things can get?
Johnson has a minuscule majority, no electoral mandate, and the worst policy idea since Atlantis decided to cut flood defences. He does have an advertising budget, though.
If the latter trumps the former, it looks like we can conclusively say Brex sells.

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.
