A lot of ‘sensible’ people have called for a ‘government of national unity’. They claim it would help us solve Brexit – just like the last one helped us win World War II.

Can you see the difference between those two events?

While 99.99% of Britons wanted to win the world war, no such majority exists for Remain or Brexit. In fact, we know people are split roughly 50/50. To make matters worse, the MPs proposing the idea can’t even decide on a name.

Here we go again

No Brexiteers want a government of national unity. They already have one on their issue, as the Johnson administration is Brexit through and through.

This left it to centrist MPs to push for the so-called ‘unity’ government. A secret recording of three MPs caught the following:

MP1: So we’re all agreed – we push for a government of national unity?

MP2: Are we really settled on that name?

MP1: Does it matter?

MP3: Well I think it does. I think it should be the government for national unity.

MP2: Oh piss off. It should be the unity government of national unity.

MP1: But that has the word ‘unity’ in it twice!

MP2: Exactly! That’s how people will know how unified we are!

At this point, the unified proponents of a unity government of unified unity all started fist fighting.

Bredictable

After talks broke down, the proponents of the idea eventually settled on the one name they could all agree on. The name of this unity administration will be:

Change UK

Oh no – sorry – it’s now:

Unity UK

And now it’s:
