At this point, most people know what no-deal Brexit is, and realise it’s a bad idea. Some people still want it, if only because they don’t want to admit they have no idea how to make a deal-Brexit happen.

As Boris Johnson needs to sell no-deal to more than just the rampant weirdos who want it, he’s now undertaking a rebranding exercise.

Mad Men

The proposed new names for no-deal include:

  • No-fuss Brexit.
  • Fat-free Brexit.
  • Brexit for dummies.
  • Brexit for people who struggle with those ‘books for dummies’ books.
  • The Brex a man can get.
  • Brexi Max.
  • Brexit Vista.
  • B-2000.
  • Brexspresso.
  • BREXIT BUT IN ALL CAPS AND A COOL FONT.

Several of these potential name choices were tested on the public. Most people asked:

Is it still the version of Brexit where we crash out then Donald Trump swoops down on us like a massive, orange vulture?

Other people said things like:

How about you call it ‘not really a fucking option Brexit’, and you just don’t do it?

One man suggested:

I’d call it the ‘Boris Johnson’ so everyone remembers whose fault it was.

Options

Right now, there’s a 50% chance no-deal Brexit will happen. The other 49% is that we get Brexit Vista, while a final 1% sees us turning it all around.

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.
