If there’s any silver lining to the titanic idiocy of Brexit, it is its comedy value. Nearly a year and a half into the collective face-planting there’s been a wealth of memes, videos and cartoons. One genre that’s also erupted in popularity is definitions. These take Brexit or a Brexit “hero” and define their attributes in a fun new way. The 5 below have all gone viral, for obvious reasons.

There are countless reasons to love JK Rowling. One is her peerless ability to destroy the increasingly fantastical Brexit fantasies peddled on Twitter.

Previously she stepped into the debate to shut down a Brexiteer who blamed Remainers for the failing EU negotiations. Now, she’s displayed that skill in fine style against Leaver luvvie and Conservative MEP, Daniel Hannan, by showcasing the glaring flaw in his shockingly bad and utterly unverifiable Brexit analogy.

Clearly unimpressed by Hannan’s ability to predict the future JK Rowling’s responded.

Today British Prime Minister Theresa May tried to set out an upbeat vision for Britain’s future relationship with the EU in a speech at the Santa Maria Novella church in the heart of Florence, Italy. Sadly, the internet wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as she’d hoped about her new “have your cake and eat it” proposals.

As the idiocy of Brexit grows ever clearer by the day, it seems that the expectations of Leavers grow ever more diminished. Inspired by a fantastically fun tweet by David Schneider, we’ve detailed how reality is making their Brexit utopia bleaker and bleaker. Let’s hope, for everyone’s sake, sanity prevails before level 6.

Level 1

Everything is going to be wonderful. We’ll be richer, the NHS will get £350m a week more money, we’ll go back to Imperial measurements and the streets will be permanently swathed in Union Jack bunting.

Level 2

We’re going to be richer eventually. It just might take a few years, that’s all. It will all be worth it in the end.

Level 3

I don’t care if we’re poorer. Money isn’t everything. As long as we have our sovereignty back. Oh and fishing rights, of course.

Level 4

I don’t care if we have to eat poisoned chickens. That’s the price you pay for being a global trading power. Chlorine can’t be that bad for you anyway. We use it to clean kitchens, for god’s sake.

Level 5

I don’t care if my family lose their jobs. Jobs aren’t everything. Sometimes you need to make sacrifices. Kids of today have no idea how hard it was for us.

Level 6

I don’t care if there are no functioning hospitals, farms, cafes, banks, air flights, social care, etc. Who needs society to function when you have sovereignty.

Level 7

I’m happy we now have the Hunger Games. It helps showcase the British bulldog spirit to the world.

Level 8

I’m happy we can only stay alive by eating our own young. At least we have sovereignty now. And only the Danes, Swedes, Norwegians, French and Spain get to fish in our waters.

Level 9

I’m happy we now live in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where only a handful of survivors live on in Boris Johnson’s basement. We’ve certainly shown those Eurocrats and know-it-all experts that we’re not cowed by Project Fear.

Thanks to the less than strong and stable negotiation position of International Trade Secretary Liam Fox (Conservative), the UK could face lower food standards post-Brexit.

 

 

As the UK prepares for stumbles towards an existence outside the EU regulation and partnerships, shoppers will have to prepare for GMO crops and hormone fed meat flooding the market. This appears to be fine with Liam Fox, who’s been very dismissive of the prospect of Englishmen eating chlorine-washed chicken.

In celebration of this, one youtuber shows off their video editing skills by making an advert for the lovely concept of chlorinated chicken.

The only upside of the forthcoming piss-poor trade agreements bringing lousy meat into the UK, is of course that more sane people may consider lowering their meat consumption. As a sidenote, that’s easier than ever thanks to meat-like products like Quorn, from a UK based company.

We find this particularly fitting with the current political landscape, which has hanged over Britain like a perpetual rainy autumn since David Cameron tossed himself and his entire nation in the dustbin of post-colonial history.

 

 

Namely, we remember that the nitwits at the UKIP comissioned a comically lousy cartoon featuring an EU regulated, dark and miserable chicken farm from which the birds free themselves by running towards the Utopian greenery outside.

These cheery chicken can’t wait to renegotiate everything that makes a modern economy run.

That is, despite a scary looking, big-nosed EU politruk behind the curtain trying to keep the chickens inside the farm. He fails despite all manners of musical and water-based special effects.

Nigel Farage is no stranger to playing loose and fast with the truth. Just recently, Mr. Farage held up a sign with what he claims is a quote from the EU article 50 in LBC’s radio studio.

The sign says

“The rights and obligations deriving from the Treaties would therefore extinguish.”

 

 

In fact, the sign quotes a European Parliamentary Research Services briefing, with a sentence Farage failed to quote in its entirety:

The rights and obligations deriving from the Treaties would therefore extinguish, at least to the extent agreed between the EU and the withdrawing state.

Article 50, the actual version, goes like this “the Union shall negotiate and conclude an agreement with that State, setting out the arrangements for its withdrawal”.

Nigel Farage may be a masterful con man on radio and TV, but he can’t lie on a sign held up in front of a camera without being called out by the internet. Read on for sixteen delicious tweets celebrating Farage’s own goal.
