A Week in London: Full English Brexit

Hard-Boiled Brexit

When I voted in the referendum I didn’t see a disclaimer in small print saying “Subject to further voting in parliament.”  No wonder Dave was so keen to resign and have it away on his toes.  The voting form didn’t ask if I wanted a soft or hard-boiled Brexit either.  No, I voted for a total exit, and that’s what the government should have delivered without delay.  Dave should’ve triggered Article 50 before he went, then cancelled the direct debit and unsubscribed from the newsletter. If nothing happens by early next year, I predict a riot.  Look for me in Trafalgar Square setting fire to the EU flag.

Riots

Talking of civil disobedience, 53 soap-dodgers were arrested in London on Saturday night.  No-one knows exactly what these masked demonstrators are campaigning for, nor do they.  But you need to be really hard to throw bottles at the Polis wearing a mask.

Poppies

I understand FIFA have threatened the England football team with sanctions should they wear poppies for an international game, as it’s political.  More Johnny Foreigners interfering with our business.  I hope Gareth Southgate encourages the wearing of poppies.  If he wants to ban something, stop players wearing those stupid headphones when they get off the team coach.
