The Story of Brexit - the only thing that will make you laugh

The latest in the Ladybird book for Grownups series is more nuggets of wisdom from bestselling authors Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris:

The first page shows their approach:

  • “Britain is a proud island. For centuries we stood alone. Now we stand alone again. Other countries, like Croatia and Spain, need to be part of Europe, because they are clearly cowards. But our country is special, and other countries are queueing up to get what we have to offer, whether it is the music of Sting, or any of our several mild cheeses. This is the future.”

The second page sets the scene (in true Ladybird style):

The third page says it all:

“Europe is very different from Britain. For instance, their windows open inwards rather than outwards and it is almost impossible to buy Monster Munch in Bulgaria. No wonder we could not get along.”

CTMfile take: Enjoy and weep at the absurdities of it all.
