A prominent Brexiteer has just told the House of Commons that there should be a statue of Theresa May erected in his constituency to commemorate the "Brexit Queen".
Wellingborough MP Peter Bone announced during Prime Minister’s Questions that “In 331 days, 11 hours and 14 minutes and 22 seconds the Prime Minister will be leading us out of the European Union.
He continued: “My question to the Prime Minister is, in 332 days time, will she came to Wellingborough where she will be carried should height through the streets to the echoing of cheering crows and I will be able to show her the site where a statue to the Brexit queen will be erected?”
Following a burst of laughter from Parliament, the PM responded: “My honourable friend is absolutely right. We will be leaving the European Union and I’m tempted to say to his request ‘how can I refuse?’”.
So while the Brexiteers have yet to master the finer details of Brexit, they do at least have some sort of plan for Britain post-Brexit... and it involves blue passports, statues, and commemorative stamps...
As one tweeter put it, it’s “peak Brexiodicy”.
