So, this van that hit Farage, what do we reckon? Peugeot? They're made in Poland now. I bet there's no chance it was a white van either.

How have I only just realised that "Get Brexit Done," is an anagram of "Being Extorted"?

I wrote a post years ago about being happy that we will get back at least some of our workers. Now we have the truck drivers, you got your stolen jobs back. Win-win.
:guiness;

Sorry, I had to…

“…and that's the fault of you, the British public, for not becoming lorry drivers, and the hauliers associations who won't encourage new drivers to sign up for low paying gigs…”

How many Boris Johnsons does it take to change a lightbulb?

The shortage of lightbulbs is part of the necessary transition to a high wattage, low lumen post brexit economy.

There is no shortage of lightbulbs, only an excessive demand for lightbulbs.

Out for a walk and could not have timed it better. Came across the most pleasant sight imaginable. :grin: A tanker was delivering to my local Tesco. Came back and topped up before a queue developed. Nothing to do with Brexit. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

This shortage is, in actuality, being caused by the British public's insistence upon the misguided opinion that these glorious Sunny Uplands actually seem to them more like a pictorial representation of William Blake's "Dark, Satanic Mills". Coincidentally, Boris Johnson has, today, welcomed Mr D.S. Mills into his cabinet as the new Minister for Putting Down. He will work in tandem with the minister for Levelling Up under the banner of "Forging Unity," or F.U. for short.

Mr Johnson was not available for comment but did send us a lovely new picture of himself, with Jennifer Arcuri's knickers in his top pocket, and an accompanying press statement (in crayon) which reads "It hasn't been anywhere near Photoshop, ego semper recta, no returns yah-boo-sucks plebs, Bunter wins again."
