Yes, what a nice idea. The worst corona situation in Europe and unknown status after the Brexit. At least there are the weather and food, right?

Get you a lovely tikka masala on a rainy night in Stoke and see if you don't fall in love all over again, innit.

Reminds me a bit of the embedded US green card lottery ads I see when I'm reading the news from the USA. "Sure, that's where I want to move"

I started to wonder if the same would happen in the US? That if some US state decided to secede from the union the state's citizens supporting the secession would be surprised that they no longer have the same rights as US citizens and can't just go around normally moving from state to state and living wherever they want anymore?

It sounds stupid but I have to admit I would not be surprised anymore.

Last time some states tried to secede there was a bit of war about it. Not sure if Americans have become less violent and trigger happy since.

Does that guy record his entire life to twitter? Seems like a constant rolling commentary of everything he does.

 

Edit: Also, thanks for reminding me about Brexit! Had forgotten all about it 😄

lol, this is hilarious. these people sound too dumb for this story to be real, but the last few years has seriously lowered my expectations of people in general.

this little bit of info might have some corroborating evidence:

Oh no! They've deleted their account, will never get to hear the end of the story. Maybe the idiot son found out about the twitter thread.

Yeah, that really seems to go off the deep end, if he had paced it out over a few weeks maaaaybe, but he just blew his load right away

Yeah, it does get a little bit Mr Bean at the end but curious to find out if it eventually pops up in some newspaper or snopes.com. Oh well.

The beauty beneath Brexit’s bedwetting

Irvine Welsh

Quote

If democratic aliens came down from Mars and looked at the EU referendum result, they’d be compelled to take the view that the UK, hopelessly fragmented by de-industrialisation and neoliberalism, is now finished as a political entity.

This article is more than four years old.
