Brexiteers are hoping to dumb down their argument by comparing a hard Brexit to the start of Dad’s Army.
The concept of using a sitcom to explain a hard no-deal Brexit has been welcomed as it encapsulates their complete disregard for future generations while explaining the point of people shooting themselves in the foot.
“We thought it would make sense to bring things up to date and use something contemporary like the cutting edge sitcom, ‘Dad’s Army’ to explain the situation to the masses,” explained Jacob Rees-Mogg, seemingly unaware that the sitcom is from 1968.
However, for the first time in months, the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who was portrayed as arch-rival and Mainwearing’s nemesis air warden Hodges, spoke out on the subject.
He told reporters, “I resent Jacob Rees-Mogg using me as Hodges, I’d have thought I was more like Godfrey.”
The song has been rewritten for the new enemy ‘Who do you think you are kidding Mr Junker’ and the opening credits now show the plucky United Kingdom armed with patriotic flags fending off repeated attacks from the EU.
Jeremy Corbyn, who is apparently against leaving the EU but still insisting on using the ridiculous ‘will of the people’ line, could only say, “I’m not sure it’s entirely appropriate to compare us leaving the EU to a clichéd old farce of a sitcom.
“It’s not like we’ve got a cabinet full of ministers shouting ‘Don’t panic! Don’t Panic’, others insisting we’re doomed, and Jacob Rees-Mogg shouting that the EU don’t like it up ’em.
