A man who has spent every Brexit discussion for the last two years telling everyone they need to get over it because we’re leaving the EU on 29th March, then 12th April, then the end of May has this morning updated his stock response.
After Theresa May secured an extension to the Brexit deadline that could see the nation remain in the EU until the end of October, those who have been crowing about the 12th April seem to be elsewhere.
Simon Williams had spent two years telling everyone that we’re leaving on 29th March ‘no matter what you snowflakes think’ in just about every online discussion in which he’s been made to look foolish, and he was flatly refusing to accept reality this morning.
He told us, “Leaving on the 12th April is the law, and laws never ever change,” admirably demonstrating the average Brexiters tenuous grasp of the legislative branch of government.
He concluded, “You can’t change the law just because the people who change laws want to change the law, that’s undemocratic!
“Anyway, you snowflakes need to realise we’ll definitely be leaving the EU on 31st October, so you losers better suck it up and get over it!”
Meanwhile, a growing number of thoroughly deluded souls have decided that they will remove themselves from EU jurisdiction on the 12th April by shouting “I declare independence!” from the nearest rooftop.
Constitutional expert Charles Matthews told us, “Yeah, that’s not how any of this works. Sharing a meme on Facebook doesn’t change your nationality, or your legal designation.
“Look, if they’re really unhappy with the laws of the land, they could always go and live in a country that isn’t inside the EU – after all, they keep telling us there are plenty of them available.”
