Brexit was supposed to happen today, apparently. Well, we were originally supposed to leave the EU in March 2019, but when then-PM Theresa May couldn’t get her deal through Parliament, it was moved to May. Then October 31st. Happy Halloween, friends. Our current PM Boris Johnson hasn’t exactly been a model example of competence, and now he’s requested another extension until January 31, 2020. I swear, Chinese Democracy was less delayed than this. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. F*ck Brexit. It’s bad enough we’re getting a General Election before Christmas because Boris has to spoil everything.

Conservative MP Mark Francois claimed that ‘this country will explode’ if Brexit doesn’t go ahead, so of course the internet reacted accordingly today with #BritainHasExploded.

Be careful out there today, British comrades. It’s hellish. Apparently, people are wearing strange costumes and demanding sweets. What kind of madness is this?
