Does anyone remember Brexit?

I honestly can’t remember the last time I heard anyone talk about.

Good thing probably.

Oh, halcyon days when Brexit was all we had to fret about, instead of global pandemics, food shortages, world economies crashing, ........

Exactly!

I think it must be who you are mixing with and chatting to.
I have spoken to three "strangers" about it this week so far (two who instigated the conversation), as well as a number of family members.
I don't think a day has gone by that it's not been talked about since 2016!

It might have died a death on GN but in the real world it's still very current.

It’s not just on social media where brexit has died a death, I can’t remember the last time I heard it mentioned on the news.

Understandable of course. This virus really has put things into perspective.

Sounds vaguely familiar. Was it something to do with breakfast cereal?

Kandinsky On Jeremy Vine earlier this week. An Australian journo working for the Sun accused other panelists of trying to stop Brexit when the question of extending the period for talks because of the corona virus came up. They tried to explain but he refused to understand - continued to insist that they wanted to stop us leaving. Which of course we can't because we've already left.

Strange that we're in the process of cutting ourselves off from an organisation that cares about things such as hygiene, food standards and workers rights and desperately trying to ally ourselves with any country that will trade with us.
