The cry went up, "Winston's back".
We will send a gunboat to Brussels to save the Empire.

The natives will be ever so pleased to have us back and want us to steal their raw materials for shipment back to the Mother Country. They love reading about the big houses and estates the "Gintry" are building with their money and the trinkets they gave us were lovely.

Pass the sick bag Jacob.

Chaos isn't a theory anymore, Bob. It's now official policy!

Is there an echo in here? That's what happens when you have to lick the dregs from the empty Black Bush tank

I'm away for a lie down in the shaft tunnel until this madness is over

A government worthy of the title: Mumble, Fumble and Bumble.

(And my humble apologies to those who crumble under my rumble.)

Boris and Cummings are right.
Britain has been held back by fuddy-duddy thinking for too long, it's time to do away with 19th Century concepts such as;

My word is my bond
In utmost good faith
Shake on a deal
The rule of law

Once we have ditched our neighbours our Miss Truss will make amazing deals with our friends in the red bits on the world map.

Happy days.

I think that would have been a true continuation of what was before our brief inclusion in Europe. Why should any of them want to speak to us after that inclusion which made their association with the great white queen across the water put them at a considerable trade disadvantage. Sentiment apart I would expect them all to raise two fingers and finish every rendition of 'Rule Britannia' with la pernacchia fortississimo.
