(I heard the title suggested by a caller on Radio 5Live this morning and I thought, "There's a poem there!")


God Bless Ye Merrie Brexit Men whom nothing shall dismay

Your triumph of democracy was Referendum Day

Ye saved us all from Europe’s powers but stuffed Theresa May

While yon Corbyn just rubs his hands with joy

Unbridled joy

Yes, he rubs his hands with gladness and with joy.


Ye plans for immigration look unlikely now, I guess

And neither will ye see a skerrit for ye NHS

The issue of the border across Ireland too’s a mess

Oh, and let’s not forget the Brexit bill

“Nothing until

You have settled your outstanding Brexit bill”.


God Bless Ye Merrie Brexit Men ye thought ye needn’t pay

But never thought of consequences if we didn’t Stay

But simply said “Get over it.  You lost” was all ye’d say

Yea, ye won, Leavers, once the spin was spun

But what have ye done?

Ye have won but ye are clueless what ye’ve won.

Thanks, Leon. But I've never believed that "others" have the monopoly of shite ideas. We all do.

Thanks, Fred. Although it does reflect my own views on Brexit I do adopt a blunderbuss approach to parody. I've posted proBrexit stuff, anti-Conservative, anti-Labour, anti-Corbyn, anti-May etc. If they're stood up, they're fair game.

The short answer, Jemima, is that nobody knows. Which, to my mind, was a bloody good reason for not voting "Leave".

If only those we negotiate with would roll over and do what we want. But in 40 years of industrial relations it never happened for me. I don't think that's how it works.

Shades of ye minstrels like Alan A'Dale: of Robin Hood's
gang who were not too keen on those other interfering
Europeans...the Normans...and what they cost us!
Fun as always JC - well done.
PS - the money for the NHS might get there quicker IF we
didn't have to keep paying the EU while we're still involved. As for
the money the EU demands, how about it pays us for the 61 years of debt we owed to the US for fighting for the freedom that Europe enjoys?
