The Royal Mint rides again!

Production’s stopped at JLR
the workforce isn’t making cars
the order book is looking thin
for Landrovers and Jaguars
but we’ve got stale bread and circuses
hip hip replacement hip hoorah
you can buy a rusted Ford Cortina now and point it at the exit
we’re gonna get a special 50p for Brexit!

Calm down dear, don’t make a fuss
that simply wouldn’t do
those whopping great lies on a bus
were the opposite of true
What? Ireland’s got a border?
I hadn’t got a clue.
Look! Here’s a rusted Ford Cortina, just point it at the exit
we’re gonna get a special 50p for Brexit!

We’re standing proud and waving flags
we’ve taken back control
we’re digging for bally old victory, chaps
we’re digging a deeper hole
the growth in foodbanks warms your heart
and if you need a goal
sit in your rusted Ford Cortina and point it at the exit
we’re gonna get a special 50p for Brexit!

The government have made it plain
no magic money tree
unless of course they need your votes
and you’re the DUP
no deal no plan no problem
it’ll turn out fine, you’ll see
you’ve got a rusted Ford Cortina now please point it at the exit
we’re gonna get a special 50p for Brexit!

I need a hit of hope right now
please make it intravenous
they’re knocking out a brand new coin
I think it’s just the one between us
if you go to America
a Johnson is a penis
so fire up that rusted Ford Cortina and point it at the exit
we’re gonna get a special 50p for Brexit!

Yes, fire up that rusted Ford Cortina and point it at the exit
we’re gonna get a special 50p for Brexit.

Becky - seen, thank you. I'm one who remembers European
travel when the EU in this current political format was still
a well-kept secret. As for Ireland- still going its own way
and impeding ours!

Love it! This is a song, yes - have you put chords to it? That would make a rousing sing-a-long at the right kind of open-mic nights or folk festivals...

M.C., others have asked the same question, and others have tried to answer it, just in case your MP is too busy:
https://www.quora.com/If-Switzerland-can-maintain-an-open-border-with-the-EU-while-not-being-part-of-the-customs-union-why-couldn-t-the-UK-do-with-the-Irish-border
Of course this is just one expert's opinion I guess. Also the fact that Switzerland is part of Schengen, but neither the UK or Republic of Ireland are, must muddle things somewhat.

I keep thinking of The Strawbs - Part of the Union, Steve

Entertaining stuff! I wish I had a Cortina - even rusted it
would be a nice little earner. I've settled for a "Mitsu" instead....bordering on the practical I guess.
Talking of borders, the elephant in the room is the deafening
silence about Switzerland's next-door borders with EU entities - no problems reported. What does that say about
the one in Ireland? I'm waiting for a reply from my local
MP about that at the moment.
