Realism: A mock-up of the way the ‘Brexit 50p’ would look in an honest country.

The Conservative government has hit a new level of self-parody with its announcement of a commemorative 50p piece to mark the day the UK leaves the European Union.

The coin will be inscribed “Friendship with all nations” as the UK solemnises its divorce from 27 of them.

Needless to say, the public reaction has been monumental – and the coin was only announced this morning (October 29).

TalkRADIO on Twitter asked what words people would prefer to have on the coin. Comedian David Schneider responded: “How about “Nos mentiti sunt, futuae iam sumus” or “We were lied to, now we are f***ed”?”

Of course, some shrewd characters have noticed that the announcement has come on the day Chancellor Philip Hammond reveals his latest Budget – which is bound to be nothing more than a stop-gap measure until the end of March because leaving the EU is bound to change the economy radically and there’s no way Phil the Bleak will be ready for it.

And the Budget itself…?

Good advice, that. Sadly, around 13 million people regularly show that they do permit themselves to be insulted in this way – increasing to more than 17 million in the EU referendum of 2016 that put us all in this sill mess in the first place.
