If it’s news to me, it must be news to you!
Brexit means.. er.. whatever you want it to
There hasn’t been much to smile about as we watched the slow-motion car crash that is Brexit so even more politically cynical Sunday Round-up than usual.
But I did spot this Brexit UncertainTEA cup and saucer which you can use to predict how things might eventually shake out by reading the tea leaves.

Happy with your purchase?
As you will have gathered, I’m none too happy with the way things are going because like the politicians and the pundits I don’t see any way out of this mess that isn’t going to outrage one half of the country or the other. Jonathan Pie articulates my own anger better than I can.
And that’s the problem – the two halves of the country at each other’s throats as we saw when the likes of Anna Soubury were accosted by far-right activists for daring to have opposing views. Jonathan Pie again, asking whether we’ve reached peak Nazi.
But should you be in need of a smile
And some enlightenment, I recommend The Story of Brexit by Ladybird Books. It made me laugh as a Christmas present, but I’m not laughing now.
