Tory Brexit Blues festival
Ok, so your libraries are being closed, along with your sure start centre... you're being asked to fund pupils' activity because of your local school's budget shortfall... the nearby hospital A&E is threatened with closure due to cuts...
Relax. The Tories are planning a 'Festival of Brexit Britain' in 2022, costing a mere £120 million.
If Maybot remains at the helm, it could be a dystopian version of the 1951 Festival of Britain, featuring Lancaster aircraft carpet-bombing the country's infrastructure and a medieval castle with the drawbridge closed to EU workers. Can't wait!
