'The Brexorcist' - Twitter reacts predictably to Halloween Brexit
'Brexit has haunted us long enough.'
'So, Halloween it is. Appropriate for a Cabinet of the Living Dead.'
'Halloween Brexit - because nothing could be spookier.'
'The nightmare never ends.'
'What will everyone be dressing as for Brexit Halloween? I’m going as an indicative vote.'
This morning's announcement that the UK has been given a 'flexible' Brexit extension until October 31st has predictably been met with an outpouring of utter despair from politicians, political correspondents, and regular people across the UK and Ireland.
Nowhere is this despair and frustration clearer than on Twitter with the platform's timelines exploding in blur of puns and memes.
What is there to do at this stage but laugh?
So we face another 6 months of this ghoulish and grotesque never-ending circus with nothing being resolved. Theresa May will then go on another begging tour of Europe to try and prevent a Halloween Brexit. pic.twitter.com/czSPoLfYvi— James Melville (@JamesMelville) April 11, 2019
I asked the PM whether she thinks her party will consider a Halloween Brexit date a trick or a treat... not even a lol I’m afraid.— Paul Brand (@PaulBrandITV) April 11, 2019
