The Lex­i­con Kamikaze Brexit

The Irish Times - Business - - INTERVIEW -

Kamikaze Brexit is this week’s Brexit, cour­tesy of Frances O’Grady, the gen­eral sec­re­tary from Bri­tish union TUC, who also de­scribed Theresa May’s ap­proach to Brexit as a “let­ter to Santa”.

Kamikaze Brexit speaks for it­self, so in­stead let’s re­cap its pre­de­ces­sors: Hard Brexit, Soft Brexit, Open Brexit, Red-White-and-Blue Brexit, Cliff-Edge Brexit, Brexit Lite, Brexit Plus, Poached Brexit, Fried Brexit, Full English Brexit, Fan­tasy Brexit, Mis­ery Brexit and – now that think tanks are propos­ing that the Border be pa­trolled by drones – Al­ter­na­tive Re­al­ity Brexit.

Dear Theresa, are you sure? Love, Santa.
