Sur le vif

Vocable (Anglais) - - Sommaire -

Last month, The­re­sa May’s an­noun­ce­ment that the go­vern­ment is pro­po­sing to hold a Fes­ti­val of Brexit Bri­tain - which would cost £120m - in 2022 has been re­cei­ved with much scep­ti­cism and mo­cke­ry. The Bri­tish Prime Mi­nis­ter sta­ted that it would be, like the 1951 Fes­ti­val of Bri­tain, a “mo­ment of na­tio­nal re­ne­wal.” So­cial me­dia users have reac­ted with sa­ti­ri­cal pho­tos and tweets trying to ima­gine what the fes­ti­val’s key at­trac­tion would look like. Steve Bul­lock, who co­hosts the Brexit pod­cast Ca­keWatch, in­clu­ded in his list of pos­sible ac­ti­vi­ties “pin the blame on a re­mai­ner” and “raffle with prizes in­clu­ding a month’s sup­ply of in­su­lin, basic food, or an exit vi­sa.”
