Sur le vif
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.”
