One for the Parodies:

Panic in Deloitte

He looked a lot like Nigel Farage, drove the Brexit van
Kept T. May in quiet seclusion, worked on PM's ban
The only survivor of the National Referendum Plan
Panic in Deloitte, I asked for an accounting graph
Should the UK go home? I wish someone would vote.
Panic in 
Deloitte

He laughed at accidental sirens that broke the EU gloom
The police had warned of repercussions
They followed none too soon
A river of strangers were shifting, turning, taking sides
Panic in Deloitte, ask for a political demograph
Should the UK not go home? I wish someone would vote.
Panic in Deloitte...


and to augment this bit of foolishness ; )

Sure, well the accountants are saying NO NO-DEAL BREXIT.

The lawyers may laugh all the way to the bank no matter what.

But it's a different story for the bean counters.

So far, things seem to play out well for Ukrainians. I've been getting back in touch with my УПА friends lately and they are rooting in, starting and growing businesses, girls getting married with British guys (not all Ukrainian woman are crazy). While many Poles are going back home. From the perspective of the British, it will look like a little reshuffling.
I guess we don't have a lot of Aussies around here these days, but the notion of your friends rooting in could be deliberately misconstrued. Although the follow-up question would be rooting in what?

Choosing scenes from a biopic of TEL as model for Brexit is a little anxiety inducing. A renown masochist with a self destructive streak a mile wide....
The point is that sometimes you have to do what is right, even if it's difficult.

And I wasn't technically laughing at it, merely pointing out the possibility of some ambiguity.

If I didn't know that politics was about duties, responsibilities and promoting peace, and read this topic, I would think that it was about sexual organs, linguistic ambiguities and Saudi Arabia.

I was going to say something along the lines of that's the nature of the OT, but then realized that we're not technically in the OT. A brief quest for a reference about "sexual organs, linguistic ambiguities and Saudi Arabia" led me here: https://al-bab.com/blog/2016/02/transge ... iddle-east. Not at all sure we are making progress here...

Maybe more people have started reading Joyce, which can't be a bad thing (Joyce >> Scott Fitzgerald). Do they use commas a lot?

Techies against Brexit
they are fretting about European innovation grants drying up, [...] The eight people partaking in this Sunday morning get-together start listing their skills: most of them are proficient in Javascript, only one person can code in Python.
