It's almost impossible to make up something about Brexit that is crazier than the reality it already is.


The British government just gave a £14 million contract to a British shipping company to prepare for a Hard Brexit disaster in which the country runs out of food and medicine. The shipping company they awarded this contract to doesn't actually have any ships.

Or facilities.

... Or experience in running a shipping company.

What they did have was significant debts, that they paid off with the injection of taxpayers cash, and the other thing they did was immediately pay the two board directors a salary of £85,000 each.

So far, so very corrupt and incompetent.

But it gets even worse.

Turnss out this companies T&Cs are copied from those of a pizza deliver company:

Pizza Delivery


So the British governments planning for Brexit involved handing over responsibility (and 14 million quid) for shipping to a company with no ships, whose legal terms were just copy/pasted from some local pizza delivery company.


Under normal circumstances, this should bring down the government, for corrupt incompetence. But I don't suppose it will, these are no longer normal times.

It's all fine. It just means that we're gonna get a free pizza delivered as an incentive if we visit Europe via ferry after Brexit is finalised.

The directors all seem to have a history in shipping, but I would bet a few beers on there being a big donation or two from them to the Tory party in recent years.

So if emergency relief and foreign aid are 30 minutes late it's free!

But brexit is only leaving the EU. Not the rest of the world...?
I’m almost positive that the rest of the commonwealth would help out if necessary. I think we’d have to.
Most probably also know how to make really good pizza.

FWIW, the UK is expected to fall behind France for a year or two in world GDP rankings, but then take them back over all the way to 2025. Germany, Italy and France are all predicted to slow down. So their might be a year of suckage, but it won't last long.
