‘BREXITEER’ is the most ridiculous English word yet created, experts have confirmed.
The Institute for Studies said that ’Brexiteer’ was more ludicrous than ‘glamping’, ‘velfie’ and ‘starchitect’ and that Britain should be embarrassed and ashamed for allowing the word to exist.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “If rappers were middle-class white people from the home counties, they would call their kids ‘Brexiteer’.
“As far as we understand ‘Brexiteers’ themselves love the word. Perhaps they like to imagine themselves as ‘buccaneers’, with a cutlass and an earring and a fancy hat.”
With the referendum now over some have questioned whether the word can survive in the long term.
Professor Brubaker added: “I suspect it will live on in Scotland, Liverpool, Manchester and Bristol where it’s already become a visceral term of abuse.”
