A FAMILY has decided to treat the referendum result as an overwrought personal drama.
The Sheridan family from Nottingham is making the most of the dramatic potential of the crisis, in a thinly-veiled attempt to milk some attention out of it.
Mum Donna said: “I just keep watching the news and crying. It’s like a nuclear war except without any fatalities.
“Then my husband said ‘Don’t worry, I’m going to get us through this!’, like Kevin Costner in a PG-rated disaster movie. Except Kevin Costner wouldn’t have voted Leave.
“My husband’s name was Pete but now it’s Judas.”
13-year-old son Martin said: ““I had an argument with dad, but it fizzled out because the football came on and I was texting a friend anyway. This is how it must have been in the English Civil War.”
His younger brother Robert said: “Leaving the EU means there’s no future for the younger generation, so I’ll probably move to a thriving economy like China where they need people with HNDs in performing arts.
“That’s if a British Nazi party hasn’t taken over and put me in a camp for being a member of the Lego Club.”
