A MARITAL argument has turned unexpectedly ugly after a man told his wife she was ‘like Brexit’.
The argument between 31-year-old Joseph Turner and wife Carla began over a pair of shoes, but has now expanded to cover the UK’s exit from the European Union and its economic ramifications.
Joe Turner said: “You’re like fucking Brexit, you are. All big talk and promises but when the bills come you’ve got no fucking money.
“One minute we need to take back control and remortgage the house, the next you’d always said that we might have to sell my motorbike. Fucking Brexit.”
Carla replied: “How dare you call me Brexit. You’re Brexit.
“You’re always like ‘I’m gonna do something really stupid now because I’m in a bad fucking mood, and then I’ll refuse to admit it was a dickhead idea’. Totally Brexit.”
The couple made-up two hours later after realising that no matter how bad things are at least they are not Scottish.
