Your guide to living in fascist Britain
HAVE you ever wondered what it would be like if Britain was an undemocratic, fascist state? Either wait a few months, or prepare early with our tips:
Join the blackshirts immediately
There’s no telling how long Britain will be fascist, so it’s best to go with the flow and prove your loyalty to fascism early. Benefits often include: better food, better career prospects, at least one free shirt. Just try not to do anything too evil in front of witnesses, in case it doesn’t work out.
Authoritarian societies love informers, and most Britons already hate their neighbours with a vengeance so it’s the perfect opportunity to take revenge for minor slights by sending them to a camp. Also it’s only right that Gavin at work finally faces justice for his really annoying laugh.
Practise mindless hero worship
Fascists tend to blindly worship a leader, but it’s going to be difficult for any of us to start with Johnson. Even the Brexiters would prefer Farage. Practise saying good things about lesser twats – Judge Rinder, Sarah Vine, John Terry – in preparation for the dark hypothetical day when we all shout ‘HAIL BORIS!’
Remember it will be a half-a*sed British form of fascism
Most things Britain does, whether it’s football, rail services or government, are a bit crap. So if you have to attend a Nuremberg-style rally, don’t worry. It won’t go on long because people will be sloping off early to go to the pub or collect their Tesco shop.
Think twice about joining any resistance movement
Being part of the resistance looks heroic in war films, but in real life it’s a massive hassle. Ask yourself if you’re even capable of managing a work-life-blowing-up-bridges balance. Once you factor in the risk of torture you’ll find cowardice is the best option.
