A COMMITTED Brexiter has yet to find a street party celebrating Britain’s very own independence day.
Joe Turner, from Stoke-on-Trent, who still asks strangers in pubs to explain to him why Nigel Farage is not prime minister, expected to open his front door and see trestle tables being set up but instead found it eerily quiet.
He said: “No bunting, no flags, no plates of sausage rolls. Nothing. It’s like the Diamond Jubilee all over again.
“I was already disappointed when I called the council and found there weren’t any Spitfire flypasts planned, apparently because of ‘lack of budget’ – Marxists – but I had faith in a spontaneous uprising of joy.
“This isn’t natural. I know everyone decent in the country is jubilant about Brexit from dawn until dusk, so there must be some kind of Remoaner Project Fear police keeping them inside.
“I’ll just drink a load of lager and stand in the street feeling really proud.”
Meanwhile, neighbour Martin Bishop said: “None of the churches are holding memorial services even though it’s the anniversary of the great disaster. I’m bereft.”
