Everyone who voted Leave to get £1,000 worth of chips

EVERY single one of the UK’s 17.4 million Leave voters is to get a tax-free lump sum of £1,000 to spend on chips.

The Brexit chip dividend, which will be handed out on December 31st, has been designed to help the ‘left-behind’ and is nothing to do with politics, according to communities secretary Robert Jenrick.

He continued: “A ‘Brexit bribe’? Frankly I find that offensive. No, we’re just trying to help the economically disadvantaged make a real difference in their lives and alleviate poverty. This is what Labour would have promised if they had the guts.

“They get a grand for chips at the end of this year, another grand in six months, and a per diem allowance, all for lovely chips.”

Roy Hobbs, from Stoke-on-Trent, said: “Does British Gas accept payment in chips?”

The cash will be raised by a windfall tax on everyone who voted Remain.
