Hulk metaphor lapped up by Brexit voters who are definitely not stupid
BORIS Johnson’s hulk metaphor has been welcomed by Brexit supporters who are not stupid and knew exactly what they were voting for.
In a Sunday newspaper interview, the prime minster compared Britain leaving the EU to the Incredible Hulk – a raging, destructive, irrational beast – breaking free from some chains.
He was immediately ridiculed by nine-year-olds.
But Brexit voter Roy Hobbs, 62, from Stoke, said: “Hulk? I love it. I think that might be the most amazing thing I’ve ever heard. We will break free. Like the wonderful Hulk.
“I am going to repeat it all day, every day for weeks. And when we do leave the EU I shall paint myself green and run the down the street waving my arms and screaming as loudly as possible.
“And yet, the London media liberal elite think we’re all idiots.”
