SCIENTISTS have confirmed that if Brexit was a drug it would be the popular livestock tranquiliser ketamine.
The Institute for Studies compared drug experiences with political phenomena and found that Britain’s exit from the EU most closely resembled a hellish ‘ket-hole’.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “New Labour was definitely ecstasy. A ridiculous, meaningless high followed by a dismal comedown filled with self-loathing.
“Thatcherism was, of course, cocaine. Mind-blowingly self obsessed that was incredibly painful to watch for anyone not on it.”
He added: “But Brexit has to be ‘Special K’. A wild, swirling ket-hole that makes you wonder what exactly you’ve taken and you’re pretty sure that the whole thing will send you over the edge into what feels like a bottomless abyss.
“Aside from that it’s looking pretty positive.”
