Second referendum to ask 'Do you want everything to be brilliant?'

A SECOND referendum will ask voters if they want everything to be brilliant from now on or if they are against that.

The referendum has been agreed by all major parties because a win for the ‘brilliant’ vote will be a win for them, as that is exactly what they have been arguing for all along.

A spokesman for the Electoral Commission said: “It’s what the first referendum asked but this just makes it explicit.

“The Tories are confident that they’ll win, which would mean either May’s Brexit deal, a no-deal Brexit or no Brexit whatsoever, each of which they’ll have an overwhelming mandate for.

“Whereas Labour insist that a landside ‘brilliant’ vote would immediately install Corbyn in Number 10 with a 450 majority because a brilliant future can only be achieved under his firm-but-fair-but-fuzzy hand.

“Even the Lib Dems are backing it. Pathetic really.”

Norman Steele, from Hartlepool, said: “And once we vote that everything should be brilliant, it will be. Because that’s the will of the people.”
