REMAINERS have admitted that unprecendented British sporting success the first summer after Brexit is not doing their cause any favours.
Liberals yet to get over leaving the EU have found it hard to celebrate the victories of Emma Raducanu or the British Olympic and Paralympic teams because it makes Britain going it alone look like a great idea.
Joseph Turner of Bristol said: “I’ve sort of cheered them on, obviously, but I can’t help feeling that the wrong people are cheering much more loudly for incorrect nationalistic reasons.
“Point out Emma Raducanu’s ethnic origins and suddenly you’re the dick because everyone else is proud of her being British and you’re doing the thing the racists do. But for the right reasons. But still.
“Has the England football team, or Wales and Scotland come to that, ever performed so well as after Brexit? No. Is that just coincidence? Yes it is, you thick bigoty bastards.
“Winning the US Open is all very well, but let’s focus on empty shelves and airport queues and roaming charges rather than sport. Unless we lose in which case it’s Brexit’s fault.”
He added: “I wouldn’t mind us winning the Ryder Cup, because that proves we can only succeed by co-operating with Europe. But then again golf is for dicks.”
