16 general election sub-plots to the long-running Brexit soap opera
The latest episode of Prorogation Street saw long-time character Boris Johnson try to strike a deal with his troublesome work colleague, Jeremy Corbyn by offering more time for MPs to study his deal if they agree to a December 12th general election. Jezza metaphorically punched back with “Take no-deal off the table, you slaaaaag!” whilst in no way having spoken those actual words, and viewers were left itching for the next episode.
Here’s how the news was shared.

Do you think Boris Johnson was trying to ask Santa for an erection for Christmas, but as usual just fucked up on the admin? #GeneralElection

Words cannot express how horrible a December 12th election would be, like an advent calendar with a turd hidden in it.

"You cannot keep voting because you didn't like the last result" has been the central charge levelled at the campaign for a #PeoplesVote, by the same people now demanding a THIRD General Election in four years. -AA
