SHRINE TO BREXIT
Up some steps, sitting at the top of a lonely island lump, is a Shrine to Brexit. A roof canopy made from the hair of Boris Johnson is held up by four doric columns with a Union Jack protruding from the top. At the altar underneath sits the central propaganda slogan: Take Back Control.
Brexit became a quasi-religious movement whereby Brexiteers dogmatically believed in its delivery despite the overwhelming evidence indicating the economic harm leaving the largest trading bloc in the world would cause. Before the deal was settled a matter of days ago and the transition period came to an end, support to remain part of the EU far outweighed the support to leave (according to all major national polls), yet we still drove towards a hard Brexit under the leadership of Boris and his Tory government. A belief in something that was so divisive and so maligned, that was campaigned on a sea of false promises and lies.
