Heroic Brexit

Might be fun ...
  [vote for,

The actual Brexit negotiations are likely to be rather dull.

But they don't need to be.

Apart from the obvious possibility of reviving the It's A Knockout format, televising the talks in an entertaining form could be a nice little earner.

One idea would be to dress up the EU team as Cybermen, Daleks, Silurians, Autons etc. and then send the Doctor in his current incarnation (and TARDIS) to comprehensively trounce them.

Alternatively, dressed as mediaeval oriental warriors, the EU negotiators would form a circle around the lone British hero, then take turns to run at him (or her) screaming, before each being dispatched by a single blow.

And there's the version with Ewan McGregor versus a platoon of Imperial Stormtroopers.

Which ever way it's done, it's got to be better than the actual talks.

       The forthcoming Muppet Brexit Movie looks promising, but I'm holding out for Hangover - The Brexit, and also the Mel Brooks classic Life Stinks II, where Scotland trades places with a minority insignificant EU member state that nobody cares about and gets bullied by everyone else.

       I think Malcolm Tucker might be a more effective tool.

       What the Farage?

       I've never really understood why the TARDIS was called the TARDIS. Yes, it supposedly stands for "time and relative distance in space", but that's a bit like calling a train a "linear distance on a largely flat surface".

       No , it would be a ldoalfs which is unpronounceable!

       //linear distance on a largely flat surface   

       that bit on the Victoria line between Blackhorse Rd and Seven Sisters (?) is definitely not of the flat persuasion..

       // distance //   

       The "D" stands for 'Dimensions'.

       Hmm, reading the Trikon Deception, Ben Bova, 1992 and and in it Britain decides to leave the EU cos of East European countries joining the EU....   

       It all means something...
