Brexiteers unlikely to give a rat’s arse about the European Court of Justice

Remainers may be dancing in the streets and decorating their homes with EU-approved bunting; yet the news that the UK can unilaterally cancel Brexit, has been greeted by a universal ‘meh’ from Leave Voters. The ECJ’s ruling carries as much sway with your average Brexiteer, as does the opinions of Jean-Claude Van Damme, the taste of currywurst or the third verse of La Marseillaise.

Commented one Brexiteer: ‘Ignoring the ECJ was my main reason for voting in the first place. Like with horoscopes, Banksy and Celebrity Love-Island – I’m just not interested. On the list of things I don’t care about, it’s right there at the top – just ahead of greek yoghurt.’

Unfortunately the ECJ is as relevant to Leave voters, as is a pot of marmalade is to NASA’s Mission to Mars. At best, the ECJ speaking out on Brexit is like having your ex-boyfriend insist on cutting your fringe – with nail-scissors.

Brexiteers have naturally responded with a measured and dignified ‘fingers in the ears’, following by an obligatory ‘blah, blah, blah, I’m not listening’. Said the one voter: ‘Taking back control, means never having to say you’re sorry’.
