John Humphries suggests all EU countries leave the EU


Veteran Radio 4 presenter, John Humphries, has suggested a radical approach to simplify the Brexit process. “Why don’t all the other EU countries leave the EU as well? That would sort out the Northern Ireland border issue at one stroke.”

When it was pointed out that this would leave 28 countries without any agreement on trade, Mr Humphries went on; “That’s easy, we can join with the other 27 countries in some kind of economic union; perhaps with common trading laws. Actually, people within the new union could work anywhere within it – that would help solve our ageing population problem.”

The suggestion has met with mixed opinions; many reporters were disappointed when Mr Humphries refused to say his catchphrase of “I’m Free!”
