Ignore? Ignore, you have the bloody gall to say? Ignore?

5 millions people have had their lives held in limbo for years because of it.

The UK’s devoted 3 years of government almost entirely to it to the exclusion of all else.

It’s spent billions and the economy’s lost billions because of it.

Businesses have moved or made plans to move, laid people off or plan to, spent fortunes in preparation and for No Deal contingencies.

Every local council has spent time and money on it.

The NHS has been trying to work out how to keep staff and ensure medicine and medical equipment supplies.

Across the EU, every Member State has had to prepare their citizens and businesses for Brexit, and work out how to offset their losses and, in some cases, stop their roads being turned into lorry parks.

(The UK has turned roads into lorry parks).

The media’s output has been overwhelmingly focussed on it. The lies and misinformation have changed media and politics possibly forever.

The police and security services have been trying to make sure essential cooperation can continue.

Supermarkets usually in competition are asking to be allowed to cooperate to make sure there’s enough food.

They’ve been trying to work out how to make sure how to keep school dinners going, for fuck’s sake.

Don’t you come complaining that it’s being ignored.

The only ignoring that’s been going on has been Brexit’s cheerleaders ignoring what an almighty fuck up the whole wretched thing’s been since the start.

Ignore in-fucking-deed!
