Fun Online Polls: Hard Brexit

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The results to last week’s Fun Online Poll were as follows:

Which kind of Brexit would you like?

Hard – 63%
Soft – 4%
Runny – 3%
Scrambled – 10%
Poached – 1%
Fried – 4%
Burned – 8%
The vegetarian option please – 8%

That’s conclusive, a good turnout of 120 and thank you to everybody who took part. Other suggestions included “Burned bridges”, “Over easy”, “Scorched earth”, “We knead to make dough with a Bistro Brexit”, “Fully blitzed like a smoothie” and “Quick”. I’m sure that most of those aren’t egg recipes, but hey.
What is interesting though is that we are now seeing exactly the same response as we had to Project Fear; if TPTB over egg the pudding, then people just go the other way out of sheer bloody mindedness.

So while the Three Brexiteers and UKIP are merrily banging on about Hard Brexit (whatever that means), it’s not the UK as a whole who is pushing for this. As far as I can see, it is Merkel, Hollande, Juncker et al who are doing political grandstanding and saying they can’t and won’t make compromises, it’s all or nothing etc.

As a moderate Leaver i.e. pretty much representative of UK mainstream opinion (for once), it seems inevitable that if the EU leaders are going to try and bully us and ignore the possible cost to their own economies, this will merely provoke the response in the UK that the EU can go f— themselves, which is not really an optimal outcome for anybody.

So that’s this week’s Fun Online Poll.
