I might be there. Or might not get the energy to go. But let's have a laugh, shall we? Let's mate the good old British humour with the endearingly cool Mumsnet slang.
Please do bring it on.

"How will Tarquin have his gap year now?!?"
"Luvvies united against democracy!"

MakemineaGandT Sat 18-Mar-17 07:00:12

I might go for:

"I Remoan For Britain" grin

We're fucked

Maybe just "FCUKED" - in big letters against a st George's cross - that could work.

It’s a bit literary (and probably elitist) but how about “Saxon and Norman and Dane are we”? It’s from Tennyson’s poem “A Welcome” making a point about English mixed genetic heritage. No one will get it though … I can’t be there but I’ll wear my EU-Union Jack badge.

Your Saxon, Norman and Dane is good! I was really saying much the same on one of the other threads - that England is really 3 countries, North, South and West, which more or less corresponds. Amazing really that things go back so long.

Back to the topic. I thought of:
You can't count Mrs May - 17 million does not equal 65 million.
My son told me that was too wordy and not snappy enough.

So I have downloaded a poster with a picture of Farage, May and Johnson, with the caption Never was so much ruined for so many by so few

Peregina, I like that - do you have a link?

Breadwidow Sat 18-Mar-17 09:08:28

Iamwendy: take it you want us to be totally fucked FOREVER by the will of a slim majority on one day?

Peregrina Sat 18-Mar-17 09:15:34

I have lost the link now, but here is the jpg I downloaded.

'Please Release Me'

walruswhiskers Sat 18-Mar-17 09:32:07

Though I love Tarquins gap year I'd go with summat simple.

EU brexiters don't speak for me

Valentine2 Sat 18-Mar-17 10:35:32

You lot are awesome. grin
I am thinking along the lines of posting a puffed up and red faced Farage, May and perhaps BoJo with somerhing catchy like "Immigrationitis: a stomach congestion" with smaller letters underneath saying "symptoms: chewing facts, licking Trump's, suicidal plans"

Valentine2 Sat 18-Mar-17 10:39:39

Your son is right. It's about making it fun, simple and very catchy. That's how they swayed the vote. That's where it hurts.
i will keep thinking on it.

I love 'Saxon and Norman and Dane are we'!

Olympiathequeen Sat 18-Mar-17 10:43:21

Can't understand the 'never has so much been ruined by so few' reference. Last time I looked there was a majority for Leave 😀

IamWendy Sat 18-Mar-17 10:43:26

How about a picture of a pram, with dummies and toys being thrown out of it? Or a simple white tee-shirt with 'this is my tantrum tee-shirt' written in it?

Valentine2 Sat 18-Mar-17 10:45:49

Mind your own thread. grin and the sentences of your post don't have a connection anyway
I invite Leavers to post here too on the condition that it's funny.
Places yes, it's really good.

Valentine2 Sat 18-Mar-17 10:48:16

Then you will have to bring on a march to suit that poster. grin

How about a picture of a pram, with dummies and toys being thrown out of it?

Good one. With the slogan:

"How could 17 million have neglected their kids' futures and got away with it?"

Not snappy enough? hmm

How could i make Orwell's Speaking the Truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act? banner friendly?

Valentine2 Sat 18-Mar-17 11:00:12

I think we can work on it. 🤔 I am on it.

twofingerstoEverything Sat 18-Mar-17 11:13:04

Brexshit means Brexshit

twofingerstoEverything Sat 18-Mar-17 11:16:55

...will also be wearing my Citizen of Nowhere t-shirt.

"Speaking the Truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act?"

Struggling with banner friendly though.
