The only 5 reactions you need to the government’s new Brexit slogan
As Kent residents bridle at the news that they’re to have an enormous lorry park/customs clearance area near their homes and Northern Irish businesses digest the idea of customs checks at their ports, Project Fear is looking a lot like Project Prediction.
With less than six months until the UK ceases to act under EU rules, there is yet another pithy – or a word rather like that – slogan to get our heads around – and it’s at the heart of a £93 million ad campaign.
And yes – it’s three words.
The UK has left the EU. Take action and prepare as we transition to our new relationship.
Check the guidance. Make the changes. And let’s get going. ➡️

These five reactions expressed the mood rather well.
"Not only can Britain leave the EU & have access to the single market, we'd actually get a better deal."

CHECK Brexit isn't some sort of fucking joke.
CHANGE your pounds into a stable, valuable currency. Maybe Euros.

I’ve checked the guidance. There isn’t any because you tossers didn’t prepare for a No Deal Brexit.
I’ve made the changes. They involve not buying from any business that supported Brexit.
I can’t get going because you’ve stopped my freedom of movement. https://t.co/xsz6B5208I

David Schneider wondered why the £93 million ad campaign was even necessary.
Hold on. We were promised the exact same benefits as before. Why do we need to take action? https://t.co/JDvFqgw1Mn
