For all the doom and gloomsters out there, we had some fabulous economic news this week. Last month’s figures show that, thanks to Platty Jubes, sales in the food sector were up a whopping three per cent. Granted, this was almost entirely accounted for by alcohol, but I think we can confidently chalk this up as a Brexit benefit. Only since throwing off the shackles of the EU have we, as a nation, felt able to express our unanimous love and support for the Royal Family by skulling crates of Stella in the hot tub. In republican France, for instance, a four-day public holiday can only be granted by the town’s Chief Bureaucrat if it has been signed off in a plenary session of the European Parliament. Surely, Nigel Farage is due a peerage from Her Maj in recognition of his services to patriotic binge drinking if nothing else.
