A Prayer of Repentance for the Leave Vote (with footnotes)

Archdruid: And so we pray forgiveness for the hardheartedness with which we1 have voted.

All: Knowing we have thrown our country into chaos, we repent of all our sins of thinking it was a good idea to give the ruling classes a good kicking.2

Archdruid: We repent of the arrogance that led us3 to reject Mrs Merkel and all her works.

All: And to teach the French a thing or two.4

Archdruid: And we repent that the old and gray have rejected the wisdom of the young5.

All: And we reject all accusations of racism6.

Archdruid: And so we formally promise that, if by some miracle we get another chance to vote on this, we will show wisdom, charity and courage this time7.

All: Amen8

4 Though we're still quite pleased about that.
5 If only they'd looked up from their Xboxes we're sure they would have been very instructive.
6 We hope we still have visas for plumbers.
7 Questions are being asked about the way the petition for another referendum has more than 45,000 votes from Husborne Crawley.
8 We'd do it again. Not only have we upset the Germans, the French and the whole EU infrastructure - we've got rid of Cameron and might do for Corbyn as well. Just a shame about that embarrassment Farage.
