Celebrating Brexit Day

I note that some are calling for church bells throughout the land to ring out to celebrate Brexit Day this month.

Here at the Beaker Folk, we wanted to mark the event. But we don't have any bells. Instead we've got some local supporters of Brexit to come along and give an appropriate Brexit nine-gun salute.

In other words, they're all going to shoot themselves in the foot. Then they can tell us all what a good idea it is, and that hopping around screaming is so much better than walking.

Want to support this blog? Want a good laugh? (or to shudder at death at any rate? Then here's two ways you can keep the Archdruid in doilies...
If you want someone to share the terrors of death while making you laugh, we have "A Hint of Death in the Morning Air" - 97 poems to make you wonder, laugh or shake your head sadly. At only £1 on Kindle. Or if you want to know what the people in the pews really think, and you prefer your words printed on paper, why not try "Writes of the Church"?  The letters to the Church magazine the vicar really didn't need.


  1. Excellent! I am planning to play 'ode to Joy' at full volume.

    1. Ode to Joy is a poem by Friedrich Schiller.

      You might be playing the fourth movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, but if you do you're missing out three excellent movements that precede it.

    2. Four excellent movements.

  2. I shall be wearing a black armband.

  3. The bells could be sounded muffled.

  4. It's Frau von Delayin' I feel sorry for. Tough gig.

    Close the door after you on your way out, Ursula.
