Banksy's parliament artwork unveiled at Bristol museum for Brexit

The artwork, named Devolved Parliament, has been put on show at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery in time for the original deadline of March 29. A photograph of the work was posted on Banksy's Instagram account on Thursday. The caption read: 'Devolved Parliament. I made this ten years ago. Bristol museum have just put it back on display to mark Brexit day.' It ended with the quote: 'Laugh now, but one day no-one will be in charge', a reference to his 2002 piece Laugh Now, which depicts a chimpanzee wearing a sandwich board reading: 'Laugh now, but one day we'll be in charge.' Devolved Parliament was first shown at Bristol Museum in 2009 and was then bought by a private collector.

I really hope the EU will have the backbone to tell the UK to "fuck off you're out" when (not if) they ask for another extension to the deadline, unless they need it to organise another referendum giving the public the 3 options available.

 

Fucking idiots wasting everybodies time and money on their retarded venture.

Here, here!!  It's obvious that the wealty elites are dragging their feet and trying to hang on to that sweet EU titty and ignoring the will of the people who just want to run their own fucking country without a bunch of foreign assholes imposing shit on them.

"the will of the people" was not exactly the outcome of the initial referendum as there was little to none real information actually available at the time to the public, only rather brainless right wing propaganda. So not really democratic after all. 

 

Now the public could actually make an informed decision (at least way more informed than before).

  • soft as per agreement
  • hard
  • remain

The government is actually quite a bit scared about the probable outcome (probably less than a quater of the population on either "leave side") so they try to disregard it.

 

And again your last sentence is proof of your complete ignorance what the EU is about.

Look, I get it, the side you wanted to win didn't, so you've come up with all kinds of pathetic excuses to dismiss the outcome.  There was a vote and the outcome was what it was.

 

All the pearl clutching is just that.  The UK will be fine.

My remarks were regardless of what I like (I tend to favour a hard brexit by the way things are going, btw) or don't, they were taking into account choice and information. A nice analogy would be:

 

You and your friends want to have either dinner, the choice is between two restaurants R1 (chicken) and R2 (steak). You have a vote and a majority decision for restaurant R1.

Later you find out that R1 has changed ownership and is now vegan and only serves tofu chicken substitute, R2 still is there and a new restaurant R3 opened, which serves pork.

 

Do you still eat at R1 or will you have another vote on where to go to dinner?
