Johnson remarked when talking theU.K.’s battle to depart the European Union two decades following the Brexit vote. The prime minister insisted the U.K. would escape its”manacles” such as the black Avenger.
Twitter users wasted no time in altering Johnson to a viral meme, mocking his metaphor with edited photographs and videos.
Over two decades after voters cast their ballots, the British Parliament is still fighting to find a means to depart from the E.U. without placing the nation down an economic stunt.
Lawmakers voted on a measure that could stop departing the E.U. with no bargain on immigration and trade Sept. 4. The 21 Conservative members that supported the movement were kicked from the celebration for defying the prime minister, such as Winston Churchill’s grandson Nicholas Soames.
Parliament was suspended for five months, within procedure called prorogation, only days following the vote before mid-October, which casts doubts on the probability that lawmakers will agree on a contract ahead of the nation’s Oct. 31 deadline.
