Brexit in doubt as Isle of Wight not included in referendum

isle of wight brexit vote

The future of Brexit has been called into doubt this morning following revelations that no polling stations were set up on the Isle of Wight during the referendum of June 2016.

The news came to light this morning where slow internet speed and delays ferrying newspapers across the Solent have meant many Island residents only finding out about Brexit this week-end.

One Shanklin resident said “We saw some people setting up something in a church and standing outside with clipboards and rosettes. But it takes 20 years to get accepted round here, so I didn’t speak to them. Now we’re in a position where we don’t know where to point when we’re asked where the mainland is.”

However, ardent Brexiter Jacob Rees-Mogg said “This is ultimately a technicality. We can’t ask them to vote now because so many people have changed their minds on Brexit now and we are only interested in people’s views in June 2016. Any other opinion within any different time frame would be an attack on democracy.”

The normally outspoken Daily Mail which has exclusive newspaper rights on the island has remained unusually silent on the matter.

Prime Minister Theresa May has also insisted that the process of Brexit is in safe hands. “We might have another referendum but if just one solitary person still wants to leave the EU then that is what we should do. Anything else would be defying, denying and desecrating the will of the people.” She explained.

“Basically we want to leave the EU, go out on the piss, come home and be overly affectionate, then promise never to do it again and then do the same thing the following Friday. Well we don’t want to, but we’re going to. It’s the principle of the thing. We’re fed up of the EU gravy train bureaucrats telling us what time to go to bed.” She added.
