Brexit Advert By British Conservatives Gets Hilariously ‘Fixed’ By The Internet

The UK is scheduled to leave the EU on 31 October, but supporters of Brexit think the date could have come sooner. Among them is the Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ), which has released a graphic mocking the Labour Party’s “confusion” about the transition.
Earlier this month, the CCHQ, where the British Conservative Party is headquartered, published an image comparing conservatives’ view versus that of the Labour Party about “the path to Brexit.”
Alex Wickham, senior political correspondent at BuzzFeed UK, describes the ad as “possibly the boldest election advert in history.”

According to the graphic, the Labour Party approaches Brexit as if it were a labyrinth, rife with “confusion” and “delays.” The British Conservative Party, on the other hand, believes there’s only one necessary way to approach Brexit: just get on with it.
The concerns of skeptics aren’t baseless, as a £100 million campaign launched by the UK government has been criticized for not offering enough clarity about the split.
Creative internet users have thus ridiculed the new advert, photoshopping it to mirror the sentiments of people who don’t believe “the path to Brexit” is as straightforward as the one depicted by the CCHQ. Have a chuckle at the memes below.
