Twitter users joke about Halloween calling it ‘The Brexorcist’


On Thursday the UK was given a Brextension until 31 October, social media users note the date is also Halloween, and one user has called it “The Brexorcist.”

Journalist Graeme Demianyk said, “Brexit delayed until Halloween? TAKE BAT CONTROL.”

Historian Dr Fern Riddell tweeted, “Are…are you kidding. Brexit has been moved to Halloween? MY FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR? THE SEASON THAT KEEPS ME GOING? THE ONE GOOD, GLORIOUS AND PURE THING I HAD LEFT?”

Actor Reece Shearsmith perhaps echoed the views of many when he urged politicians: “Don’t you dare drag Halloween into Brexit.”

Conservative councillor Stephen Canning said: “What will everyone be dressing as for Brexit Halloween? I’m going as an indicative vote.”

Another twitter user likened Theresa May with a laughing skull.
