No-deal advocate suggests Brexit cookbook while endorsing smuggling

Charles Hilary Moore, in The Spectator: “Perhaps it is time for a Brexit recipe book, like those comforting wartime rationing ones full of bright ideas for dull things.” Moore is clearly unaware of the 2017 Brexit Cookbook: British Food for British People, featuring “majestically monocultural mains” and “flaky flimfam,” a.k.a. croissants. Irony isn’t dead after all. Moore also suggests “a centuries-old tradition of smuggling” could be revived, which presumably would feed the entire country, and not just an elite few who intend to reap the rewards of self-serving political chaos under the “one rule for us, another for the rest” model.
