It’s an arrow, not a house that’s fallen over confirms Brexit Party

Brexit Party House

The Brexit Party have clarified that their logo is an arrow, representing leaving Europe, and not a house that has fallen on its side, representing something built on shaky foundations. 

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party has been forced to take timeout from preparing to contest the European Parliamentary elections to clarify the symbolism of the new party’s logo.

Commentators in some quarters have noted that the Brexit Party’s logo has more than a passing resemblance to a child’s drawing of a house that has fallen on its side. 

Charles Fishlove-Smyth, Professor of Symbolism and Mixed Metaphors at Oxford University, says that it is clearly a house.

“There’s a small door that represents the restriction of free movement into the UK, it is predominately white, and it appears to have collapsed, presumably due to being built on weak foundations.” the professor says.

While the professor makes a good point, Brexit Party officials have been quick to defend their emblem.

“It’s an arrow, definitely a big white arrow, and it represents leaving the EU.” said Brexit Party press officer Sally Hargreaves-Wiltshire. 

“See it’s sharp on one end like Saint George’s dragon-slaying spear and it is round like his shield, and it’s pointing resolutely to the right.

“What it represents could not be clearer.” 


Trump threatens intelligence blackout after Daniel Craig is spotted with Huawei phone

Daniel Craig James Bond 007

The US President, Donald Trump, has threatened to stop sharing his intelligence with the UK after seeing pictures of Daniel Craig using a Huawei phone.

Craig, 55, was pictured using the suspect device on the set of the 25th James Bond movie, which is being shot in Oracabessa bay on the northern coastline of Jamaica.

Bond 25, announced four days ago, will be the British actor’s last outing as the globe-trotting British secret agent James Bond. 

Security chiefs on both sides of the Atlantic are believed to have concerns over Huawei after a Skype call, leaked last week, revealed details of the Chinese telecom giant’s involvement in building UK’s 5G mobile phone infrastructure.

President Trump is said to have characteristically got both the wrong end of the stick and acted impulsively after seeing pictures of Craig with the phone on Fox News, telling aides.

“That’s it I’m not sharing my intelligence with them Britishians [sic] anymore. 

“My intelligence is the best, a lot of people say that, they really do, but I don’t want that Miss Mayflower leaking it all to the Japanese.”

After being reminded by a senior staffer, who has now been fired, that Huawei is a Chinese firm and that it is “Mrs May” not "Miss Mayflower", the President Tweeted.

“If the Brits are gonna give their top spy 007 a junk Huawei phone, then they can’t have my intelligence anymore. So sad. 

“Miss Mayflower should get in touch with my friend Tim Apple and get Bond an all American iPhone.”
