Free For Brexit Workers

Free is an anti-Brexit greeting card featuring a mockup of a World War II Ministry Of Information leaflet urging housewives to leave buses and trains free for Brexit workers. To clarify, the text reads ‘Housewives! Please finish travelling by 4 o’ clock and leave the buses and trains free for Brexit workers. Issued by the Brexit emergency committee’.

The satire is that Britain will be reduced to a war footing. It will be a country where everyone will need to work in a regimented way to keep the country from going under. The regimented work will be demeaning and repetitive. It will be drone work for a workforce that has been turned into drones. Furthermore, no one will be free to question the directives from the ‘committee’ because everything will be rigidly enforced.

The Situation Will Drag On Interminably

The situation will drag on seemingly forever until no one can remember a different time. Moreover, the courts will be suspended and turned into tribunals where judges will carry out directives to enforce the master plan. There will be sporadic rebellions of huddled masses and of those yearning to be free. But they will quickly be rounded up and sent into the fields to pick fruit. Meanwhile a noticeable absence of foreign languages spoken on the streets of Britain will give way to something else. Above all it will give way to a deathly silence as no one will feel safe to talk in public. Likewise, public transportation will falter and break down.

Grey-Faced People Walking Listlessly

And the streets will be filled by grey-faced people walking listlessly to their required occupations. Housewives will leave what is left of the transportation free for essential war Brexit workers. In conclusion, the leaden skies will hang over the country for a generation, only to give way to blue skies when the system breaks down and individual communities take over the running of their lives.
