After MPs failed to reach a conclusion last night on their preferred Brexit outcome, and Theresa May’s own strategy stalled without an endorsement from the DUP, it’s looking increasingly likely that Britain will end up extending Article 50 and participating in European elections in May

Already Brexiteers are gearing up for the fight, as a way to show the world that the UK still wants to leave the EU. Meanwhile, Remain parties will be hoping to  show widespread support for a People’s Vote. But who could they possibly put forward as a candidate?


Step forward pop-star and provocateur Lily Allen, who announced this morning she is considering standing as an MEP:

In this topsy turvy political climate, who’s to say it won’t happen. And considering Allen’s strange belief that the world hates the UK because of ‘slavery’, her devotion to Jeremy Corbyn, and full-throated support for Remain, Mr S reckons in Brussels she’d fit right in.
