Happy Brexmas Austin Mitchell

How will you be spending Christmas and New Year?

Avoiding Brussels sprouts, Polish pickles, German sauerkraut and French wine. New Zealand is so much better.

Is Brexit likely to be a topic of conversation over Christmas dinner?

No, it will be the subject of blazing rows. My grandchildren are Remainers. Not because they’re daft (at least not daft enough to stand around Westminster waving Euroflags) but because they’re naive, live in London and read The Guardian.  Physical violence may be necessary.

What is your favourite memory of the referendum campaign?

Getting big audiences and support for the first time in years.

What do you think was the most significant moment of 2017?

The sexual magnetism between Macron and Merkel.

Whether it be a traditional carol or a festive chart hit, what is your favourite piece of Christmas music?

Adeste fideles Brexit Triumphantes

Complete the phrase: “Brexit means…

Taking back control of our own fishing grounds.

Have you any (political or personal) New Year’s resolutions?

Keep young and beautiful.
