RT The most sensible stance I've seen on - it's a shiny trinket to distract from something more important about Brexit they don't want to discuss. A bauble to please pro Brexit citizens who readily consume regalia.


No spam ever, they said. I've never signed up to them, or even heard of them, but they just spammed my work email address to try and hawk their product. That'll be an automatic no from me forever then.
RT Sign up for the VividCortex newsletter! No spam, ever. We promise.
