UK to dig huge moat along EU border

London (dpo) - The British government’s Brexit preparations are now crystallising. Having delivered its official notice to leave the EU, the UK immediately began physically demarcating its territorial border with the EU. Sources close to the government revealed that a moat is to be constructed along the entire UK border to ensure separation. The moat is expected to be completed by the time the UK officially leaves the EU in 2019.

This huge-scale British construction project will result in one of the largest moats in history at an average depth of 120 m (approx. 400 ft) with a breadth varying between 34 km (approx. 20 miles) and 248 km (approx. 150 miles). The moat will join the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, thus automatically filling with water on completion.
This massive project assures the UK’s full geographical separation from the EU. It will also protect the country from uncontrolled immigration and smuggling across the land border.

This audacious plan even has the Queen’s seal of approval. A spokesperson from Buckingham Palace explained that throughout history and centuries of taking refuge in castles and forts the royal family has always had good experiences with defensive moats.
However, not all Brits are happy about the construction project. Critics of Brexit fear that the moat could lead to complete isolation for the UK. One Remainer told us, “I feel cut off, like I’m on an island, whenever I even think about the moat. Whatever next? Driving on the left?”
Meteorologists warn that a moat of this size could have negative effects on the British weather. Potential consequences include increased rainfall and more frequent fog.
Despite these warnings, the British government will not be swayed and has already announced further plans. In order to finalise economic separation, the UK is also to pull out of the EU’s common currency, the Euro, in 2019. It will be replaced by the good old British pound sterling.
