Bit hard for UK-based posters to try and work out what's real and what's not with all this Brexit bollocks going on.

..although this has some merit.

"The group is also considering a number of events to help with reunification of the country. One idea gaining traction is for a 12-hour live TV recreation of the popular show It’s a Knockout, which ran for 15 years on the BBC. It would feature combined teams of commentators and MPs based on remainers v leavers. “We’re looking at a more no-holds barred contest – let’s let off steam, let’s get this done,” said one source with knowledge of the talks.

Among locations suggested for the contest are Edgehill in Warwickshire – the site in 1642 of the first pitched battle of the English civil war – in which the casualties numbered more than 4,000 killed and wounded."
