Police forces across Europe today started a Europe wide round up of Brexit Brits and sending them home.
Police forces in Amsterdam, Ibiza, Prague and many others began the raids at around 5am this morning in preparation for the UK’s official exit from the EU at midnight tonight.
Countries who had experienced particular troubles with “Brits Abroad” including football hooligans, stag nights and English yobs were particularly eager to get rid of the idiots who creep onto the continent due to lax laws on immigration into the Schengen zone.
Starting on 1st Feb 2020, there will be a visa system in place to keep the idiots out, with France even considering bricking up the entrance to the Channel Tunnel towards the end of the year.
“Certain measures will be in place to keep out the idiots”, said a Police spokesman. “We fully intend to keep out Barry and the lads from Clacton-On-Sea, as well as Kev and Darren and their 20 pints challenge.”
Crowds of local residents gathered in various cities to applaud the work of the Police.
Luxembourg has been selected to host the world’s first drink driving championships as part of its national branding campaign.
Thousands of competitors have been waiting for years for the opportunity to compete in the event and finally their dreams are coming true.
Drink driving has been an unofficial sport in the grand duchy for years thanks to phenomenally high taxi prices and lack of long distance late night transport.
Regional heats will be organised between the city and Grevenmacher as well as Echternach and Diekirch.
Drivers are expected to tackle tight corners while overtaking cars at high speeds.
Extensive training regimes will be in place to assure drivers that because they own a new BMW, it means they are invincible on the roads.
Plastic gold star badges will be awarded to the winners as well as social recognition from their well connected local commune friends.
Losers will probably get a small fine.

“There is no other choice.”

While paying just €40 a day for stall rent and having volunteer staff working his Christmas stall, the local man running the stand said; “It’s a time for giving and what better way than to give me all their money?!”
“I try to be as tight as possible with drinks and food and just hope that the Christmas music playing all around will distract the people from the fact that I am ripping them off. It’s certainly worked so far!”
