We’re glad that on 13 November 2019 the European Commission decided to change the portfolio name from “Protecting our European Way of Life” to “Promoting our European Way of Life”

Margaritis Schinas, the Commissioner-designate for “Protecting our European Way of Life”, is not in charge yet but he is already swamped with emails, calls, tweets and owls from citizens, national governments and members of the wizarding community, all trying to help him defining what the European Way of Life is.

Last? Tango in Brussels is a 2019 EUrotic drama film which portrays the anonymous and estranged political relationship between a newly born country (Free England) and her old master (the European Union).

The Termaynal (2019)

The EU-UK Bilateral Air Service Agreement, first installment of the series

When Theresa, a tourist from the fictitious land of Free England, arrives at Zavantem International Airport in Brussels, No-deal Brexit breaks out in her country and she finds herself caught up in international politics, something she was never really interested in.

Because no agreement was stipulated between the European Union and Free England, the Directorate-General of Homeland Security won’t let her enter or exit the European Union. She has to wait until an agreement is stipulated; everything is in the capable hands of Dominic Raab.

Theresa can’t leave the terminal nor buy anything, as she doesn’t have access to the EU Single Market… What good is Brexit for her?
