“Draw the blinds and watch the show
Heard it on the radio
Saw it on the news today
Heard the lonely people say
There’s a great big crack in the union jack”
These lyrics, penned some 25 years ago by Brett Anderson, front man for 90s glam pop group, Suede, in the song “Crack in the Union Jack” seem somewhat apposite as the UK formally departed the EU at 11pm on Friday 31st January.
