France Now Has A "Brexit Street" That Goes In Circles With No End In Sight

It's an endless loop of pointless frustration

Finally, Brexit has been given the recognition it deserves... after a French town gave it a street that goes in circles, with no end in sight.

Rue de Brexit was renamed by Julien Sanchez, the rightwing Front National mayor of the southern town of Beaucaire, to commemorate 'the decision of the sovereign British people'.

He announced the renaming on Twitter, crowing: "'Beaucaire Council creates "Brexit Street" to pay tribute to the British sovereign people's choice."

"It's a street in an industrial zone, and isn't going to shake up the daily lives of Beaucaire residents," Sanchez told radio France Bleu. But he added that so many streets in France are named after founders of a "Europe smothering the people" that he felt it his duty to create a Rue du Brexit, a decision that was "justified to rebalance things".

Still, many responders were eager to point out that the street was not only in a "grim", industrial part of town, but that it goes literally nowhere, instead sending drivers on an endless loop of frustration around some grassy wasteland.
