    Default British-only passport holders barred from playing Prince William in new film

    “ British actors will be barred from auditioning to play Prince William in a forthcoming film, because of new restrictions introduced after the country separates from the EU in January.

    A new casting notice asking for boys aged between nine and 12 years old, who could conceivably play William at age 11, stipulates that only European passport holders can apply. “NOT British-European,” warns the note, “due to new Brexit rules from 1st January 2021.””

    That is actually really funny but not for the reason you're probably thinking of.

    It seems like Brexit will properly feck up a lot of industries previously completely ignored yet rather profitable (more so than the fishing industry which currently seems to be the very definition of the UK as if nothing else exists, it's all about "our" fish ffs!)

    But of course they should just get over it and retrain.

    This has to be a joke. But then a british man played the role of Gandhi in an Oscar winning movie, so anything is possible.

    All those tech / IT ads which say "no visa sponsorship" must've made Brits jealous so they thought we want some of that as well - enter Brexit.

    I assume that really they're after a German passport holder.

    That'll be me then, expect to see me on the big screen soon...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    No amount of make up or editing will make you look like a 12 year old

    Gandhi was a "British Protected Subject" - said so on his (Blue)passport.
