This is a bit of random text from Kyle to test the new global option to add a message at the top of every article. This bit is linked somewhere.

In the run-up to the EU referendum campaign, a lot of mad things were said about Brexit. We were told it would cause an instant recession, mass exodus of businesses, a Third World War. But spiked’s favourite claim was easily that ISIS would be in favour of it, that they would celebrate it, as then PM David Cameron ludicrously said.

Well, it turns out another Project Fear myth has been debunked. Though ISIS didn’t have an official stance on Britain’s membership of the European Union – it was busy being ISIS at the time – indications have started to trickle out of what ISIS fighters think about Brexit, and they’re not positive. First we had British jihadi bride Shamima Begum, in one of her many interviews earlier this year, declaring that she was bored of Brexit.

And now we have Jack Letts (aka Jihadi Jack), another British ISIS scumbucket begging to be brought back to Britain, saying that he, er, actually doesn’t want to live in a country led by Boris Johnson, former leader of the Leave campaign. Strong words considering Letts was once more than happy to live in a murderous Caliphate.

The Briton's been stripped of his citizenship – more here:

Both Letts and Begum have huge public profiles. Perhaps the Remoaner lot should get on to them. Jihadists for a People’s Vote?
