A new talent show will debut on BBC1 this winter called “The Brex Factor”. In it, contestants will pitch an idea on how to overturn the referendum result using the medium of song, dance, comedy or spurious legal challenges. The winner will be then part of the Liberal Democrat manifesto.
A panel of judges comprising Times columnist Giles Coren, comedian Eddie Izzard and business woman Karen Brady will comprise the experts and deciders of who goes through to the final with no pubic voting or input whatsoever until there are two contestants remaining. Then there will be a public phone vote and the winner will be determined by the number of votes cast for the runner up added to the number of people who didn’t vote. If that result isn’t the correct one, then the judges may rule against the vote if it’s in the best interests of the show.
BBC producer Giselle Pepper said “We feel this competition is in the best spirit of the EU and hopes to promote understanding, unity and further antipathy towards Brexiteers.”
