Penny Post Brexit Song and Book Title Competition

This competition has now closed

Many thanks to all of you who entered. Due to pressure of other things we haven’t managed to choose the winners yet but we’ll aim to have done this by Wednesday 13 November.

You’ve heard the speeches, debates and legal judgements, you’ve listened to Question Time on BBC or Nick Ferrari on LBC, you’ve talked about it in the pub or at home or at work: and still you, like the politicians, haven’t go the slightest idea what’s going to happen next. You brain has blurred Black Rod, Bercow, Boris, Benyon, Barnier, Brussels and the backstop into a bilious ball of Brexit-bloated bile and bewilderment – and who can blame it?

Help, however, is at hand.

The Penny Post Brexit Song and Book Competition is a simple way to alleviate these blues. Thanks to the support of The Naked Grape and The Hungerford Bookshop, we can offer you a £10 voucher at either of these excellent and award-winning shops in Hungerford High Street to provide the solace of fine wine or fine words just when they’re most needed.

Simply let us know what, in your view, is the song title and/or the book title that best sums up any or all aspects of the current crisis. It doesn’t matter if the actual song or the book itself describes something completely different – it’s a good title that we’re after. For example, neither Je ne Regrette Rien nor Decline and Fall are about Brexit but the titles suggest that each might be.

How to Enter

All you need to do is email your suggestion/s to competitions@pennypost.org.uk with the the subject ‘Brexit Competition‘.

For songs we need the title and any one of the artists who performed it; for the books we need the title and the author. You can supply as many suggestions as you wish. If you have any additional ideas, you can also enter more than once. If you want to explain to what aspect of the current fiasco your choice refers to then please append a short note.

The closing date is midnight on Sunday 3 November. As Brexit was delayed we thought we’d delay this from the original date of 31 October as well, just to show we could do it.

The winner and runner up will be chosen by Penny and Brian. In either case if more than one person has suggested the same book or song title then we’ll select one of the entrants at random. The winner and runner up might both have suggested book titles or both song titles or one of each. The one we judge to be the best will get the choice of either the £10 voucher from The Naked Grape or the £10 voucher from The Hungerford Bookshop. The runner up will receive the other one.
