A former Tory MEP has been called out after he tried to highlight all the things that didn't happen immediately after Brexit.

Daniel Hannan, who had been a Member of the European Parliament since 1999 couldn't contain his glee on the UK's first day out of the EU.

To mark it he posted a tweet that listed many of the scaremongering things that some had feared would happen if the UK left the EU without a deal.

They included food riots, medicine shortages, gridlocked motorways, migrant camps in Kent, a collapse in house prices, emergency tax rises and a world war.

Although Hannan was most likely joking about any of these things happening straight away, there is a small likelihood that some of these things could happen should the government fail to get a deal by the end of December.

The fact that none of these things have happened let is down to the fact that the UK is still under EU rules and regulations for at least the next 11 months a fact that more than a few folks on Twitter were happy to point out.

Hannan did seem to offer some sort of response to the critics, labelling them a 'doomsday cult.'
