People’s Vote strike the right note with last Christmas musical number

The People’s Vote is aiming to keep up the pressure for a second referendum on Britain’s relationship with the European Union by penning a Christmas lamentation of the looming exit.

Conceived by BBD Perfect Storm 'Our Last Christmas with EU' was developed for people to show their support for another vote in verse with the campaign targeting social media as well as Perfect Storm’s own Christmas card.

At once a celebration of Britain’s 45-year stint in the continental club and a sad realisation that this could be the nation's last Christmas in the union, the campaign notes that soon the only Brussels in Briton's lives will come in the form of a sprout.

Jason Foo, CEO at BBD Perfect Storm, said: “Being part of the EU is critical to the health and growth of the UK’s creative industries. What better time, than at Christmas, for us all to come together and maybe, just maybe, if we all believe, we might get one final magical wish – the chance to have a #PeoplesVote.”

Sarah Baumann, director of marketing at People’s Vote Campaign remarked: “Only the people of the United Kingdom can sort this out now with a People’s Vote, and help make sure that we’ll have many more Merry Christmases to come.”

Viewers are encouraged not just to sing along but petition their MP for another referendum on the People’s Vote website.

The lyrics to the song penned for the video are: 

Our last Christmas with EU.

Well the stars are shining, though one less brightly
As we prepare to leave, and what it means to Blighty
Whether Chequers, Soft, Hard or a Backstop plan
We’ll miss your bratwurst, gateaux and du pain

Our last Christmas with EU
The only Brussels will be our sprouts
And the only wish we want this year
A chance to stop us going out

Let’s celebrate together, for one last time
Here’s to Europe, raise a glass, raise a stein
But our hearts feel empty, it’s our last year
Salut, Sante, Salud, Proost, Prost and cheers

Our last Christmas with EU
The only Brussels will be our sprouts
And the only wish we want this year
A chance to stop us going out

Now we’re the turkeys, that voted for Christmas
As we queue for medicine, to cure our sickness
We’ll lose human rights, free trade and free movement
And bleached chicken, is not an im-prove-ment

Our last Christmas with EU
The only Brussels will be our sprouts
And the only wish we want this year
A chance to stop us going out

The only wish we want this year
A chance to stop us going out

A chance to stop us going out
