    Ballistic Brexit stealing our attention

    Brexit Causes Chaos

    MPs Reject Brexit

  • great_brain | Maritime Academy | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    My headline is Brexit is a lie!
    This is supposed to be real because people lied that NHS would get more money but it is a huge lie!
    If it got shared a lot that it is a lie then people would know and we wouldn’t be in this mess that we are in right now.

  • delightful_eagle | Elaine Primary School | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    Britain has left the EU for AU (African Union)

  • creative_starfruit | Maritime Academy | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    Do you agre what people say?

  • interesting_crab | Elaine Primary School | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    "No brexit? Therexit!"
    It is supposed to be real because reports suggest MPs have told the Prime Minister in phone calls that she has to go as her deal was not voted through.
    If this was shared a lot people might agree that she should leave because they aren't happy with how things are going.

  • persuasive_aspect | Maritime Academy | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    I agree with you because lately all people talk about on the street and on the news is brexit and wether we are leaving or not.

  • incredible_drawing | Elaine Primary School | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    Deal or no deal ? Which box will they choose?

    I have chosen this headline for the vote that happened last week.

  • delightful_eagle | Elaine Primary School | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    I chose this headline because i don`t know if Brexit is actually leaving the EU (Europe Union)

  • free_acorn | Elaine Primary School | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    Will There Ever Be A Brexit?
    Its supposed to be real because Theresa May wanted to delay Brexit after her vote did not go through.

  • loving_attitude | Maritime Academy | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    We might have some important issues to be focusing on and then Brexit comes in and steals the spotlight. We can’t be letting this happen to us. We sneed to be focusing on our lives. Even though this may be a huge change in our lives, we don’t deserve this. We deserve for this to be over and done with and for Theresa May (and other members of Parliament) to get this deal over and done with. This needs to be dealt with sooner or later. A big part of our lives is being stolen by the votes that these people have chosen. I’m not saying any of your options are wrong. We all have different opinions. You may have thought that this would be the best option for you and your family.

  • energetic_rock | Maritime Academy | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    My headline would be: ‘Frustrating fusion escalating throught our towns’. It causes arguments, and it is constantly escalating like a ball of yarn; you never know how long it could be, and how long it could travel.

  • plucky_yuzu | Bruntcliffe Academy | United Kingdom | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    My headline is that Brexit shows us another vote is needed and that this country might never be at peace. My comment is supposed to be fake and if this comment gets shared on the internet or world wide it will cause arguments between people and it will confuse people ,on the other hand other people may believe it and support it. Also my fake news will cause other people who read it to be angry with me because they might think it is wrong for someone to be sharing news that isn't real and it could hurt other people feelings and what they think about their opinion, which is bad because if someone does feel like this then it's bad because no one should feel like this despite the fact that we have free speech. Also the person may feel like their opinion isn't strong or right when there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to your opinion.

    MAN FALLS OF THE SHARD SURVIVES
    This is fake as you would die and that is impossible to survive.
    If this got shared a lot then people would try it and that is life threatening.

  • unconventional_brain | Boutcher CofE Primary A | United Kingdom 18 Mar 2019

    My headline is:
    Indecisive Brexit Causing Chaos!
    It is real and fake at the same time because it isn't really recent news about Brexit but it may some up a little part of it because the MP's can't decide what they think would be best for the country, leave with no deal, just stay... it is chaos.
    If my headline got shared... I think people would agree with me because some people agree that we should just stop this and stay; some want a revote and others just want to get it over and done with.

  • genius_chameleon | Arnhem Wharf Primary School | United Kingdom 19 Mar 2019

    Brexit causes uproar.

  • happy_guava | Arnhem Wharf Primary School | United Kingdom 19 Mar 2019

    My headline is:
    Brexit Causing Catastrophic Chaos
    I chose this headline because most of the people in the UK want to have another referendum because they think that the vote that involved Brexit is not fair and they want to have another vote and Theresa May failed to try to stop Brexit from taking place and most of the citizens of London are protesting for another vote based on Brexit.

  • clever_sea | Arnhem Wharf Primary School | United Kingdom 19 Mar 2019

    Brexit causing disarray!

  • radical_reality | Arnhem Wharf Primary School | United Kingdom 19 Mar 2019

    BREXT is back !

  • efficient_information | Arnhem Wharf Primary School | United Kingdom 19 Mar 2019

    Theresa's deal or no deal?

  • radical_reality | Arnhem Wharf Primary School | United Kingdom 19 Mar 2019

    I chose to have that header because brexit was in 2016 and we are still in the process now in 2019.

  • mindful_skill | Arnhem Wharf Primary School | United Kingdom 19 Mar 2019

    My headline is 'Britain's final thought of Brexit'. I would call it that because people in Britain want to have another referendum but no one knows if there will be anymore and nobody know whether Britain will be leaving the EU. I think it should be a true headline so people should know if there will be a referendum. if it was shared to everyone then i think there will be a big fight because no one knows the answer.

  • enterprising_beaver | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    Deal or no deal? That is the question.

  • introspective_land | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    Theresa May has an affair with Donald Tusk in order to get a good deal
    don´t worry this is fake
    if it was shared Britain would not trust Theresa May

  • dazzling_statement | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    Donald Tusk kills Theresa May!
    This is fake but if this would be real this would make a big change in Europe and it would make a Europe war

  • knowledgeable_elephant | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    The Donald Tusk deal.
    I choose this because Donald Tusk pretty much controls the deal and the time pressure involved in it.

  • enigmatic_engineer | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    Brexit is a parasite for the EU
    It's supposed to be real because they don't want to accept their decision and they are always delaying the date
    If this was share lots it could create a civil was in the UK.

  • enterprising_beaver | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    Teresa May kills Donald Tusk!
    Dont worry, this is fake.
    But I dont think in this moment she wouldnt. ;)

  • believable_recipe | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    Spain spells all the UK nations

  • accomplished_market | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    BREXIT ENDS UP IN HANDS OF THE EU

    This is supposed to be real as the deal Theresa May did has been once again rejected and she has only 11 days left, this means that she has to go and beg Donald Tusk to extend the time limit. If Donald Tusk says that he isn`t going to extend the time limit I`m sure the UK wont go without a deal.

  • spectacular_currency | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    Teresa May marries Donald Tusk
    It is supposedb to be fake
    If this got share people in England would get mad

  • believable_recipe | British Council School, Madrid | Spain 19 Mar 2019

    this is fake because this would make caos and violence and it wiil be unfair for british people
