CHEESE SUBMARINES. Brexit and Social Media: A Marriage Made in Hull

Hosted by David Schneider

  • Friday, November 1, 2019

  • 5:10 PM - 5:50 PM

  • Venue: QEII Centre: 3rd Floor

  • Category: Social Media and Society



There’s much that brands on social can learn from Brexit, and not just how to make impossible promises. From Theresa May as the “This Is Fine” dog meme to why Brexit is like a submarine made of cheese, the one sunlit upland Brexit has brought us is a surge of creativity and satire. #BrexitDividend

Writer and satirist David Schneider, who co-wrote The Death Of Stalin and whose social media company That Lot runs the Have I Got News For You accounts on social, brings Social Media Week London to a lively close with a look at the best and worst of Brexit-related social media, with jokes, tips on how to write devastating satirical content that will definitely bring down the government (T&Cs apply), and a fun end-of-term quiz to test your Brexit irritation levels (questions may or may not include “how do we replace the Irish border?”).

48% of you may want to Remain for this session, 52% will want to Leave, but those who remain will take back control of:

  • Tips on writing satire and making satirical imagery and video
  • How to be effective with topical content (and how to fail miserably at it)
  • An even greater understanding of just how miserable Brexit has made us all
