Goldie Lookin’ Chain bid farewell to the single market after Brexit with this brilliant rap

Unless you’ve been living in a lead-lined bunker at the summit of Snowdon for the last few days you’ll know which way the UK voted in last week’s EU Referendum .

You’ve probably also spent a lot of time since then mulling over the myriad political commentary on TV, online and in the newspapers as to what that momentous decision will me for both you as an individual and the country as a whole.

But if, like us, you’re still trying to make sense of what’s proving to be the biggest bombshell to have hit this country in recent history, then why not let those renowned experts in constitutional law – Newport’s rap icons Goldie Lookin’ Chain – break it down for you in a way everyone can understand.

In their latest video, Auf Wiedersehen Mate – an affectionate take on The Streets’ 2004 hit Dry Your Eyes – the band’s main man Rhys mopes around his home city’s pubs, underpasses and greasy spoons, forlornly reflecting on the implications of Brexit.

“Oh, Europe, I think there’s something we must discuss, things ain’t been going well between the two of us,” he sings as though he’s going through a breakup with the missus.

“It’s not you it’s me, there’s plenty more countries in the sea,” he continues, before admitting he’ll miss the European Cup, Volvo and Nutella, Primark, Lidl, Aldi, Kronenbourg “and even Stella.”

But, unlike the view in Westminster that the single market is now to us a permanently closed door, Rhys is slightly more consolatory.

“Maybe when we’re older and wiser we can hook up again,

“Maybe raise up a couple of islands off the coast of Spain,

“Until then your flag got one less star… this goodbye, Europe, not au revoir.”

Sob.
