The end of the EU’s Freedom of Movement could cause chaos this year for millions of kids.
Santa, a resident of Lapland, could face a restriction of movement thanks to Brexit.
A spokesman for the government said:
“I honestly didn’t think of this when I voted for Brexit but now that we’re starting to realise what we actually voted for, it’s come as a bit of a shock. An end to the current Freedom of Movement policy would mean that Santa would not be able to just fly in and out in one night as he has done for decades. He’d need to apply for a visa, wait several months for one of our chaps to get back to him, and then he’d be told that his application was lost and that he’d have to start again. I think he’ll have to start getting parents to actually buy the toys instead and say that they’re from him. That’s all I can think of at the moment.”
Santa was unimpressed and told WalesOnCraic:
“What a crock of shit that’ll be.”
