The Severn Bridge will have a new name later this year to signify the inevitable disaster the Tories will make of Brexit.

The bridge was due to be named after the Prince of Wales, but after Charles realised the tolls would be removed and he’d make no money out of it, he decided against it.

Welsh Government spokesperson Pete Bowen said: “We all know how popular the Royal Family are and it’s a shame we won’t be spending money on renaming the bridge after Prince Charles, especially after we’re giving them so much money for their renovation work.

“We’d planned to put the naming out to the general public, but there’s always a risk that they’ll call it something stupid so we decided to be a bit more realistic and plan for the inevitable.”

Spokesperson for Downing Street Theresa Connell added: “I’m not sure why the Welsh are naming the bridge after a Talking Heads song, but who cares? It’s Wales.

“So long as it doesn’t cost us anything they can get on with it. We’ll honour the post Brexit finances they’ll no longer receive from the EU in the same way we’ve made the Tidal Lagoon happen.”
