‘Brexit means Brexit’ tour of London offered to Americans… for a mere $6K
The New York Times is cashing in on Britain’s split from the EU by offering a ‘Brexit Means Brexit Tour’ of London to American tourists who want to explore the issue, and don’t mind paying thousands for the pleasure.

Prime Minister Theresa May has repeated the mantra “Brexit means Brexit” since the majority of Britons voted for the UK to withdraw from the EU in June last year.

The all-inclusive, six-day trip being offered by one of America’s most famous publications as part of its ‘Times Journeys’ travel service will allow people to "to discuss Britain’s decision to leave the EU and the financial, legal and social implications for Britain, Europe and the world," as they tour around the city’s iconic sites.

The trip, being offered for the eye-watering cost of $5,995 (£4,600) will start with a tour of Westminster by a London School of Economics history graduate, followed by a “typical pub lunch and a pint at a local pub frequented by members of Parliament.”

Visitors, accompanied throughout by Steve Erlanger, the London bureau chief of the New York Times, will then queue to attend one of the debates in either the House of Commons or the House of Lords, before they retreat to their four-star St. Ermin's Hotel in Westminster.

The next day, US tourists will have the chance to take a stroll in the City of London, the capital’s financial district, while on day four, they will have the chance to attend a discussion on foreign affairs, which will include the much-debated topic of expats’ rights post-Brexit.

Day five includes a tour of the Magna Carta room at the British Library, to view the 800-year-old document that many believe set the foundations for democracy.

But people have taken to social media platforms to mock the journey over its extortionate fees, with UK residents offering to be hosts instead.

Others were just baffled at the peculiarity of the trip.
