Brexit Coins To Be Melted Down Following Extension Announcement

Limited edition Brexit coins that were minted to mark Brexit this Halloween are to be melted down after Boris Johnson was granted an extension.

The Royal Mint in the UK had produced the 50p coins with the UK's scheduled departure date of the 31st October.

Up to 10 million new coins were reportedly being made ready for the deadline, in a project championed by Chancellor Sajid Javid since he took office in July.

The coins will now be 'recycled' and stamped with a new date, along with the words "Friendship with all nations".

Yesterday, the British Prime Minister formally accepted a three month Brexit delay to the 31st January which saw him abandon his 'do or die' pledge to leave the EU by the end of this week.

Mr Johson has already failed for a third time to win enough support from MPs for a pre-Christmas election but he's already announced he's going to try to secure an election again today.

He'll use a different method, meaning he'll need just half the votes, rather than the backing of two-thirds of MPs.
