Brexiteers’ joy quickly turned to outrage today after they discovered that ‘prorogue’ is a French word.

According to sources, the word comes from the Old French ‘proroger,’ and there have now been calls for Boris Johnson to choose something more English such as ‘suspend’ or ‘fuck over.’

Dave Fringe told us, ‘It’s a disgrace.’

‘I’ve already refused to renew my passport until they change it to ‘country go see book.’

‘I had no idea that ‘prorogue’ was French anyway because it doesn’t sound French when you say it properly as ‘pro rodge’ – like ‘Bodge’ as in ‘Bodger and Badger.

‘Bloody etymologists. Had enough of these language experts.’
