Devon couple declare Brexit-free kingdom called ‘Euphoria’ in back garden

A Devon couple fed up with politics have founded a Brexit-free kingdom in their back garden.

June Fendick and Alex Foreman have created their own state - called ‘EU-phoria’ - in the back garden of their Torquay home.

Complete with their own tongue-in-cheek mission statement, the couple said June would serve as commander-in-chief while Alex has been appointed secretary of state.

Their dog, Hudson, is also a member of the newly-founded state - where the word Brexit is banned.

Our constitution consists of having fun, enjoying yourself, not being bothered by politics in any shape or form, and...generally spreading happiness no matter what!

– June and Alex

The couple even held an official flag-raising ceremony this week, to mark the birth of their new kingdom.

Although currently confined to their back garden, the couple hinted at potential expansion in the future.

“If anyone wants to come round and have a chat about it and a cup of tea, we'll only be too pleased to see them,” June added.
