Hilarious Brexit memes flood the internet as Britons mock new Halloween deadline that 'sums up the horror story so far'

With the UK heading for a Halloween Brexit, references to the political nightmare that has engulfed the country in recent months were all too easy to make today.
And Britons have made the most of news of the October 31 date given by the remaining 27 EU nations by posting a series of tongue-in-cheek memes on Twitter.
Among them was Simon Williams from Wales, who posted a Beetlejuice meme, saying: 'Brexit delayed until Halloween... satire really does write itself these days.'

Other Twitter users said it 'sums up the horror story it has been so far', the day was 'so relevant' and pointed out that the EU has 'one hell of a sense of humour'.
Some speculated on what their Halloween costume choices might be. One user, @TechnicallyRon said: 'Can't wait to dress as Brexit for Halloween this year.
'Basically I'll turn up to parties, say I'll make them better, ruin everything and shout at people for complaining about it.'
Conservative councillor Stephen Canning said: 'What will everyone be dressing as for Brexit Halloween? I'm going as an indicative vote.' 
And BBC broadcaster Tina Daheley posted: 'Considering my Brexit Halloween costume ... Backstop, Irish Border or Red Line?'
Meanwhile, others speculated on possible film tie-ins, with one suggestion being The Brexorcist.
Opponents of Brexit, such as journalist Stig Abell, viewed the date as a 'malign metaphor', while lecturer Paul Bernal tweeted: 'So, Halloween it is. Appropriate for a Cabinet of the Living Dead.' 
But many were simply horrified by the development. 
Historian Dr Fern Riddell tweeted: 'Are...are you kidding. Brexit has been moved to Halloween? MY FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR? THE SEASON THAT KEEPS ME GOING? THE ONE GOOD, GLORIOUS AND PURE THING I HAD LEFT?'
And actor Reece Shearsmith perhaps echoed the views of many when he urged politicians: 'Don't you dare drag Halloween into Brexit.'
The second extension to the Brexit process - initially intended to conclude on March 29 - definitively stopped the clock on a No Deal withdrawal this Friday.
It gives Theresa May a further six months to ratify or rethink her withdrawal deal, but European Council president Donald Tusk did not rule out further extensions.
