French mayor names dead-end road ‘Rue du Brexit’ in honour of British leave vote

But it didn’t take long for social media users to point out that the road in question is a circular road that “leads to nowhere” – the street simply loops around in one big circle, with both entrances leading off of Rue Robert Schuman. To add to the irony, Rue Robert Schuman is named after a French politician who is considered one of the “founding fathers” of the European Union who served as the first President of the European Parliament and President of the European Movement.

“Therefore a street which starts from Europe (Robert Schuman) to return to Europe. Beautiful symbol actually,” tweeted one user in reaction to the news.
