Labour parliamentary candidate Daniel Zeichner and city council leader Lewis Herbert performed a stirring rendition of the Slade classic Merry Christmas Everybody at the Mill Road Winter Fair on Saturday - with the lyrics given the full Brexit treatment.

‘So here it is, Merry Brexit… And there’s no one having fun,’ the pair crooned to the amusement/horror of passers-by.
