I propose another UK referendum on a different but related subject.

"Should all Old Etonians be rounded up and exiled to Ascension Island? Yes/No."

And what has Ascension Island done to you?

It has a population of only 880, and is 1,000 miles from the coast of Africa and 1,400 miles from the coast of South America, and so they couldn't do much harm there.

Too difficult and expensive. A barren volcanic island, population 880, a thousand miles from the nearest mainland, is the best realistic option.

Yes! But make sure there are no pigs there first, that'll annoy 'em!

There are no pigs. No native mammals at all - the largest native animal is the land crab - and the only imported ones are donkeys, sheep, rats, and cats.

*laughs* Only those in politics.
The existing population of Ascension Island would probably object though. *g*
But there must be uninhabited islands that are sufficiently isolated...

The existing population of Ascension Island is only 880, almost all either military or working for GCHQ or for the European Space Agency. The ESA people will no doubt be leaving, because of Brexit, so the Old Etonians can move into their accommodation, GCHQ can keep tabs on the Etonians, and the military can ensure that the upper-class twits don't escape.
