Storm Jorge has hit the UK reportedly bringing heavy rains, strong winds and more disruption to the flood-hit country. However, the storm has left Brexiteers unhappy for a bizarre reason. Many of those who supported Britain to leave EU now demand a “more British” name for the storm. The storm was named ‘Jorge’ by the Spanish meteorological service Agencia Estatal de Meteorología which first spotted it on February 27.
Soon after #StormJorge started trending on Twitter, many demanded a “proper” British name for it like John or Janet. Read what Brexiteers had to say:
Is Brussels naming our storms. Surely since we got our Brexit we should have to put up with #StormJorge I thought getting our sovereignty back also meant we could name storms and we could have had a good British name like Storm Jonathan instead— GowrieGuy (@Cam81047451) February 27, 2020

Why has the #stormJorge in the UK been given a Spanish name rather than an English one?— Mary Pole-Baker (@psyche_m77) February 28, 2020
