I just saw this on Twitter:
2016: TURKEY ARE JOINING THE EU!!!
Scunthorpe votes 68.68% for leave
2019: British Steel in Scunthorpe goes into administration because of Brexit
Turkey buys British Steel Scunthorpe and saves 4,500 jobs
Ironic-o-meter just exploded

When I looked into it, I found that yes, there is interest from Turkey to save about 4000 jobs or so. By the way, Turkey isn’t joining the EU either and the billion or so Turkish people who were supposedly all moving to Britain – as an argument for Brexit – have no intention of doing that.
