Without A Single Bullet Being Fired

In this piece I quote Nigel Farage:

“Without A Single Bullet Being Fired”

taken from his victory Brexit speech:

“We have done it.
Without having to fight.
Without a single bullet being fired”

I contrasted this quote against a backdrop of components from the EU flag and a map of Britain displaying wounded people. In this artwork I show that on the contrary to winning without fighting there will be a lot of wounded people as a result of voting to leave the EU. Already shown by the many racist attacks throughout the UK post Brexit.
