Be funny for money!

Union JACK’s on the hunt for comedy writers! We’ll pay you at least three shillings for your funny-ness.

 

Topical one-liners

These are the backbone of the Union JACK personality – topical lines that lampoon the state of the world! Whether Brexit or Love Island – whatever happening’s in the news, we want to hear about it!

A few examples from recent events and news stories are below:

 

"Union JACK. Unlike WhatsApp, we can't hack it."

"Union JACK. After last night's curry, we've got more of a backstop problem than Theresa May"

"Union JACK's playing hide and seek with Julian Assange - FOUND YOU!"
