Airplane II spookily predicted Brexit

How could a Hollywood movie released way back in 1982 have predicted Brexit?

Liam Fox, for example, was saying last summer that a Brexit deal would be really easy: “The free trade agreement that we will have to do with the European Union should be one of the easiest in human history”. Now he’s warning, there is a 60% chance of no deal being struck.

UPDATE: This seems all the more apposite now we’ve heard about the secret toilet plans.
