Breggsit or Brecksit?

As a person who usually doesn’t have a lot of choice in how he pronounces words – I just tap things into my speech app and have to live with what comes out – I find this quite amusing. There is a debate boiling up over the correct way to pronounce the word ”Brexit”. Is it Breggsit or Brecksit? While some may point out it is a silly thing to think about, I think it goes directly to the hub of the issue. An absurd question to ask of an increasingly absurd subject. After all, as the old song goes: ”You say tomayto, I say tomarto / let’s call the whole thing off!”
