Top definition
Collective noun for white, middle-aged, furious-faced men who are heavily concentrated in the vast reaches of England's Brexit heartlands.

Spitting out talking points found in fascist organs like the Daily Mail (or, for those preferring something less intellectual, the Daily Express), gammon exist in a state of perpetual outrage and exasperated "I'm just an ordinary bloke, me" confusion.

Core traits:

- They favour Brexit. After all, it means Brexit.
- Because the Conservative Party and the right-wing media ecosystem have told them to, they reject those things that underpin their jobs, living standards and opportunities: environmental protections, workers' rights, regulations favouring consumers, the European Union, the single market and the customs union. These things also benefit people they don't like (including foreigners and Guardian readers), of course, so they have to go.
- On the off-chance that they're aware of a border in Ireland, they don't know anything about it.
- They dislike multiculturalism and the 'equality agenda', and obsess about 'lefties', immigrants, Jeremy Corbyn ("Would 'e launch a nuke?! WELL, WOULD 'E?!") and the fabled liberal metropolitan elite.
- They hate Muslims, so they voted for the UK to withdraw from a free trade bloc comprising countries made up of white Christians.
- Having spent 40 years bellyaching about the UK's democratic decision to enter the EEC, they are now unbending guardians of its democratic decision to leave.
"There was so much gammon on Question Time last night that I went straight on Amazon and bought a panini machine. I'll get killed with the tariffs, but it'll be worth it."

"Fresh fruit looks likely to become a luxury after Brexit, but at least we'll have a surfeit of gammon."
