    You know, looking back on all the chaos and stupidity of May's term...it's kind of sad that her tenure as PM was the STABLE period, isn't it? Thanks, Bojo! You make May look great by comparison!

    It is much simpler than that. Brexit is an attempt by extreme right-wing racists to take over the UK.

    Rather than accuse Irish people of kneecapping each other she could have said " England invaded Ireland and created an illegal religious caliphate called Northern Ireland. Kinda like what ISIS do. Those who want to caliphate to continue have killed many Irish people and Irish people have retaliated against these invaders who declare themselves as British.

    Seems Boris Johnson wanted to rule England. No surprise there. Did you see him in UK's Who Do You Think You Are? Delusions of grandeur floated through his head after that.

    As a Brit I couldn't help but smile at this. This Brexit Bulls#it has turned our country into a laughing stock. Personally I'm sick of it, nobody has a clue what's going on.
    Either leave or don't !. One way or another we need to get on with our lives.

    Spoiler: it's March 29, and still no-one can agree what a Brexit is. The EU says the UK can have an extra two weeks to figure it out.

    why does this show have to insert Feminist BS when it's completely unnecessary? Women Voted for Brexit in similar numbers to men, with women over 65 being the most in favor. Women also make up a higher percentage of the population, so the could have stopped Brexit, but they didn't. Honestly, any reason to blame men.

    Furthermore, a lot of the colonialism, and its barbarism, happen when the UK had a Queen. So much for women making better rulers or politicians.
