One can’t help but love representative democracy: the system whereby the ignorant and simple-minded elect ignorant and cynical people to inflict massive self-harm on everyone. What’s most amusing is that Brexiteers think they’re being “patriotic.” All in all, the Brexit Show will run and run (into the ground) and it will, of course, all be the fault of the EU that millions of jobs will be lost and the gloomy little island becomes merely a dreary sub-unit of USA Corporation, sold at a knock-down price by Boris the Clown and his pathetic gang of halfwits and chancers.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
