    Well I liked it when Nigel Farrage threw up over Theresa May’s little brother - but I wasn’t a fan of Boris Johnson running over that squirrel in his yellow bus.

    Well it was quite biased and smege really. Portraying leavers to be stupid. I did not think much of the format or writing of the program. The timing of the program is also a bit suspect.

    I actually thought it was quite reasonably biased. Compared to channel 4's usual output when it comes to such things anyway. The timing is suspect, but that was always gonna be the case. I would have liked to have seen more farage and banks, but that's just me.

    Sort of the ultimate irony. No, nor did I play monopoly and land on the go to jail square. Though I did see loads of prison movies, like Papillon, the great escape, scum etc and I used to watch the bill

    Farage and Banks were made to look like clueless thugs I thought, The main guy for Brexit who's name I forget was made to look like an Egotistical 'it's all about me' type of bloke, and both remain and leave parties called the general public stupid. Yes it was all a remain voters' pollical message.

    Lets see what happens in Parliament next week,

    I don't think anybody would be smarter after watching that nonsense.

    Fair enough. Everyone on here knows how much I adore Farage. That being said, he's certainly not faultless, and he is as bad as a lot of other politicians in many ways. He certainly isn't the clueless thug he was shown as, however he does play up to his image when it suits him.

    I didn't have a problem with politicians and the like being played as corrupt and useless, because they are, and the fact that they called the public stupid was the most realistic thing in the programme.

    Next week is just another week passing in a government that is clock counting to some sort of muffled impass, and the fact that they have taken so long to come to it due to infighting and incompetence proves my last point beyond doubt

    What other TV show could he mean? Surely he isn't referring to the Australian prison-based soap opera.
