William Shakespeare's Brexit : A Political Sh*tstorm in Five Acts Hardback
BORIS JOHNSON:To leave or not to leave, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to sufferThe slings and arrows of outrag'd Remainers,Or to take arms against a sea of Leavers,And by opposing end them?
To leave, to stay,No more; and by leaving to say we endThe EU, and the thousand petty rulesThat we adhere to, - 'tis a consummationDevoutly to be wish'd.
To stay, to leave; To stay, perchance to leave: ay, there's the rub;For in that move to leave what dreams may come,When we have shuffl'd off this Brussels yoke... 'This is our story. All Brexit's a stage, and all the men and women merely players...' Written by the Bard himself, with a little help from novelist Boris Starling, this wonderful 'comedy of errors' retells the tragic story of the UK's acrimonious break from the EU, written in wonderful iambic pentameter.
A story of cynical electioneering and poisoned political scheming, featuring the likes of Boris Johnson, Theresa May and David Cameron, this is a most original take of the defining event of our time - and the perfect satire for anyone interested in politics, humour, or even a little bit of Am-dram.
