William Shakespeare's Brexit

A Political Sh*tstorm in Five Acts
Boris Starling
To leave or not to leave, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The 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 end
The EU, and the thousand petty rules
That we adhere to, - 'tis a consummation
Devoutly 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.
