Excerpt from The Beast of Brexit, by Heathcote Williams
Video: Margaret Cox
Narration: Alan Cox
“Left to their own devices, the natives would rely on nothing but the instant carbohydrate gratification of the plantain.” These are the words of acclaimed journalist, former Mayor of London, and so-called “national treasure” Boris Johnson. He with other ‘also-rans’ are attempting to persuade us to isolate, ignore, and punish the European Union, by leaving it at a critical moment of our civilisation’s development. Running away and hiding behind the vainglorious dreams of Empire and Colditz is nothing but an arrogant two fingers to the future. The Beast of Brexit is a reminder of the dark side of the British character.
