The Best Brexit Cartoons

I can’t help feel of late that I’m living in a satire, the reality TV star American president is facing charges of election tampering, paying hush money to porn stars and insulting the looks of high ranking officials all across the globe. And here on home shores, instead of sitting back and passing judgement, we ourselves as a nation have decided to shoot ourselves in the foot, which is firmly planted on the accelerator pedal as we about to drive over a cliff. I’m talking about Brexit.
