Brexit and a searing indictment of the British political class

… no absolutely not elites. Quite the opposite

Jonathan Pie has an edge and an anger about the world that I think is absolutely spot on. He is described as lefty’ … but I have seen him take down the Labour party with as much ferocity as he attacks Tories. This particular one is aimed at the entire Government - and if you are offended by blasphemy, I highly recommend that you do not watch. Example ….

… pointing at the Houses of Parliament, answering the rhetorical question who got us into this mess’ …. he says … this lot’ …

This gaggle of obdurate, arrogant stubborn, unrepentant, heartless, bunch of self serving arseholes …”

Context

If you live in America and wonder about late night hosts you would be forgiven for not knowing the name Jonathan Pie. I’m not even sure he has a TV show in the UK - Tom Walker (his creator) only launched him 3 1/2 years ago. His YouTube channel shows just shy of half a million subscribers - though his watched’ number does on occasion blow that number out of the water. I think he is also too much for TV to take him on - maybe Netflix will think about it, his numbers are already blowing out Hasan Minhaj even with his Daily Show history and TV promotion.
