It seems Vox Political is turning into Fake News Daily; there’s so much of it about.

Oh well, if this is the way it has to be, until we can get our news media to be reasonable, then so be it. Here’s Martin Odoni, in The Critique Archives:

Back in the summer, Britain made a decision that I am still terrified it will live to regret, when the notorious Referendum on leaving the European Union came out in favour.

The quotation is taken from a satirical section in a magazine published in Germany, called Contra Magazin. The article it appeared in can be accessed by clicking here.
