Watched that Bros film and then immediately saw the footage of Bercow being taken on about the Brexit sticker and him having the time of his life talking back. I can’t deal with this fucking world anymore, it’s just insane that this is real life.

“I’m not out of order, you’re out of order! The whole freaking system is out of order! You want the truth? You want the truth?! YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH! 'Cause when you reach over and put your hand into a pile of goo that was your best friend’s face, you’ll know what to do! Forget it Mail, it’s Chinatown!”

Let’s be honest, Bercow has been the person we all want to be in our workplaces calling out tedious bullshit in the most deservedly condescending manner imaginable. My hat is doffed in his direction.

It’s a real shame this is buried in a politics thread because it deserves to be POTW.

Pretty sure Iannuchi has said he’s glad he stopped when he did, because politics has become impossible to satirise.

the first time i ever got one of those “gangs are driving around at night with their headlights off to initiate new members, if you alert them to it they will chase you down and kill you” viral rumours on facebook it was from my elderly aunt, back in like 2007. we should have seen all this coming, dammit.

Am I missing something or is there no evidence in that article that they took the basic first step of controlling for the frequency of posting any news article amongst the different age groups?

My aunt posts nothing but bollocks, perhaps I’m now bollocks indoctrinated. Or maybe I’m inoculated by my dad’s non-stop stream of anti-Brexit essays.

This chap’s behind them - https://twitter.com/Tim_R_Dawson. No idea how he funds it because he’s published a LOT of ads on Facebook. This is a full list.
