Talk show host Graham Norton has taken another swipe at summarising the current political environment.
The comedian explained to The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert what is going on in layman’s terms.
He said: “In a sweet way, it’s as if the United Kingdom was embarrassed for America, felt like you’re all alone out in the world stage so we found our own angry Cabbage Patch Kid and made him the leader.”
Norton said he wouldn’t trust current Prime Minister Boris Johnson “to water my plants when I was away but somehow he is the prime minister”.
He also described the dramatic events which unfolded in parliament this week which led to Johnson losing his party’s majority.
“What he cleverly did was, he said if anyone votes against me in my party, I will fire you. So they did vote against him so he fired them,” said Norton.
“As he fires them, his majority gets less and less and less so it’s like he’s drilling holes in his own ship out of spite.”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
