The late, great Rik Mayall remains sorely-missed, and barely a week goes by without one of his comic gems being recirculated and cherished anew online.
But one doing the rounds today is more prescient than most.
One Twitter user highlighted an obscure Mayall clip from sitcom ‘Believe Nothing’, which had a short-lived one season run back in the early noughties.
In it, Rik’s character shows remarkable foresight and seems to predict the turmoil of Brexit fourteen years in advance.
Give it a watch to see in your weekend.
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.
