John Oliver’s Responds To Brexit Vote With Humor And Outrage
John Oliver has expressed opposition to Britain leaving the European Union in the past. After the official vote on Brexit, last Thursday, the UK is now set to leave the EU for good.
On Sunday’s episode Last Week Tonight, Oliver did not hold back.
In the wake of the vote, in London stocks were dropping at rapid rates, the value of the pound reached a historic low and the Prime Minister David Camron resigned.
“It’s like catching an ice cream cone out of the air because a child was hit by a car,” Oliver said of Cameron, who proposed the vote.
“Yes, Cameron proposed the in or out choice himself which he normally only does when he’s deciding whether to f–k a pig’s mouth.”
The host also spoke about leading backers of the vote, Nigel Farage, leader of the U.K. Independence Party, and Boris Johnson. Both men suggested the vote to exit would serve as England’s “independence day.”
“Britain was already independent. In fact, it’s what many other countries celebrate their independence from,” Oliver ranted.
