The Brexit Situation and Treasonous Behaviour

Thinking about Brexit and today’s news…….this is what happens in the UK when British people are upset (one way or the other!).  John Bull (shown in the image) is the British equivalent of Uncle Sam.

Cartoon by Richard Newton (1777–1798), an English caricaturist who drew cartoons until typhus got him aged just 21.  The poster below is all to do with our King George III (see The Madness of King George) who upset the Americans so much, they declared independence (over simplification I know) but, Americans….we were only joking!

Are we starting to feel the wind of change blowing through our country again I wonder?
