Love it or loathe it or be completely indifferent to it, Brexit is currently the hottest topic in Britain.
Accordingly, it's not entirely unreasonable for the Little Britain boys to knock out a sketch show based upon that topic.
I have to say that, overall, the show was very good indeed - with some superb comedy touches.
As a Brexiteer myself, I assumed this would mock us little Englanders/knuckle-draggers entirely. But actually, it was quite fairly evened out across the political spectrum.
I was adamant Walliams and Lucas would use this as an opportunity to implement their political agenda into this one-off. Matt Lucas has of course played-up to the pressures in entertainment to be as woke as possible: https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/matt-lucas-little-britain-big-issue-interview-regrets_uk_59d602dce4b0380b6c9a673b?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAANBxHBMzYI1kx22HOWhcmPZ7DbkX0jUy0CYkKSVWueeGu4PugnnSYqLTGrxws6gzXot9ZpVctwKEBT1Gtt7JfreTAOlhA18s51bjdLDvGA7rW0cpcinhaoObFQCXNqxauI9f3M8oYoc3BYccizwd6St5NYH2Oe-WlOgl39CINjiD
However, Lucas found an exception to play an Eastern European in one of the Little Brexit sketches - as well as continuining to mock gays etc.
I still find Little Britain funny. But Walliams and Lucas, like many in the entertaiment industry are infuriatingly woke, to win their precious browny points.
