WHAT IS IT?
A six-part, semiimprovised sitcom about a civil service trying to implement the will of the people after a hastily arranged referendum. In this case, the death penalty is to be reintroduced to Britain on a majority of 50.9% to 49.1%.
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?
Well, rst of all, because it’s very funny with excellent performances by the comedians who write and perform it. But more importantly, it gives an insight into the (exaggerated) kind of discussions that must be going on in Whitehall right now as Brexit is implemented in a deeply divided country. If nothing else, it’s a good reminder as to why referendums are a terrible idea.
Listen out for Harry En eld as the minister in charge of the death penalty, too.
HOW LONG AND HOW OFTEN?
Half an hour per episode, just like a classic sitcom. The
rst season is six episodes long, but it’s unclear if there will be more.
