Leavis Carroll – Alice in Brexitland


This is basically a Brexit/Trump themed parody of Alice in Wonderland, right down to Lewis Carroll’s famous nonsense poetry. It’s interesting because it managed to take something pretty depressing and to make it all a lot of fun, and seeing Nigel Farage as a Cheshire cat was particularly amusing.

Because it takes on Trump as well, there’s also plenty here for American readers too. It’s satirical and still relevant, though only just. If you want to read it, read it now.

Yeah, I didn’t really ‘get’ this one. It was just a bunch of pretentious essays that left a sour taste in my mouth. It was mostly nonsense, and when it wasn’t nonsense, I totally disagreed with it.
