Where and who do we want to be? How might we get there? What might happen if we stay on our current course? In The Future of British Politics, comedian Frankie Boyle takes a characteristically acerbic look at some of the forces that will be key in coming years, from Scottish independence and post-colonial entitlement to big tech surveillance and the looming climate catastrophe. Despite his fears that ‘soon the only red tape in this country will be across the finish line of the compulsory Food Bank Olympics’, he manages to locate some hopeful signs amid the gloom, reminding us that ‘despair is a moment that pretends to be permanent’.
