John Cleese Explains the U.K. Elections
Oops—we were so caught up covering the 2016 presidential election in the United States that we forgot that citizens of the United Kingdom are about to go to the polls. We scrambled to put together a guide to the U.K. elections, but we realized that we didn’t know all that much about it. So we called in our special British elections correspondent, John Cleese, whom we keep on retainer for occasions like these. We had lots of questions, such as:
Bloomberg Politics: David Cameron—what’s he like?
John Cleese: A bit toffee-nosed.
BP: How about Nick Clegg? He’s like their version of Joe Biden, right?
JC: He’s only 17.
BP: What are the differences between Scottish, Irish, and Welsh people?
JC: Scots and Irish: large, ginger, hairy. From Wales: short, dark, and bowlegged. Very easy to spot.

Our thanks to John for educating us. Stay safe on the campaign trail!
