John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight could not have summed up what happened in Britain last week any better than it did with its “Aftermath of Brexit”.

After Britons voted for Brexit on the basis of tall claims that Britain sends 350 million pounds every week to the EU, leader of UK Independent Party Nigel Farage was quick to say that he never made any such statement.

Calling a spade a spade, John Oliver spoke about the lack of unity in the United Kingdom, with Northern Ireland and Scotland trying to exit the UK to join the European Union instead.

The stock market has crashed, the pound has fallen to its lowest value in thirty years and politicians have backtracked on the promises they made, much to the disillusionment of voters.

Many of the people who voted, searched on Google for what it meant to leave the EU and what the EU was in the first place after voting.

The next Prime Minister of Britain will have a huge mess to clean up – one that was made by the politicians and their false claims.
