M'colleague Billy went to the launch of this book, which he said was "the most Stewart Lee thing ever" - consisting of the author standing on a riverboat bookshop on a West London canal, reading excerpts from the book through a PA system to the gathered crowd on the shore.

I find Stewart Lee's columns a bit harder going than his other output, probably because I haven't quite grasped the character of the character of Stewart Lee the Columnist. When all's said and done though I think I'm pretty clear on how I feel about Brexit, and about the actions of those who made it happen were directed to the people who were used to make it happen - so seeing Stewart Lee's take on it (and that's any of the various Stewart Lees that exist in whatever guise) was equal parts amusing and frustrating.
