Daily Mash takes satirical look at British politics
New streaming series The British Cabinet is picking up millions of fans who enjoy television that is not afraid to kill characters off.
The deaths of Michael Fallon and Priti Patel on consecutive Wednesday nights has created a real buzz about the UK cabinet, which is available on Netflix in the US.
Wayne Hayes of Madison, Wisconsin, said: “I’m telling all my friends about it. It’s like The Walking Dead but more bloodthirsty.
“There’s all these backstabbing characters on an impossible mission to find something called the Brexit which will apparently heal their ruined world, if it even exists.
“But they’re being attacked from every side, none of them trust each other, the leader’s falling to pieces and there’s a real mounting sense of dread because any of them could die at any moment.
“After last week you were like, shook, because they killed off that Fallon dude, so you thought nothing would happen this week but the tension just built and built and damn, they went there. Minor character but still.
“Can’t wait to see who it is next week. Nobody’s safe.”
Hayes added: “It is a bit ridiculous that Boris is always in the most dangerous situations and gets away unscathed. But, y’know, you have to suspend your disbelief.”
