Not sure if that last interviewee was a parody or not. But definitely funny!
I assume it was like the old adverts that the team sometimes play - but this time taking the mickey about 1990s management techniques. Brilliant!

I was amazed at the lack of understanding displayed during the "Brexit Bananas" section. Making sweeping comments about subjects you do not understand is not a good thing to do. Factual mistakes, and poorly researched observations are not what I expect from this Techcast. My advise for the presenters would be to steer clear of politics. I myself will review my impressions of American society and politics to make sure I am not guilty of such misconceptions myself. Now, let me think, was it New York or Mexico where they speak "Mexican"? I think I'll drop George an email.
I think it was the general assumption that one side is mad (i.e. leave) and the other is sane. I've spent months and months thinking about it and I still wonder what is the best move. Also the focus on reports that people were now regretting voting "Leave" and the general impression that the loony racists are now taking over control of the country. Finally, they fact that they did not even know whether or not Wales voted leave or remain. That apparently required too much research so they decided to dump the blame for all the bad stuff on rural England. I'm sure that I could get on a podcast and rabbit on about how dumb the American democrats are not to select Bernie Saunders or that Trump's success shows just how extreme and racist all Americans are.
I suppose that the Monty Python got it all summed up in their "Election Night Special" sketch all those years ago. You know, the Sensible party versus the Silly party and the little pink pussy cat taking Barrow-in- Furness (gain from the Liberals). http://www.montypython.net/scripts/election.php.
I don't live in England. I just think that all sweeping statements are rubbish (apart from this one, of course).
