Funny and apt - time for a repeat
If Henry Root was alive today he'd be a keen Brexiteer. Perhaps it's time to repeat this series, in which the fictional character Henry Root (his hobby is writing to politicians, donating a pound, and telling them to keep up the good work of returning the UK to the late 19th century) travels round Europe meeting various real movers and shakers. That great actor George Cole has a script, but frequently improvises in character. I remember it being very funny, and a great send-up of the Farage tendency.
