    Who would you cast as the star players?

    Maybe Glenn Close as Teresa May,
    David Jason as Nigel Farage,
    James Martin (chef) as Boris Johnson.

    I think YOU should play Theresa, Duke, err...Duchess.

    Farage? A pity Roger Lloyd-Pack is no longer with us. Trigger's broom with all those heads and handles would be a fine metaphor for UKIP.

    Some of them cry out for cartoon treatment. Boris could be a Kock, either weather or some other kind. Gove might be a slug, like Ken Baker in Spitting Image, though with some nifty animation he could be Boris's tool.

    The Remainers Brexit, a true story of unrequited love for Brussels and all things undemocratic.:p

    Farage played by Chris Helmsworth and preferably kitted out as Thor.

    Theresa May as Lady Macbeth.

    Boris as Superman.

    Gove as the snake in Genesis.

    Penny Mordaund as Wonderwoman. (Sorry, just want to see her in the costume as she is so drop dead beautiful)

    Paul Bettany as Raab C. Bexit.

    Rowan Atkinson would do a good Boris Johnson and I can just imagine Baldrick with the "oh look, we're an island" revelation, so he can be Raab.

    I know so few current film actors that I'll have to resurrect aome dead ones -
    Angela Merkel - Bette Davis
    Jean-Claude Junker - Charles Chaplin
    Nigel Farage - Mickey Rooney
    David (I don't give a damn) Cameron - Clarke Gable
    Theresa May - Meryl Streep

    As long as they all dress in oversized shoes, have a shiny red nose and drive cars that hilariously fall to bits, I don't think it really matters.

    Agreed, dumpty, Penny Mordaunt is a nice distraction from all else.

    Gove makes me think of a male version of Violet Elizabeth Bott.

    Thinking of the late, lamented 'Humph', Mrs Trellis reminds me the we have all had more than a mouthful of Jacob's.

    If Gove retrained at RADA, he would be a dead cert to play Kenneth Widmerpool, from Anthony Powell's' A Dance to the Music of Time', a role which would take no acting ability on his part whatsoever.

    Michael J Pollard as Michael J Gove?


    Him from Haircut 100 as the young Nigel Farage:


    A CGI rendition of the late great Victoria Wood as Angela Merkel, but played for laughs:


    Ian McDiarmid as David Davis:


    A Haystack as Boris Johnson:
