At its core politics is a bizarre and sometimes hilarious game.

Grown men and women – usually from elite backgrounds – shouting and bickering with each other in the name of public service.

Sometimes utter buffoons enter the arena: we’re thinking of you Nigel Farage and Donald Trump. The prospect of the latter entering the White House and leading the most powerful country in the world is the stuff of nightmares.

“Sunday Bloody Sunday. What a great song. It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday, doesn’t it?”

How can we combat the stresses of Brexit and the prospect of a Trump-led armageddon? With laughter – specifically Alan Partridge.

The Norwich DJ shares the kind of elitist, conservative little Englander worldview seen in many politicians. That’s what makes the Twitter account Political Partridge so incredibly funny.

The feed marries images and quotes of Steve Coogan’s comedy character with pictures of politicians going full Partridge. Trust us when we say it’s absolute dynamite.

Classic Partridgeisms on owl sanctuaries, an intense dislike for fennel and the merits of U2’s Sunday Bloody Sunday are all rolled into the tweets.

Here are some of the very best tweets from Political Partridge to give you lift in these uncertain times…
