Britain is living in uncertain times. More general elections, coalitions of chaos and the prospect of Brexit on the horizon are all just a few of the massive issues facing the country

Prime Minister Theresa May remains in power for now, despite losing her majority after calling an entirely unnecessary election and everyone, to a man, is feeling a little lost in this increasingly divided nation.

That’s what makes Christian Zasche’s article on Britain “The Laughing stock of Europe” so concerning because it details, at some length, just how thoroughly screwed the UK is.

However, the article has since gone viral on Facebook after being shared and translated by Paula Kirby early this week and, in the cold light of day, it’s quite difficult to disagree with a lot of what is being said.
