Kids’ TV did a Brexit explainer that’s so simple it’s brilliant
Children’s TV in Ireland did this 2-minute Brexit explainer and it went viral because it’s so well done.
There's been a lot of talk in the news about Brexit recently and you've probably heard a lot of words like 'backstop' and 'Chequers' – but what does it all mean? Here's one of RTÉ's political experts @RTENewsPaulC to explain. pic.twitter.com/93etaS2HO4

Beautifully done, everyone. And here’s what people had to say about it.
This is such a good explainer. It means many Irish kids are now more informed about Brexit than the British grown-ups negotiating it (Unless of course, those people are perfectly well-informed & Brexit was always just a cynical power grab by people happy to watch the world burn) https://t.co/TveH3V3cPm

It should be compulsory viewing in the UK

Can't help but notice this presentation for Irish children is pitched at the level the British news media tends to use for adults. https://t.co/5WDsGpUW2z

Children’s TV in Ireland providing a Brexit explainer that effortlessly exposes the basic ignorance underpinning almost every interview conducted with the likes of Rees Mogg, Davis & Johnson. (It’s incredibly simple but, in fairness, probably a bit too complicated for Dorries) https://t.co/AZfW42JEiO

A satirist would be proud to have written this. It sends up our Government's ludicrous position perfectly.

Not everyone appreciated it though.
It means keep yr Irish nose out of it!
