Following the Brexit withdrawal in the newspaper (it is still a withdrawal, right? A most appropriate noun, for this case) is a bit like reading some of the U.S.-origin cartoons.
The story line is a bit tenuous and the jokes are a bit thin but you still read it most days because you can normally get a chuckle out of it.
