John Oliver Wants Lord Buckethead to Serve as the UK’s Brexit Negotiator

If you’re confused about what’s happening over in the UK lately between the early snap election that backfired on Prime Minister Theresa May and the upcoming Brexit negotiations, you’re in luck, because during last night’s Last Week Tonight, John Oliver broke down what it all means, what lies ahead, and what could happen for the UK if they fail to finalize Brexit negotiations over the next two years. After outlining the surprise snap election results – or as Oliver calls it, a “crumpetfuck of epic proportions” for May – Oliver proposes a hopeful solution to the mess the she’s made: The UK should nominate one of the snap election candidates, Lord Buckethead, to serve as the official Brexit negotiator. “How about instead of sending a career negotiator, why not send someone that there is no way they would expect? I’m talking about someone bold, unafraid to call it how it is, someone with a firm leather-clad grasp of the issues, someone with a bucket list of demands and an honest, slightly muffled voice? That’s right, I’m talking about the intergalactic space lord himself.”
