In the aftermath of the EU Referendum there's been an unseemly rush of political resignations, the England manager threw himself on his sword (though he probably missed), even Chris Evans got the hint. So in these most tumultuous of political times, I say if you can't beat them, join them. This is my letter of resignation
Dear Sir/ Madam
It is with regret that I tender my resignation as Chief Optimist, part-time Idealist and fully fledged member of Hope.
Despite being a member of this country for 51 years, the recent change in the country's working conditions and the abrupt closure of our Tolerance and Economic Sense departments have made my current position untenable
The welcoming of Lord Don't Have A Clue What to Do Next and Master Acceptable Casual Racism to the board has unfortunately compromised relations with our fellow countries. In addition, the hiring of a new CEO without consultation and full and frank discussion with both the directors or shareholders smacks worryingly of a takeover bid.
Though obviously I wish Rupert Murdoch every success in his new role.*
I will, of course, work the required notice period of Three Rolls of the Eyes and an I Told You So.
Yours. Very Sincerely,
A Quirky Kook
*I don't. I just need a reference.
