Divisive, chaotic and with implications for almost every aspect of national life, Brexit has been a godsend for political satirists - giving them a wealth of material - and audiences desperate for a laugh.

"There's a voracious appetite in the UK for anything to do with Brexit, and there's a huge appetite for satire," said Neil Rafferty, editor-in-chief of the popular satirical website The Daily Mash.

He told AFP: "It's a massive subject. There's also a massive number of colorful characters involved. There are some very extreme views, which are great for satirists."
