UK MP Michael Gove depicted as popular children's character Pob, losing his job by text message.

'Post-Brexit job cuts'

This was an illustration for an article about job cuts following the 2016 Brexit vote, the referedum on the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union. The result saw a number of politicians lose their job by way of text message, as the Conservative party attempted to hold its government together.

One of those unfortunate few is illustrated here; Michael Gove, who is commonly referred to as Pob, a popular television puppet character from the 80s.
