Daily Show: U.K. needs to be overthrown

The Daily Show called in senior carryonologist John Oliver to make some sense of the foiled ‘terrour plots.’

The men arrested in England were British citizens, and that certainly doesn‘t bode well for the U.K.‘s future, because, as Oliver points out, ‘Democracy is the only known antidote to extremism.’

England must not be democratic enough if some of its citizens are terrorists. There’s only one solution:
“America must topple the British government…don’t worry, because Tony Blair has already pledged full backing for the overthrow of himself.”
