by on Sep.20, 2016, under Rum Doings

Rum Doings Episode 217: Hell Low – Emergency Misery Episode

by on Jun.24, 2016, under Rum Doings

In our 217th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, poor old Cliff.

So, yeah. Recorded at 7.30am, this is our immediate reaction to Britain’s voting to leave the EU. We discuss the possible consequences, the devastating impact, and ponder best case scenarios for the future. Which is tough, at this point. Worth noting that Cameron announced his resignation the very moment we stopped recording, so we only speculate that he will.
