Despite wall-to-wall media coverage, the new release of ‘Tory Party: Civil War’ has failed to capture the public’s attention.
Instead, much to the shock of executives at BBC, ITN and Sky, most people would rather watch a superhero film than another hour of Conservative cabinet members arguing about the cost of flights if Britain left the EU.
Whilst at first it seemed that the adventures of Captain America, Iron Man and Black Widow would be beaten into a lowly second place, the public have not taken fondly to sniping between Boris, Cameron, Farage and Liz Truss – the void of charisma most known for her unnerving pork-pimping.
Whilst some have suggested that this is all part of the Leave campaign’s plan to ‘bore their way to a victory’, others have blamed it on a general inertia in the media to adapt to changing public demands, as Marvel has so aptly demonstrated.
’30 odd years ago they tried Iron Man and all that, but none of us were having it,’ James Beckinsole told us. ‘So Marvel adapted, they utilised better actors and technology, and gave us script after script filled with charm, mystique and danger.’
‘By contrast, nothings really changed since the Conservative Party: Civil War of 1990. I mean they’re still talking about Hitler for Christ’s sake!’
Joanna Rudwell echoed this sentiment, ranting to our reporter ‘I want something more from my internally damaging party schisms than this. Why should I settle for just a slightly higher definition image of Boris and Dave surrogates debating whose policy would most damage national institutions they both don’t care about?’
However, worryingly for the Remain campaign, it may not be just the Conservative Party: Civil War which is turning the public away through EU-fatigue. Recent polls have shown that most people would rather watch ‘almost anything’ than 5 more minutes of In/Out vox pops on a suburban high street.
