The inspiring, anarchic and hilarious story of how a quartet of activists brought the hypocrisy of the political elite to the masses. Damning leading politicians with their own statements, the Led by Donkeys campaign highlighted the duplicity and mendacity of Brexit in a devastating effective manner.
Seeking to highlight the hypocrisy of our politicians on Brexit four friends armed with nothing more than ladders, roller brushes and a treasure trove of damning statements from our leaders slapped up the politicians' biggest lies on billboards around the country.
This guerrilla operation wasn't easy, but it wasn't long before the British public enabled them to take things into their own hands - and the rest is history.
Leave the EU or remain? An apparently simple question divided the nation in historic fashion. Many of us believed the words of these politicians. By putting up their quotes as billboards, self-styled 'Led By Donkeys' had clear intentions - to compare the promises that have been made across the years with the damning reality.
The official visual account of how four ordinary people managed to expose the government's hypocrisies through a nationwide guerrilla advertising campaign.

“Excellent & Amusing”
This is a great read about 4 guys who took an irreverent approach to hypocritical politicians. It's really well written, highly amusing and shows what can be done, if you really care about something.
“Brilliant book holding politicians to account”
A fabulous record by some fabulous people of a rather unfabulous time in our country. Let hope we become fabulous again very soon.
