Most Britons think 'The Good Friday Agreement' was presented by Chris Evans

11-04-18

TWO decades on from the Good Friday Agreement, most Britons think it was a telly programme with Chris Evans. 

A countrywide survey showed that 18 per cent believed it concerned Ireland, 22 per cent thought it recognised Boyzone’s win at Eurovision and 60 thought it was a telly programme where Chris Evans took the piss out of someone called Will.

Nathan Muir of Doncaster said: “I think the Good Friday Agreement was a landmark in history because of the way it combined improvised comic banter with high quality guests like Backstreet Boys and Kylie.

“I’m not getting it mixed up with The Big Breakfast, am I? That would be embarrassing.”

However mother-of-four Susan Traherne said: “I remember it was on a Friday, because Easter isn’t some years, is it? Tony Blair was very pleased. I think he needed the soldiers for Iraq.”

And Theresa May of central London said: “Literally never heard of it until really recently. Turns out it’s…complicated.”
