"this engaging and comic tale has a happy ending"

Spookily, in this 3020 people live indoors and online because there are viruses outside (as well as dangerous heat). Mind you, animals have the power of speech and a cow is the (notably competent) chancellor of the exchequer. In 2019, less fantastically, the worst characters are (devastatingly satirised) conspiracy theorists who will believe anything. Let’s hope that Baddiel is a real prognosticator: this engaging and comic tale has a happy ending.
