A comic perspective on the British EU referendum, the Track for June: The Belly and the Members from the Queen of Corkbots shares reflexions on Brexit through the medium of an Aesop's Fable.

The artwork is derived from a woodcut from La vida del Ysopet con sus fabulas historiadas (Spain, 1489) depicting a hunchbacked Aesop surrounded by events from the stories in Planudes' version of his life.

I'm not gonna pay my taxes
I'm not gonna fight your fight
I'm not gonna pay my taxes

Deep inside
Deep inside

We shall live and die
Together
We shall live and die
Together
