Excellent interview complementing this from New Culture Forum

Titania is obsessed about identity politics and overcoming the oppression that comes with her privileged background. She’s a politically-correct social justice warrior, fighting against the patriarchy. Meet her creator, the comic genius Andrew Doyle.

From Wikipedia

John Douglas Wilson Carswell (born 3 May 1971) is a British former Member of Parliament who in 2014 became the first elected MP for the UK Independence Party (UKIP),[1] representing Clacton.[2] From March 2017 to May 2017 (when Parliament was prorogued), he sat as an independent.[3]

As a member of the Conservative Party, Carswell was elected as the MP for Harwich in 2005 and Clacton in 2010. In August 2014, he changed his political allegiance to UKIP and announced his resignation as an MP, thereby necessitating a by-election in which he stood and was returned as a UKIP MP. He explained that he was joining UKIP out of a desire to see “fundamental change in British politics” and because he believed “many of those at the top of the Conservative Party are simply not on our side. They aren’t serious about the change that Britain so desperately needs.”[4] In 2016 Carswell admitted that he had “jumped ship with the express goal of changing the image of UKIP and ensuring that it was an asset rather than a liability in the referendum campaign…to decontaminate the brand”.[5] He left the UK Independence Party on 25 March 2017, to sit as an independent MP.[6][7] He did not stand at the 2017 general election.[8]
