image for Brexit News "Just Too Silly" Says Monty Python Fan
I've told you once!

Political analysts have said that any further Brexit news or communication from any of the leading political parties should be ignored, as the whole sorry subject has become "just too silly".

Since the June 2016 referendum, which ended with a vote to leave the EU, things, it's fair to say, have not gone well, and three years on, very few people seem to have the slightest idea of what is going on.

All kinds of terminology has been born: hard deal, soft deal, no deal, free market trade, customs house union, backstop, and others, but the one common thread that runs through the whole process is its silliness.

The UK should have left the EU by 29 March, but a whole series of issues remain unresolved, and Prime Minister Theresa May has been backwards-and-forwards to Brussels to plead for mercy so many times, she has now assumed the appearance of someone being stuck in a bank's revolving doors. The process has already been delayed, and Mrs. May is now seeking a further delay.

The House of Commons has always been the scene of dispute and argument, but current events and the inability of ministers to find 'common ground' on Brexit has meant the building has taken on the air of something resembling a madhouse.

One poltical commentator was reminded of a comedy sketch from the Monty Python team when he tried to sum up what is going on in parliament, when he said:

"Is this the right room for an argument?"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
