Welsh Tory bites off more than he can chew with Brexit bumble


Here’s a chump we haven’t ridiculed in a while: Andrew RT Davies, leader of the Welsh Conservatives.

Today (October 4), he made a dog’s breakfast of his Tory Conference speech. Davies, who campaigned for the UK to leave the EU, couldn’t spit out the word “Brexit”.

What he regurgitated instead was “breakfast”. Apparently he wanted to make it a success.

A cursory examination of Mr Davies suggests he has had quite a few successful breakfasts in his life.

If he devotes as much effort into Brexit… oh, who am I kidding? He’s a Tory.

He has probably forgotten the promises in his speech already – but there’s always the promise of a new breakfast tomorrow!

The leader of the Welsh Conservatives accidentally committed to making a success of “breakfast” – rather than “Brexit” – in his speech to the Tory party conference in Birmingham.

Andrew R. T. Davies told the audience: “Conference, mark my words, we will make breakfast… Brexit a success.”

The audience immediately burst into applause, while a sheepish Davies made light of the situation.

“Now that’s one word that wasn’t meant to come out like that, was it,” he said.

    Who in their right mind votes for these cretins, or is it a case of an untrained chimp wearing a blue rosette? Personally I’d prefer the chimp any day to that overweight and unpleasant character.

    “a consensus has now been clearly established in Westminster Hall that Brexit means breakfast. When I said that before the summer, the BBC thought it was a slip of the tongue, but my hon. Friend the Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford) has confirmed that it is in fact the case.
    Whether it is a dog’s breakfast or a full Scottish breakfast has yet to be determined, but the Prime Minister has appointed some cereal Brexiteers to lead the negotiations. Perhaps it is no surprise that some of them are getting a frostier reception in European capitals, and that some of our neighbours just want to say cheerio to the UK as soon as possible.”
