The passenger: Theresa May is unlikely ever to be caught speeding. If her Brexit progress is any yardstick, she’d be more likely to be caught driving everywhere in reverse.

A motorist told Devon and Cornwall police officers the “meaningful vote” on Brexit that led to a resounding defeat for Theresa May was the reason they caught him driving at 86mph.

According to The Independent, when officers asked him why he had been travelling so fast, he replied: “I was listening to the results of the Brexit vote.”

You’ve got to love the police comments: “Another new excuse for us!”

And: “None of the excuses tonight have actually related to their speed.”

Trouble is, all of the excuses police had from motorists are likely to be more convincing than Mrs May’s excuses for her failure.

Postscript: I take it back. This is the funniest result of the Brexit vote:

Apparently it’s Dutch for “battle”.
